    • baseballfan92 3 years ago

      Arod is signed for longer and they only did one player per team.

  2. Carlos Gonzales? 

  3. Evan Longoria?

      in order to eliminate bias and speculation, Ben didn’t take into account club options, even if they are near locks to be picked up. 

      without looking at specifics, longoria’s contract has a bunch of club options at the end of it, which weren’t factored in.

    Where’s Matt Holiday? He’s signed until 2016 by the Cardinals.

      The list is the single longest contract held by every team. Holliday is signed through 2016 but the Cardinals recently signed Molina through 2017.

    I totally forgot about the Cubs signing Concepcion. Not the best numbers in A ball.

    Perfectly fine with Cain and Bum being our longest contracts!

    Shouldn’t the Mets rep be Bonilla?

    Tee hee.

       He had a personal services contract as recall for over a decade.. Ramirez with Boston had one.. Pujols with Anaheim has one with Anaheim after his deal expires..

      They just banned them, so no more deals to shake hands and get 1-2m bucks a season I reckon’.

    Crawford & Lackey  are long term contracts not mentioned that help their team the most by being on the disabled list.

  10. Cliff Lee is signed through 2015.

    I’ve never seen so many people fail to grasp a fairly simple concept… 

  12. D.j. Wilson 3 years ago

    haha I love how the Cubs and Mariners are guys I’ve never even heard of

    • BrentL 3 years ago

      You seriously have no idea who Danny Hultzen is? Arguably the best LHSP in the minors.

  13. tacopants 3 years ago

    Didn’t the Cubs sign Jorge Soler for like 8 or 9 years?

  14. Wes Whitenack 3 years ago

    Who is you?

  15.  Mariners farm hand.

  16. Ah, very well. Thought there was something I was missing.
