Why we already have a SS in TA. Baez wasn’t going to move to 2B.

Money talks, of course he would

7 years $140 mill confirmed.

That’s not the terrible overpay I was hoping for.

his demands of 200 mil sure fell flat. But the value on this contract is pretty solid tbh. Let's hope his high K rates get even worse...because the Tigers are going to be a thorn in the window's side with their moves and  young pitching.

I made a mistake. The article said “expected” so not quite confirmed yet. I was also thinking it would be in the $25-30 mill range.

But still only 35 at the end.  Compare to the Cano, Miggy and Pujols deals.

But none of those guys were expected to keep their legs under them and play up to the defensive demands of shortstop.

Sure, Baez can move to 2B in a few years if they replace him with a younger SS, but you still can't rely on burying his aging legs at DH when he will never be the hitter Pujols or Miggy are/were.

Yeah, a $20M AAV isn’t going to hamper their yearly spending even over 7 years the way $25-30M would.  If $140M isn’t yet confirmed I still have hope.

It was a 6 year deal when I checked in here at home.  I get to the office and it is a 7 year deal.  I'll be back at lunch for the details on the 9 year deal.

Compare Baez to 3 HOF's, 2 of which are generational talents? Why?

Probably referring to the amount of money those guys were owed when they were older than Baez will be at the end of this contract.  However, talent-wise there's no comparison.

The talent/production gap makes it a really silly comparison.

Hmm let's see... if Javier Baez goes 6/140, can we get Trevor Story for 6/140? how about 7/160?

Wanted absolutely nothing to do with Javy Baez so am happy the Tigers signed him. Think he's a flawed player who will age very very poorly due to those flaws. He is the type of player who once he loses an inkling of bat speed will lose his entire offensive game. 

Don't think going to Comerica is that big of a deal, but I just don't think his offense ages well at all.

One thing that I have seen this offseason.  Lots of long-term deals are being signed here.  This is going to put the sox into a very uncomfortable position.  I don't know if they have the appetite for these longer-term deals beyond 4 years.

Yup.  Tigers were always going to sign a big SS.  I'm just glad it's the most flawed one they chose.

The @MLB instagram account shoving his routine plays with a lot of pastry down people’s throats helped give Baez a lot more $ than he deserves. 

Wow
