Tigers, Justin Verlander agree to record extension

The Detroit Tigers and starting pitcher Justin Verlander reached an agreement on a $140 million contract extension that will keep Verlander in Detroit through 2019. The new deal begins in 2015 and includes a $22 million vesting option for a sixth year. Combined with the $40 million Verlander was already owed for the next two seasons, the Tigers will now pay the pitcher $180 million over the next seven seasons.

Giants lock up Buster Posey to a long-term deal

The Giants signed defending National League MVP Buster Posey to an eight-year, $159 million contract extension Friday that ties him up through 2021, including a full no-trade clause. It's the largest deal in baseball history for a player with three or fewer years of major-league service, and the second-largest contract for a catcher, trailing only Joe Mauer's eight-year, $184 million deal with the Minnesota Twins.

:shock: Wow. I appreciate Cutch taking $52 million over 6 years even more now.

Cutch deserves that type of money

Good lord, and to think we almost could of drafted Posey. Though paying that kind of money to a catcher is always dangerous.

Extending Cutch last year was the most prescient thing this team has done in some time.

I have to think that these contracts make extended Pedro even harder though.

With Scott Boras his agent, it's a definite that Alvarez will test free agency. All of his players do. Most likely, the Bucs will trade Pedro the year before his free agency and, frankly, it's what they need to do. iMHO.

I don't know. Players of his build who don't hit for average and K a ton without doing much walking so far in their career, he might not be that expensive to keep.

Of course we're talking a few years away, he might be an elite power hitter by then.
