Seattle Mariners The team’s decision to go bankrupt on outfielder Julio Rodriguez only made Atlanta Braves general manager Alex Ansopoulos look more like a genius in the process.
The winner of the underrated Julio Rodriguez who was paid handsomely on Friday was Alex Anthopoulos.
While Seattle Mariners paid Rodriguez like he was freaking out A-Rod or something, Atlanta Braves at The Battery with AA power Keep winning. Seattle had an emerging superstar in their rookie midfielder, so the team paid him $210 million over the next 14 years. Let’s hope this doesn’t blow up in Seattle’s face like paying wazoo for ole Robinson Cano. Add in club and player options, and other sweet incentives, and the deal could be worth more than $450 million.
Julio Rodriguez’s new contract guarantees him $210 million over 14 years and could be worth $450 million over at least 20 years, with club and player options.

Rodriguez may be like a fish Bars are breaded like a bar, but that’s why Ansopoulos is a true genius.
Atlanta Braves: Julio Rodriguez The contract proves that Alex Ansopoulos is a genius
While Rodriguez’s earnings will be far more than generational, look at how friendly the deceased was to the team ls Anthopoulos with his two young stars, outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. and second baseman Ozzie Albies. Acuna signed an eight-year deal worth $100 million in 2019. He is only 24 years old. The Warriors have two club option years in 2027 and 2028 for just $17 million each.
What’s even more shocking is to see what this seriously undervalued deal Albis has. He may be recovering from a broken foot, but he signed a seven-year deal worth $35 million in 2019. Albis is 25 years old. The Warriors have two club option years in 2026 and 2027 for just $7 million each. 15 years of service, Atlanta gets Acuña and Albies for $135 million, maybe four more…
IF THE LAST TWO The club option consists of the Warriors for Acuna and Albis, and we are considering splitting a total of $48 million over four years of service between the two. I mean, that’s borderline crime. Even if they do get new deals or restructure, guess what? Warriors midfielder Michael Harris II, whose contract expires in 2032, is only $9 million in AAV. Riley (10 years, $212 million) and Matt Olson (8 years, $168 million), they are absolutely capable of doing so and continue to be big hitters beyond that. It all boils down to two very important things: The Braves keep winning, and the Battery is an absolute cash cow. This is what your dividend reinvestment ends up looking like…
Ultimately, the Warriors can now afford huge financial swings because the battery is far A huge hit that far exceeded our wildest expectations. It is a year-round entertainment destination in the Cumberland area of Cobb County. Instead of fixing Turner Field for Fulton County, Atlanta wisely decided to move north and gain financially from establishing its own Warriors Mecca.
The move was controversial at the time, and it took a minute for the products on the field to reflect The Battery’s atmosphere. Not that it’s always a good time for the Warriors, but the financial capital will work in their favor, as it was when Ted Turner had the team in the Super Station era. Not only can Atlanta spend big bucks, they can eat bad contracts.
The brave will always win.
