Tulo Gets PAID - $134 million, 7 yr. contract extension

Postby thejusman1 » Tue Nov 30, 2010 6:06 pm

According to Buster Olney of ESPN.com, Troy Tulowitzki will make $163 million guaranteed over the next 10 years.
Tulowitzki is a fantastic player, but this contract looks more unnecessary by the minute. Picking up from the remainder of his current deal, he will receive $16 million in 2014 and $20 million per season from 2015-2019. He'll make a base salary of $14 million in 2020 with an additional $6 million in escalators. The contract also includes a $14 million team option -- and $6 million in escalators -- for 2021 or a $4 million buyout. Let's hope this doesn't become an albatross for the franchise in the long-term. Nov. 30 - 1:51 pm et

Not to knock Tulo at all, but apparently the Rox learned nothing from the Helton contract...

Great, now Jeter HAS to demand more money. He's worth at least three times that much.

Just imagine what the Yankees would have offered if he hit free agency. They are offering Jeter a 3 year deal and Tulo would have been a FA in 3 years. Easily would have matched that contract.
B-Chad wrote:Pedroia's LD rate of 20% is reason to believe he'll maintain a higher BA then Cano. It should also be noted he hits more FB's then Cano, which means that even if he posts a lower HR/FB then Cano, he should come in reasonably close to Cano in HR's

Kind of makes you drool at the package they will be throwing at Carlos Gonzalez in the next year or two.
