The big signings are coming hot and heavy now. The Phillies signed Trea Turner to an 11-year, $300 million contract. Trea will be 41 in the last season of the contract.
Ben Clemens figured him to get a 9-year contract for $288 million., so he was in the ballpark. A little short on years, a little heavy on average yearly pay.
Apparently, he has a full no-trade clause too. I don’t know that I’d want to have a middle infielder signed for 11 years. But then, he won’t be a middle infielder for all those years.
He will be great to have for at least half of that contract. But then, if MLB revenues continue to climb the way they are, $27.3 million a season won’t be a ton of money by the end of the deal.
Would you be happy if the Jays signed Turner to that contract?

Yes, he’s a great player
No, no one should get an 11 year contract.
