I feel like he is not going to opt out of his contract and not bc of injuries or performance issues but bc he will wholeheartedly enjoy it playing with judge and the rest of the baby bombers . Also just chasing home run records with a guy standing an inch taller than you that is humble beyond belief. Here's to the start of a bromance!

If Stanton thinks he can get more money by opting out, he will.

Consensus seems to be that with the way this off season has gone Tanaka was smart not to opt out.  Stanton has 2 more off seasons to see if the owners' new found frugality is real or just a one season anomaly.

I personally hope the owners have come to their senses, I don't care how much money they make per year, but after 3-4 years, that's as long as any high dollar contract should be... If they're still on top of their game, they can sign another deal....

For the last decade the talent has received approximately 50% of MLB revenues.  If this starts to dip then the MLBPA and agents have to figure out how to get players paid earlier in their careers.  It is foolish to pay players for what they did for someone else that they couldn't possible do any longer.  Shaving a year of arbitration off of team control may be the solution.

Cutting the service time for free agency to 5 years and maybe a minimum floor for payroll will almost cetainy be things the union will want in the next CBA negotiations.  But for now I can't think of anything the owners would want enough for them to re-open the current CBA so the players essentially have  no leverage except to decertify and strike.  And this is not 1994.  If you remember when they went out and canceled the remainder of the 1994 season and it dragged on into 1995, the gov't not so subtly hinted it might want to re-examine MLB's antitrust exemption of they locked the players out that spring.  I don't think that card is in the deck if they were to strike because they are unhappy with the CBA they agreed to.

Un-ban controlled substances, problem solved.  Players will be mashing and striking batters out into their 40s and they won't outlive their money.

I think that there is a 50/50 chance that he'll opt out.
However, it's hard to tell at this point because he's so new to the Yankee family and he's just so excited to be part of it.
He's going to soon find out how different the New York Yankee Organization is different than Miami or any other ballclub in the League. We know this, because of all the people who have played for other teams and have verbally expressed their desire to remain Yankees, like Andy Pettitte or even CC Sabathia.


I think Stanton already kinda knows this. There are sourced reports claiming that Stanton has already thought this through and that, no matter what, he will not opt out of his contract, in a few years, to be a free agent. There is also another story claiming that he and Jose Fernandez were actually planning to exile out of Miami and be Yankees when the time came. How he thought about doing is beyond me, but then again, he did manipulate of the Marlin Front Office to trade him closer to home (in CA) or specifically to the New York Yankees.



If all this was true, than this all points to him being happy with his contract and his situation and is not even thinking of a "change."
However, we'll never really know. If the Dodgers start batting their eyes to him...lol...ya just never know.

if he continues to put up numbers like last season he'll opt out, and if he loves NY he'll make it his first choice to sign with...  just like CC did...
