Carlos Rodon believes Yankees fans more ‘invested’ than Giants fans

Now playing on the East Coast, Rodón explained the main difference between the fans in New York and those in the Bay Area.

“The fans here want to win. They care. They care a lot,” Rodón said (h/t’s Bob Klapisch). “Giants fans are invested, but not like in New York.

“Win or lose, you’re not going to get booed in San Francisco.”

On Sept. 4, Rodón said after the Giants’ 5-3 walk-off win over the Arizona Diamondbacks that San Francisco has “very faithful fans” and explained that Giants fans “care” and was “grateful” to them for continuing to support the team, even amid a long losing streak.

Carlos Rodon joining Yankees on 6-year, $162M deal, sources say

The New York Yankees and free-agent left-hander Carlos Rodon have agreed on a six-year, $162 million contract, sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The agreement was first reported by New York Post.

Rodon set a career high for wins with the San Francisco Giants in 2022 in going 14-8 with a 2.88 ERA and made his second All-Star team. His 31 starts and 178 innings were a career high, and followed a 2021 season in which he went 13-5 with a career-best 2.37 ERA for the Chicago White Sox.

Yankees expected to make formal Carlos Rodon offer very soon

Of course, seven years at $1,000,000 per year is an offer, so the info is meaningless.

The initial indication is that Rodon seeks seven-plus years at $200 million plus, and while the Yankees seem reluctant to go to that length, they also seem very serious and hopeful about this pursuit.

Carlos Rodón rumors

I know we’ve seen some silly new contracts but is any team desperate enough to go $210/7 for Rodon?

With the cost and commitment for top-tier free agents increasing, perhaps it’s no surprise that arguably the No. 1 pitcher on the market, Carlos Rodón, has reportedly upped his demands to interested clubs. He “is seeking a minimum of seven years on a $100 million-plus deal,” sources told Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Brendan Kuty of previously reported that Rodón was seeking six years with an average annual value around $30 million per year in his talks with teams. Slusser writes that increased contract length might scare the Giants off from re-signing the left-handed ace.
