Yeah, exactly. Not too many people get a chance to make 25 million a year. Good for him that the Angels wanna pay him so much.

i can't imagine the angels are going to be too thrilled when they're paying a 40 year old part time DH $25 million per year... but i'm sure albert will be thrilled. much like a-rod is.

Exactly! Nobody put a gun to anyone's head and said sign these guys. The consequences of such a deal are paying a guy who's beat up and old. Oh well. Ain't my fuckin money. The Yanks have at least squeezed a World Series title out of Arod. But, he did kinda have a little help. I'm sure the Angels have a better chance with Albert on board, but nothing is guaranteed. Just ask Cliff Lee and The Phillies.


Best 10 year deal I can think of was Dave Winfield's after the 1980 season. The Yanks definitely got their money's worth, but Big Dave couldn't bring them a World Series title. Too bad Boss George had to be a scumbag to him most of his time there thanks to Dave's 1 for 22 performance in the 1981 World Series. But, hey, the man kept paying him. Alas, Big Dave was traded to the Angels and didn't make it all the way through his deal. The Yanks were close to retiring Dave's number 31, but he chose to go into the HOF as a Padre. Boss George no likey.

Of course, by then with inflation and stuff it'll be about the equivalent of paying a guy 17 or 18 million now by the time his contract ends.

The Phillies are going to be paying a 36 year old full time DH $25 million in just a few years. God, Ryan Howard sucks.

Yeah, and he could outperform his salary a great deal in the first years of the contract. Basically, the Angels are betting that the decline in the past two years is not a trend but rather a blip. Risky still, though.

I'm just really glad the Marlins don't have interest in Fielder. We've got what we need with bats, unless we want to add a better option in CF. We still need another SP.

And then Matt Moore signs a deal a la Evan Longoria. Moore will put up ridiculously more WAR/$ than Pujols. Friedmann is insane!

What an idiot. I hope the Brewers have an out clause in his contract for this and cut him, then resign Fielder.

Gotta admit. Something seems off regarding this. Maybe I'm just in denial.

It sounds like Braun is going to fight this and he's adamant that he is innocent.

I don't even care about players using PEDs anymore. People have been doing it forever.
