That is possibly the strangest signing I have ever seen, relative to the market conditions at the time.

Also, is there a typo with that buyout option? A $15MM buyout of a $15MM option? I feel like a decimal is missing there.
No. The buyout would be paid out over 10 years, but it is $15 million, the same as the option.

That is not going to go well. I applaud them spending money, but wow that seems like a lot of money for an older closer.

No [expletive].

Still only ranks as the second craziest thing the White Sox have done this offseason.

Mets signed 1B/OF Jose Martinez to a one-year split contract.

The deal will pay him $1 million, with another $500,000 in available incentives, if he is able to crack the Mets' major league roster. Martinez was a disaster down the stretch last season with the Cubs and is really poor defensively, but he slashed .298/.363/.458 in 1,288 plate appearances with the Cardinals between 2016-2019. The 32-year-old can be a DH option in Queens if that rule sticks around in the National League.
