They weren't close. Again, there was an extra year - less AAV. I'm not saying that they didn't lose him, guys. But they clearly weren't going to offer more than a 10 year deal, and they offered the most per year. Clearly they were close - the Cubs have some of the deepest pockets in the league and weren't in the running despite pursuit. I don't fault them for not wanting to go longer than 10 years. They were willing to pay the most over 10 years. I also think it's fair to criticize the Twins for not going all in on an acquisition - just not this one. Last time plan A didn't work out (Wheeler) they pivoted and landed Donaldson with the biggest FA contract they've ever given. If they end up with Dansby Swanson and trade for Pablo Lopez are you still going to be mad that they didn't pay Carlos Correa to to not play for the last 3-5 years of a 13 year deal?
