What is Pedroia going to expect for age 32? 6/$140M?
Signing Pedroia now allows the Sox to sign him through age 34-35 rather than 37-38.
The proposal has merit...for the Red Sox. Not sure if Pedroia would go for it though as it would effectively see his last big pay day at 35/36, not the 38/39 he might be expecting.
Concur. If you want Pedroia to accept only 4-years on the extension, he's probably gonna want at least $25M per.
The only way it makes sense is if Pedroia think he's going to collapse in his age 31 season and even in the highly confident group of people that make up MLB players Pedroia sticks out as a confident guy.
Even if he doesn't collapse, he'll get more money after his age 30 season than he would after an equivalent age 31 season.
