I love this deal. I'll take the 12 year deal. If he flops (there is no idication of that) so be it. It's not like he is getting 10 million per year.
yeah he is, and he is finally turning into what he was supposed to be, But i have to agree with bronx on this one, i think its too long too soon, with too much unproven. Its not just one good year as he sayd cuz he was putting up these kinds of numbers the last half of last year , but still, not even 1 full complete season and hes gets a contract like that.
