Miami and Stanton are apparently close to finalizing a 13 year, $325MM deal:  http://www.cbssports...s-325m-13-years

 

"Before this deal, which is for $25 million a year, the Marlins had only $8 million in future obligations, according to mlbtraderumors.com. Now that figure will rise by about 40 times."

Apparently Stanton doesn't like playing for them, so they are gonna have to over-pay to keep him.

But that kind of contract can cripple a franchise if something happens to Stanton.

But in terms of potential production, based on the modern salaries in baseball - if Stanton goes 40 homers and hits 280 for the next decade - then it's a good value deal.

Then you look at guys like Arod who are really 5 million dollar players now that are making 25 million a year......or even a loser like andre Etheir of the dodgers. Guy is making 15 million a year and he can't even hold down a starting job.

 

For a small market team investing that much money into one player is pretty risky.

I'd trade him. That rumored deal of Puig and another quality prospect looks pretty good for both teams.

 

But I'm just as disgusted as the over-paying for smaller deals.

Mets give Cuddyer 21 million and give up a first round draft pick for a 35 year old guy who is injured every year.  Take away his Colorado years and he is a guy who hits 270 with 15 homers a year.  

An injury prone 35 year old that is gonna play in 120 games, hit 270 and maybe hit 15 homers.........that's worth 11 million a year?

It's deals like that that drive up the value of other marginal players and continues to throw salaries out of whack for everybody.

And, in the first blockbuster trade of the offseason, Atlanta trades Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden to St. Louis for Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins.  Like Miller, but assuming the Cards extend Heyward, I think they got the better end of the deal.  Doesn't sound like Atlanta was going to be able to extend Heyward, but still surprised to see him moved during the offseason.

 

Also, Toronto signs Russell Martin to a 5 year, $82MM deal.

I find these deals very interesting.

 

The  media is describing Martin has having a great year and being worth a new contract worth 16 million per...........while Heyward is described as being a bust.

 

Look at their numbers.

 

31 year old

290 avg, 11 homers, 67 RBI

16 million per year for the next 5 years  (career 267 hitter).

 

25 year old

271 avg, 11 homers, 58 RBI, 20 steals, won gold glove

8 million

 

But one is a hero and one is a bust?
