Braun signs 8 year deal


Recommended Posts

Brewers signed outfielder Ryan Braun to an eight-year, $45 million contract.

The deal includes Braun's $455,000 salary for this season, so it's really a seven-year extension that will keep the reigning NL Rookie of the Year in Milwaukee through 2015. In handing out the largest contract in team history, the Brewers buy out Braun's first two years of free agency and keep him locked up through his age-31 season. Braun is only 152 games into his big league career, so there's plenty of risk involved for the Brewers, but if he stays healthy and productive the team will end up saving a ton of money.

Yea when I saw the thread title I thought it would be for about 70-80 million, surprised it's this low. Don't think Braun is the superstar everyone thought he he was last year, but still a very good player and like PWG says, 5.6 a year is what you pay for about a league average starting OFer.
