Samson: Weighing the risks of the Rays reportedly signing Wander Franco to a huge, long-term deal

On Wednesday’s episode of “Nothing Personal with David Samson,” David Samson gone over Wander Franco’s brand-new offer. “Let me introduce you to the mighty Wander Franco,” Samson starts, including that he was the No. 1 possibility in all of baseball 2 years in a row.

Franco has actually played 70 video games for the Tampa Bay Rays, not even half a season, however supposedly landed a record-setting offer. According to those reports, he and the Rays are surrounding an 12 year, $225 million agreement.

The Rays have actually never ever signed a gamer for over $100 million, however things might be altering in a significant method. 

Samson talks about Franco’s 2021 season, stating he “sets the world on fire,” after reaching base in 43 straight video games and ending up being the youngest gamer to do so. 

If you’re the scout that is assessing Franco, you are grading him as an A and then want to provide him a long-lasting agreement, you much better be right. Samson continues to highlight the threats associated with signing a young gamer for that much cash which long of a time.

Samson stated:

“Talk to me about risk reward. Talk to me about cost certainty … if you don’t know the player and you have made that 20-year-old player or 21-year-old player rich for generations, do you know well enough that his motivation will stay strong? Do you know for certain that his health will stay perfect?”

If Franco wins MVP, wins a World Series and assists get arenas constructed then that benefits him and the group, however Samson concerns, what if he does not do all that?

This is certainly one to wait and see.
