    Elephant in the Room - Castellanos and Bauer

    With everything going on have we realized yet it’s possible Castellanos might never play 1 inning for the Reds during the regular season if he opts out? “We” May have traded an asset (TT) for 2 months of Bauer?

    Ughhhhhhhh
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    Just pointing out. It’s a very real (and in my opinion) likely scenario we don’t see baseball this season. If that happens the reds will have gone all in on a season that didn’t happen.

    Obviously more important things in the world to worry about and this is absolutely not the reds fault. But wow, talk about a snakebit franchise.

    I don't see anyway Castellanos opts out at this point. If things are so bad they don't have a season there is virtually no chance of it. Owners will be clutching every penny if things get that bad.

    It could be worse. We could be the Dodgers trading valuable players to Boston to never see Mookie Betts suit up in Dodger blue during the regular season.

    Castellanos has another opt out in 2021 so I doubt he would opt to find a new deal.
    Bauer would likely sign another one year deal with Cincinnati as long as they didn't try to low ball him.

    There's a million and one possibilities as to how it will all play out. The OP is one.

    I’d be surprised if Castellanos goes anywhere, Bauer is a wild card though.

    The fact that the Reds went in it to win it is probably the reason this is all happening, given how cursed this city’s sports teams are.

    It would suck for sure, but there is literally no possible way to plan for something like this so just roll with the punches if that happens. I'm guessing in 6-8 weeks we will be on the positive side of all this with Baseball getting ramped up.

    Is it confirmed that players will accrue a year of service time (and thus be FA) even if there is no season?

    So I bought my friend an elephant for his room.

    He said “Thank You,”

    I said, “Don’t mention it.”

    If there’s no season, Mookie Betts still would be a free agent, which would be quite a bad break for the Dodgers, who gave up a decent haul to get him. LA would still be able to make him a qualifying offer, which nets them a draft choice should he sign elsewhere.

    In the event of no season, Mookie Betts, Trevor Bauer and others in that class would still be free agents, eligible to sign with new team for the 2021 season

    In the event of a canceled season, MLB players’ service time in 2020 will be based on games played in 2019.

    Better to think of great past seasons (and wait and see about this season) than overreact to what probably won't happen.
