Maybe it's just me but I would kind of like the White Sox to wait on this until he has another healthy season under his belt. Yes, I know that that would make the price go up but I'd want to make absolutely certain that he can stay healthy and that 2012 wasn't a fluke.

I agree.

If there's anything I think the current ownership has done right over their tenure is to not sink too much money long term into pitchers. They've been famously been burnt a couple times and I think they've learned their lesson. Pitchers, while if they stay healthy can be a great deal if you invest long term early. But if they break down they can really hamstring your franchise for a long, long time.

Same here. Guy has had one great full season. There's a long history of guys who have done that, let's see him put back to back ones together first.

The original report of 3 years guaranteed at $30 M had me a little upset, I felt that was a bit of an overpay even if it did come with two option years, but a guaranteed 5 years, $32.5 M with 2 potential option years worth a total of $25 M tacked on at the end? Bravo, Rick. BRA-****ING-O.



Yearly salary breakdown from SSS:

2013 - $850 K
2014 - $3.5 M
2015 - $6 M
2016 - $9.15
2017 - $12 M
2018 - $12.5 M OPTION
2019 - $13.5 M OPTION

WOW!

Yes. Not sure if those are team, player, mutual, or vesting options.

Great deal for the Sox at today's prices. Excellent management decision.

So, Sale could be here another seven years and, at his highest contract point in the last year of the deal, he will still be making one million dollars less than what Peavy is making this year. That's amazing.

I'm sure someone else already said this, but it's a win-win for the Sox and Sale. Sale guarantees himself a payday and at worst he will be underpaid for a few seasons, no big deal.

As far as the Sox are concerned, best case they lock up a premier starter for cheap. Worst case they aren't on the tab for too much per year if Sale's health goes south.
