It's not fair to Kelenic and not best for the team at the moment but i'll wait 15 games when he's young to have another free year when he's older. There needs to be some kind of rule change so teams aren't able to do this to players though.
Problem is, this action and other actions by the front office Kelenic isn’t happy with. 95 times out of 100 I’d say the player needs to suck it up and shut up about it.... but this guy is going to be a future superstar.
When he refuses to sign the extension these actions will be why.
The Mariners will NOT let him walk in FA and get nothing in return, so they will trade him before his contract is through, so there goes the extra year theory. Secondly they will get nothing much in return if they trade him with one year left with teams knowing he will hit FA the year after..... which means you have to trade him 2 years out to get anything of value in return, which means you are going to lose him a year earlier than you would of if you hadn’t played arbitration games.
