3 years and 52 Million. Wow! Slightly topping Chapman’s AAV.
I am happy for Wade.
Always thought he was the key guy in the HDH bullpen, a truly dedicated professional……..and from what I have read or heard very generous mentoring other Royal’s pitchers.
That said though, contract seems like pretty risky from the Roackies perspective.
Getting older and going to pitch half of his games in Colorado…what could go wrong here? However, if anyone is going to throw a sub 2.5 ERA there, he would be my guess. He won’t go down in history the same way Mariano Rivera did, but he’s easily been one of the greatest relievers of this decade.
2015 GDT record: 5-1
