Why the Astros Won't Do an Ohtani Deal

This is a special video ONLY message. Why the Astros Won't Do an Ohtani Deal.

Here is a link to the table I showed.

The Forbes Article

Here is my calculation of the Ohtani deal @ 3%

Here is a theoretical Bregman or Altuve deal and how it could look 75% deferred.

Would Crane REALLY want to do that deal for $4.65M AAV benefit? I don't think so.

As far as the players go, if you think the Ohtani deal is a great option, go tell your boss tomorrow to defer 97% of your 2024 salary.
