He's 29. He was 25 when they signed him. Entering his prime. Oops.
Still, there's the Game 7 rain delay speech. I like him. But clearly he has not produced.
who taught himself to hit left handed so he could switch hit. Except he can't hit right handed.
Does he need glasses. I can't think of another reason why he would be so bad after being a good hitter. I assume he was a good hitter with Atlanta. I didn't really watch him when he played there.
Each is only 26 so are not older players. A 7 year contract in each case is reasonable. A ten year contract is ridiculous.
Pujols is signed until he's 41! What the hell did the Angels expect him to do at that age?
Are they still paying Josh Hamilton, too, BTW?
On Davis, it's like giving that contract to Rob Deer, because Davis is a latter day Rob Deer. The guy was below the Mendoza line as late as 2014 before he signed his current contract. And because of Davis's contract, the O's could't afford to keep Machado. Dan Duquette had to be one the worst GMs in baseball history.
