Default 2013 Major League Baseball Thread: A Grand Finale



Buster Posey signs nine-year deal
Quote:
The San Francisco Giants have agreed with Buster Posey on a nine-year, $167 million contract in a landmark deal, according to ESPN and multiple other media outlets.

Posey's new deal is the longest ever for a catcher, and worth the second-most money after Joe Mauer's $184 million, eight-year deal with the Twins. It's also the most money ever guaranteed to a player with fewer than three years of service time.

The contract, which is also the longest in Giants history, covers 2013-2021, with a team option for 2022. There is also a full no-trade clause for the duration of the contract.
Justin Verlander gets record deal
Quote:
Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers have reached agreement on a new contract that could exceed $202 million, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney.

Verlander's deal, which would make him the highest-paid pitcher in the game, is for seven years and worth $180 million, sources said. A vesting option for an eighth year could push the deal to $202 million.

NEW BASEBALL SEASON IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets go!

AL East going to be very interesting and look out for those pesky Pirates. They may finally make the playoffs.

Lol at Astros being a AL team.

Boy, where does the time go?


Jeter retiring.....really too much to put into words for a Yankee fan. But along with the other core players, I feel fortunate to have been a Yankee and baseball fan and witnessing their careers. May be the last of those sorts of eras.

Hate the Yankees but Jeter was always a class act and the best of his era. But this was not surprising at all, he has been terrible for the past 3 years or so and the injuries haven't helped him at all and keep piling up. I hope the Yanks are terrible this year but he goes out with a bang

.313 BA and a Silver Slugger award in 2012 is not what I'd call terrible. He's been diminishing as anyone would with age, but it hasn't been an embarrassment or chasm.

It wasn't 'terrible', though. Still pretty good for an everyday shortstop at that age...if there ever were.

It's been possible for some time that this might be Jeter's last season, yet hearing the new made official today just really hits me. Almost as if I was denying it happening. It'll be a great farewell tour for him this season. I sure hope he goes out on a great season.

At least Jeter doesn't have to be beaten down with "is this going to be your last year?" questions all season.

He was declining the 2 years prior. That fact that he only played 17 games last year hid the fact that he was awful when he played.

I imagine if he winds up having a pretty good season how often he'll be asked if he might come back next year instead. None the less I'm hoping for Jeter to have a good season to go out on top and on his own terms.

Then had a very good year, then got injured in the playoffs.

He never fully healed. It didn't hide the obvious limitations of that unhealed injury.

I didn't say he wasn't declining...as anyone would at his age without the help of PED's. But to somehow imply that he was 'terrible' or awful and just hanging around out of reverence with no production is wrong. No one would expect him to be what he was in his 20's. He's leaving at the right time.

Bad news for starting pitchers Kris Medlen (Braves) & Jarrod Parker (A's) ; both pitchers require Tommy John surgery.

What happened to the baseball discussion? This used to be a booming thread back in the day. Is it just lack of people posting?

I joined the thread to get back into the swing of things about what's going on around the world of baseball, I forget I'm even subscribed with the lack of posting that goes on.

Hopefully it'll pick up within a week or so seeing as the season is so close.

Maybe becayse we don't even have a 2014 Thread. Someone should start a new one, along the lines of how this one started.

He's a great player but they are going to regret that contract when he's 35-36.

They already know he has about 3-5 more years at his current level, so they'll try to win as much as possible until he reaches the back half of the contract and starts to decline.

The weird thing is why they would offer such a contract now when he has two more years to go.

the way salaries in baseball are going, it may be a bargain when all is said and done.

I cant even imagine what Trout is going to get in his next contract.

Jeter needs just 4 more hits to pass Paul Militor for 8th on the all-time hit list. If Jeter can stay healthy this year, I think he can get to Carl Yastrzemski for 6th.
