This might be the worst contract of all time.

.263/.324/.474. 121 HR in 2600 PAs in his 5 year career with the Angels. Currently has a .666 OPS(as of 5/6). Now take into account he's on the hook for $140 million dollars over the next 5 years.


Oof.

Can't believe he got 10 years. Post-steroid era everyone falls off after 30.

Cardinals dodged a bullet here. Even at the lesser amount, they'd be really handcuffed if he were still on their roster. That said, one has to wonder if they really had any intention of signing him anyway, or if they were making an offer because they had to.

I really wonder if he's closer to 38-39 years old than 36.

But yes, disastrous contract.
