Re: Anthony Rizzo Signs 7 Year, $41 Million Deal
Honestly, if I'm the Cubs, I don't make this offer.
Left handed firstbaseman with a nice bat are pretty easy to find. I don't see anything special about Rizzo, or any need to commit any money toward him. I'd rather ride him during his cheap years, and if he becomes too expensive after that, I'd be confident I could find a suitable, affordable replacement.
