Rangers sign Adrian Beltre to 6-yr/$96M deal

Awful.

Quote:
The Texas Rangers and Adrian Beltre have agreed to a contract that could pay the free agent third baseman $96 million over six years.

"We all know that the Rangers have a really good team. I want to win," Beltre said Wednesday. "The team is willing to do whatever it takes to get to the next step. That's one of the factors to make my decision to come here easier."

Beltre gets $14 million this year; $15 million in 2012; $16 million in 2013; $17 million in 2014; $18 million in 2015; and $16 million in 2016. Only five years and $80 million of the contract are guaranteed. The Rangers can void the final season if Beltre fails to have either 1,200 plate appearances in 2014 and 2015 combined, or 600 in 2015.

I really don't understand how baseball teams can come up with a hundred million dollars for a guy like this...Beltre has to be getting pretty old too.

Bad contract, but he'll probably have more success there than in SAFECO.

This is almost as bad as the Jayson Werth contract. I know Texas was desperate to make a splash, but this isn't the way to do it. They should've done more to get Garza.

projected call up sometime in 2012. Probably late. But it's pretty much all I can look forward to. Sigh.

Re: Rangers sign Adrian Beltre to 6-yr/$96M deal

How on earth does a 31 year old who's driven in 100 runs twice, hit .300 twice, hit 28+ homeruns twice -- ALL of which were in his two major contract years, out of a 12 year career -- get a 6 year, $96 million deal? Meanwhile the Rockies lock up Carlos Gonzalez, a 25 year old 5 tool player who hits .336/.376/.598 with 34 HR, 117 RBI, 111 runs and 26 SB in his first full season (with Gold Glove defense) for 7 years, $80 million?
