both in money per year and length.

At $25 mil per year he'd be the 11th highest paid player in baseball. It's roughly Joey Votto's current contract with the Reds. I'd argue Votto's a better hitter than Machado, but Machado's shortstop and not a first baseman, so they do have to pay a premium for that.
