5 years and $60M is super interesting.  obviously longer than what everyone wants, but I was thinking he'd get closer to Cutch's 3 years $50M.  I'd definitely take the extra 2 years and $10M.

12 mil per year ain't bad at all 

Quite a steal, would have loved that as an addition to a Machado deal

I hope what Middleton meant by "stupid money" was that he was going to overpay McCutchen by double, because that was stupid.

Seems like a decent deal for both sides

Wonder what all these guys have against stairs or elevators?

We've gotten lazy, who takes stairs anymore? 

Give me escalators eight days a week.

FINALLY SOMETHING HAPPENS

At first glance, this looks like a pretty darn good deal. On the surface, this definitely could hurt the arguments of Harper and Machado for record breaking contracts.

I think it is a head nod to the difficulty of the harpchado negotiations. 

Contracts have been turned on their heads the last two years as agents worked to squeeze more money out of players that performed while guaranteeing the highest possible floor on market. It's incredibly difficult to even say so and so is signed for 4 for 50, because it's like a choose your own adventure contract.

I can see why Pollock might have signed this deal.  

Same total money that most predicted for him.  Gets to play in LA.  Gets to compete for titles.  Likely won't even be able to walk by the time the extra year he has to give them comes around.

Damn, I was open to a 3/$50M deal if we landed Machado.  This is a fantastic move by the Dodgers and keeps space for a Kluber or Realmuto addition.

No doubt.  I was not his biggest fan because of injury risk, but if those are the numbers, wow, that is a bargain for his talent.

Obviously great price here, but this should 100% gurantee Dodgers won't be in play for Harper so that's good as expected.

God this is so stupid. People type on their phones, or in a hurry, and autocorrect is everywhere.

I agree, it's been mentioned so many times you would think people would spend the extra half a second to notice. Yet here we are. :huh

No, I'm saying pointing it out is stupid. Everyone knows who everyone is talking about, it is a pain to edit on the phone, and it quite literally changes it from what people originally typed.
