Buster Posey $167 Million Dollar Man

The San Francisco Giants have signed Buster Posey to a nine-year, $167 million contract, according to multiple reports.
The deal, which is the longest in franchise history, runs through the 2021 season with a team option for 2022.
There is also a full no-trade clause for the duration of the contract.

Junkies Thoughts: As a BIG time Giants fan, I love this move. We lock up a franchise player in Posey, he is young, is a great leader (2010 and 2012 World Series Champion)and has already proven he can put up MVP numbers (.336 Avg./ 24 HR / 103 RBI).The Giants also saved some money believe it or not, if the Giants would have let Posey hit the free agent market he could have easily commanded 200 million clams. Overall the Giants made the smart and right move in locking up Posey, and once again the Giants show us fans, that they are committed to continue the recent championship success. GO GIANTS!!!

  1. Hey Alonzo,
    Came across your blog when I was on MC's page. Looks like you're a Giants fan down in SoCal, have you tried graphing them when they play the Dodgers?
    Im from the Bay and it's tough getting the Giants at home games. Now that they've won 2 world series its pretty much impossible.
