Where Did The Padres Get All The Money?!

Post by Dan_Stonerook »

Looks like Scherzer is going to San Diego.

They were at the luxury limit with the Frazier trade.

I am guessing they aren't afraid to pay a luxury tax to win. The Padres had losing records from 2011 to 2019. The final ingredient to a rebuilding process is not being afraid to spend money when the time is right.

Based on what I've read, Scherzer's contract is so loaded with deferrals and bonuses that the Padres will only be taking a $12 million or so hit against the luxury limit.

Still, it looks like they're also trying to get Hosmer's contract off the books. No doubt they'll be looking to swallow a big chunk of that contract and repeat the James Shields trade that somehow netted them Fernando Tatis, Jr.

Wish we could have taken that approach.Or at the level they are doing it at.

They reported a few hours ago that it was nearly done with the Padres. I'm not sure what happened, but now it is nearly done with the Dodgers. My guess is the Nationals keep leaking the stories.

I actually think it was a money issue for the Padres. They needed to move Hosmer and they couldn't. The Dodgers were able to take more the contracts than the Padres.
