In the major league free agent market, where super-large contracts that guarantee up to 40 years of age are poured out, there is a clear distinction between good contracts and bad contracts. When we asked high-ranking officials in the major leagues what contracts were good in this free agent market, 18 answers came out. Among them, the contract with the most votes is…

It was a contract to return to the Minnesota Twins for Carlos Correa, who had a lot of talk and a lot of trouble. said on the 9th (Korean time) about this free agency market, “In Stove League this year, a huge amount of money exceeding $ 3.8 billion was exchanged. I know who has the biggest annual average, but what about the value decision makers think?”

Here, Correa and Minnesota’s 6+4 year, $270 million contract received the top three picks. Also, Zack Eflin’s three-year, $40 million contract with the Tampa Bay Rays also got three votes.

The most talked-about메이저놀이터 contract was also Correa’s stay in Minnesota. Correa agreed to a 13-year, $350 million contract with San Francisco, but failed to sign due to medical problems. The Mets, aiming for this gap, agreed to a 12-year, $315 million contract, but this contract was also canceled due to the results of the medical test. The result is Minnesota’s six-year, $200 million + four-year, $70 million contract.

The reason why the club’s high-ranking officials envy Minnesota is that the burden of long-term contracts is small. While Philadelphia and San Diego are burdened with a long-term contract of more than 10 years by signing a shortstop, Minnesota has relatively few such concerns.

According to, an American League team general manager said, “I don’t know about medical problems,” but “I thought it was ridiculous to acquire such a player with only a six-year offer.” “Apart from the risk of injury, Minnesota seems to have made a good impression during the year with Correa,” said an anonymous National League team general manager.

Meanwhile, in addition to the Correa and Eflin contracts that received 3 votes, 3 contracts were selected by more than 2 players. Toronto’s acquisition of Brandon Belt, the Yankees’ contract renewal with Aaron Judge, and the Yankees’ acquisition of Carlos Rodon were cited as ‘good choices’.
