It has been a relatively slow offseason in Major League Baseball with many of the big name free agents still being left unsigned. But one of the big names formally on the market is now off it. Former Royals 1st Baseman and World Series Champion Eric Hosmer has reportedly agreed to an 8 year deal with the San Diego Padres. Many critics will point to this as nothing more than a money grab because Hosmer is signing for a lot of money to play on one of the worst teams in baseball.
Jonas Knox thinks Hosmer to San Diego is a fantastic move for the Gold Glover and that most of us would have done the exact same thing if given the opportunity.
