Poll: The Giancarlo Stanton contract

New, 62 comments

Giancarlo Stanton signed a record-sized contract...does it make sense for both parties?

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Things are quiet in Rangerland while we wait to hear what happens with 40 man additions/drops later today...

So I thought I'd throw up a poll on the Giancarlo Stanton contract.

The deal is a 13 years, $325 million deal, though it can be looked at as a 6 year deal with a 7 year player option.  The salaries, by year:

2015 -- $6.5M

2016 -- $9M

2017 -- $14.5M

2018 -- $25M

2019 -- $26M

2020 -- $26M

Stanton may opt out after 2020

2021 -- $29M

2022 -- $29M

2023 -- $32M

2024 -- $32M

2025 -- $32M

2026 -- $29M

2027 -- $25M

2028 -- $25M club option/$10M buyout

There's also a no-trade clause in place for Stanton.

So given this, what do you think about this?  Good deal for Stanton?  Good deal for Miami?  Good deal for both?  Neither?
