The Offishial Show Episode 142: Sandy Alcantara Extension Reaction

In a refreshingly smart move, the Marlins are finalizing an agreement to sign Sandy Alcantara to a five-year, $55-plus million deal (per Craig Mish of SportsGrid). Alongside Aram Leighton of Just Baseball, Ely Sussman breaks down how this impacts the rest of Miami’s offseason. Then, they quibble about Aram’s Pablo López blockbuster trade idea, the development of prospect JJ Bleday and Griffin Conine being left unprotected for the MLB Rule 5 draft, concluding with an Alcantara-themed “Decision Quiz.”

Based on comparable extensions signed by fellow arbitration-eligible players, the structure of Alcantara’s contract is expected to be heavily backloaded.
