Yesterday Merritt Paulson was up to his old tricks again as he sent out a tweet suggesting that an annoucement about a contract extension. A lot of people speculating and hoping the announcement had to do with Diego Valeri. I hazard a different guess and got a response from MP.
Here is the sequence of the tweets:
I said I would not tease new player signings during our season.So I won't... (Did I say anything about existing player extensions?)— Merritt Paulson (@MerrittPaulson) April 30, 2013
I responded with this:
@merrittpaulson Darlington Nagbe is my guess. Considering he is coming to the end of his GA contract.— Ryan Gates (@chisaiiou) April 30, 2013
His answer was this:
@chisaiiou I would not assume one guy on existing. also what's your guess on first thing?:)— Merritt Paulson (@MerrittPaulson) April 30, 2013
It is safe to assume there will be multiple player extensions announced soon and at least one player signing. I also think that the response to my guess elicited a response because it was correct but it is pure speculation.
So the question to you is who do you think got contract extensions and who are the Timbers going to sign?
