    Hopefully this gives hope to other small-market clubs that they can keep superstars around if they're handled right (cough...Pirates...cough).

    Great player, but extending that far into the future seems to me like an unwarranted risk. Odds are unlikely Braun puts up numbers that will warrant more than $21 million a year, and the injury risk is very real over that long a contract.

    Only Pujols has put up the numbers Braun has in the first few of years of their careers. If there's a player you risk this on, it's Braun.

    As phenomenal as guys like Braun and Tulo are, I think the risk far outweighs the reward on behalf of the clubs. Especially for mid-range clubs like MIL and COL where a contract of that size gone horribly awry could cripple payroll for the better part of a decade.

    While I agree, these clubs have to pay essentially over market value in years in order to keep the players in the "smaller" markets. Are Braun and Tulo two of the best in the game, yes. Do I think Braun will still be in 7-9 years, idk. But it was necessary to keep him

    I like the deal, but who knows what it will look like in 2020. He's a rare talent and I'm glad he will be in Milwaukee for the next 10 years.

    I'm a little confused on why we're comparing Tulo and Braun. Tulo isn't in Braun's offensive class thus far and HAS been injured.

    Are you being serious about Tulo not being in Brauns class? i would have to say even hurt, Tulo is in the same class.

    I'm not saying that Tulo doesn't have the talent to get there. He will also probably be there in a year. But until he drives in 100, has 200 hits, and frankly averages more than 600AB's (heck, 500!) for two straight seasons then no, he isn't. He's missed significant time twice due to injury while Braun has averaged 600+ AB's the past four seasons. If this is about risk, then no....Tulo is not in Braun's class yet as a safe investment for their respective clubs.

    Once again you shift the debate when you're called on it. I really like Ryan Braun as you can see in my bucket but to say Tulo isnt in his offensive class is not correct. Braun is the smarter risk but keep the debate there because you cant really win based on ALL AROUND numbers.
