After reading that, I can only say that I guess Joe wasn't as predictable and locked into set roles as we thought.
And yet when Joe used Betances creatively, for multiple innings, he was killed for overusing him and burning him out.
I guess not every player exercises that opt-out clause. That is when
How come when ARod announced that he was opting out during the World Series the media and fans had a meltdown but when another player does it no one says
Make the qualifying offer to Tanaka and take the pick. Use the 22M to sign Otani. (I am in the minority but I don't think Tanka will opt out at 22M/yr)
I'm surprised this hasn't been posted
