That's all fairly positive -- yet about 94% of the posts here are assuming he's gone.
What does this even mean? SOSH not living up to your standards of...what exactly?
I for one would like to read threads about contract negotiations without 90% of the posts being about conspiracy theories and fake offers just to show the fanboy fans that they tried but the greedy player left for more money.
I think it means that many (possibly a majority) of the posts look at the gloomiest possible outcome (be it in player negotiations, a three-game series in May, the playoffs, or a prospect's development) and accept it as a given. It's a common thread.
Exactly. I wasn't exactly writing that in hieroglyphic. Some of this "analysis" is just downbeat, gloomy conspiracy theory for the sake of saying it.
Anyway, if it's $12M per for three years, that sounds about right -- yes, an overpay, but a reasonable one. I'm not sure Lowell will take it, but I could imagine him doing so and feeling he could live with himself for it.
