Will anyone accept a qualifying offer? I mean, it’s been FOUR seasons already!
It’s a question that’s been asked since the introduction of qualifying offers after the 2012 season. Will someone finally accept the one-year deal?
No player ever has, even though nine qualifying offers were extended after the 2012 season, 13 were extended the following year and 12 last season. This season, a record 20 qualifying offers were extended to players by 13 different ball clubs.
