One of my co-workers is a super Marlins fan. This is our actual conversation this morning:
[9:10:06 AM] James: McCann is probably not going to be a Brave next year I hear.
[9:10:28 AM] Lauren: The media keeps screaming that, and the fans are jumping on that idea.
Here's the thing. Mac was still under club control when he accepted his first contract. Over the course of the contract, he earned less than he would have via arbitration and free agency.
He has the same agent as Chipper, who took repeated "hometown discounts" to stay a Brave.
Huddy also took "hometown discounts" to stay a Brave.
I'm not saying I think the Braves will lowball him, but I think there's a chance he'll stay.
he'll have to be making more than BJ Upton, haha
[9:13:07 AM] James: LOL, yes
[9:14:25 AM] Lauren: So I have hope. :)
