    Cruz says it's tough to take less money.

    What I find interesting is that his love for his family and the Giants were more important to him than getting a huge payday somewhere else. I rememer mentioning that, and people said that players go where the money is, not their loyalty. Not always the case.

    MUCH better.

    The thing is, there WAS NO huge payday available elsewhere and that is why we settled in where we settled in. He got a fair payday and good security considering that he was a RFA and not a UFA.

    Every player's agent is going to use the contracts of UFA when negotiating for ther RFA client but that isn't reality.

    Now if VC wanted to sit out the year or sign for the tender offer AND bear the risk of injury the whole thing would be different.

    I think we landed in the right spot for both parties.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    I was going to mention that too.

    It's not like he really had a choice either, nonetheless, it was an interesting comment on his part.

    I like the young man and am thrilled to have him locked up. Whatever words he uses to find comfort in the deal he signed are fine by me.

    +3, nobody was offering Cruz jack spit. Hence, his "its tough to take less money" (albeit 8mil a year is less money? HAHALOLROFLMAO) statement is false. just not based on a real situation

    I'm not surprised that matters more to him, it's pretty much been obvious his Mom and Abuela were his most influential role models growing up.
