And how many contending teams have a key corner OFer or DH that they'd have to replace with a guy the caliber of Martinez? We're basically talking about him needing an injury to occur to 1 of maybe 25 players in baseball. Then narrow that down to the guys who are only signed for 2018. Because the Yankees aren't going to sign JDM for 6/$150M when Judge is lost for the season. They're going to offer him 1/$20. Good luck JD...Baring an Aaron-Boone-like-injury to a key offensive player on a GFIN team (this is a very limited pool) this whole "I'll just sit it out until I get the mega-deal I deserve" ploy seems like a very dangerous game to play. At some point in time, everyone and everything under the sun "jumps the shark." We may be about to witness Boris doing his best Fonzie impression.
