If 2.0 bWAR / 2.7 fWAR is a disappointing half for him then we've got a terrific player.

 

I think they should look into an extension sooner than later.  Just gonna get more expensive, IMO. And it'd be a nice way to tell everyone that they are getting serious about trying to improve the team and not just trying to improve the system.

Not a Boras guy and they’ve got a ways until he’s an FA so they can def tinker with some stuff.

Get it done.

Hes a stud but hes under team control for 3 more years through his 30 yr old season. I have no problem going year by year. I guess you could try buy his team control years and get another 2

Yeah that's what I'd look to do.  5 years with a team option or two.  Lock him in through his early 30s.

 

If you go year-to-year (unless Ced is the one saying no), you'd be basically committing to not extending him beyond his control.  Because if you're willing to talk yourself out of a deal now, then no matter how well he plays the next few years you'll talk yourself out of a bigger deal that doesn't begin until he's 31 ("royal you" here, not necessarily "you 2035").

My concern would be how much defensive value does he lose as he hits 30 and beyond. Especially, not having an arm. But I love the guy. If they could work out a 5 year extension Im game

It'd probably depend on who the #1 pick is too, if they feel good about Druw enough to take him over Termarr and friends, that probably isn't ideal for Cedric staying around like 5 years from now

Plus his defense has been terrific.  He deserves a GG.

I grew up watching Paul Blair, who was magic in centerfield.  Mullins is not as good as Blair, but he is in the neighborhood.

The joke back then was that Blair owned the centerfield portion of Memorial Stadium and leased it back to the Orioles.
