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.
MLB.com 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 MLB.com, 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’.
