Default Buster Posey and Justin Verlander Get a Huge Pay Day

Posey gets a 9 year deal worth $167 million. Verlander gets an extension through 2020 that could be worth $202 million. Ridiculous.

I plead ignorance but these huge contracts are typically back loaded right? There is no way a team would be obilgated to that kind of money in the front end or spread out through the duration would they?

Yeah they progressively get more expensive as the years pass. Last year A-Rod made nearly $30,000,000 on his big deal. If it was spread evenly he would have made about $2,000,000 less

Not sure about these but most big contracts are backloaded.

Justin Upton's contract has 3 years/38 million left on it and he's only making $8 million this year. McCann's is the same way.

Speaking of McCann, he's gone. With the deals Mauer, Molina, and Posey have gotten, he's going to get more money that Atlanta has to offer

@darrenrovell: Justin Verlander's new contract will pay him about $756,000 per start or $6,900 per pitch.

That's one way to avoid arbitration with Posey...

Although, I have a feeling he will be worth every penny of that to the Giants.

Not so sure Verlander will live up to that contract though. He's been a workhorse his whole career and going into his 30s, you have to think he may start to become less effective with each year. I have a feeling that part of it is rewarding him for the 4 years or so where he could be considered vastly underpaid when looking at his performance.
