Buster Posey and Justin Verlander could team up to buy the Royals!
At 26 years old, Buster Posey already is a two-time World Series champion and the National League’s Most Valuable Player. Now he could be a Giant for life.
Posey and the Giants agreed to a nine-year contract on Friday, one that covers his three remaining arbitration years and buys out his first five years of free agency. The deal includes an option for 2022.
Posey had previously signed a one-year, $8 million deal to avoid arbitration and wasn’t eligible to be a free agent until after the 2016 season. But the Giants have spent much of spring training quietly negotiating with Posey’s agent, Jeff Berry, in an effort to lock the franchise catcher into a long-term deal.
