Commie is the only person in the western hemisphere I have found outside of Miggy's family who thinks this is a good or smart contract.
spankee, here's how it works. first of, he has 2 years left n his current deal. assume he has another typical monster here. he's now 32 with one year left. y take this deal at that point? may as well go all schwerzer and see what the market may bring. or at least he could, more cards. this deal is basically an 8 year EXTENSION. YOU TELLLING ME WITH MIGGS AS A TOTAL free agent in the cash rich MLB of tomorrow, noone would top the tiggies' offer? you folks are naive, like with papi. last year texas was willing to go 20m for a year. u dont get the econ for ur too clase to the situation. all it takes is ONE nutty suitor, tiggies couldnt risk it. its a discount for they came to him and he let loyalty and stability take over his thought process rather than pure greed...
Who made the right move on Albert Pujols - the Cardinals or the Angels?
The Cardinals, don't you think?
