The Elvis Commentary
12:20 am @DanAllsup: If you are going to give someone an 8 yr deal, it should be given to a 24 year old #ElvisExtension
12:22 am @DanAllsup: The negatives of signing a 24 yo SS to a long term deal: the guy behind him *MAY be even better, and is infinitely cheaper
8:33 am @SDIMikeMcGehee: Elvis and Profar up the middle until 2019. Yeah, I’m stoked.
8:57 am @FutureGM: Was working on stuff in my new house late for the third night in a row, wasn’t on Twitter. Is the Elvis extension rumor real?!? Woooohooooo
8:58 am @DanAllsup: This Elvis- extension is great. Top 5 guy at his position in the middle of the diamond. Always a good idea.
9:00 am @DanAllsup: The goal now is to get the most value from Profar. Whether it’s playing 2B, or CF, or for the Miami Marlins.
9:03 am @DanAllsup: FWIW @keithlaw said on @BenRogers podcast a few months ago that: Profar’s 6 yrs is more valuable than Price or Stanton.
9:06 am @DanAllsup: It’s not a huge loss to play Profar at 2B a few years. He can swap positions in 4-5 years when EA starts to regress on D.
@mavsfan1310: Do you think Elvis will be less than stellar defensively at 28 or 29? Does Beltre suck at 34?
9:43 am @LaBlynne: So they’ll keep him until 2022? Thank you JD, I love you.
9:56 am @DanAllsup: Elvis’ new deal will give him the 2nd largest contract in yrs/$ in #Rangers franchise history….. for a SS. #Arod
@TexasStrangers: hoping Elvis over the life of this extension can exceed the 25.6 WAR ARod put up in 3 years. That’s 3.2 WAR per year.
3:45 pm @twbgg: I’d probably include Profar in a deal for one of David Price, Giancarlo Stanton, or Sal Perez. #probably
4:59 pm @FutureGM: Elvis is the first $100M player on the Rangers since A-Rod, correct? #thisisface #itisitis
