This is how i look at it. If he signs with Boston for 3yrs $39mil that is $13mil per.
Add up the 39mil with 51 and you get 90mil. So you dished out $90mil for 3yrs of work which is basically like paying $30mil the next 3yrs. Not even Arod got that and he plays EVERYDAY. If Boston doesnt reach the WS Theo is going to be throwing more than chairs around his office. He's gonna be throwing his body thru a window, stories up.
If the Phillies could do what Boston did while adding Soriano and bullpen help. Would i care about how much money was spent/waisted? I be lying if i say i did. So ehhh. Funny part is if he gets a 3yr deal and is free at age 29 and has been successful. NYY is throwing a blank check his way.
