I’m not a big fan of hockey anymore. Between moving the North Carolina and the strike, my interest in the Blackhawks has quickly faded. However, I did happen to notice this story the other day.
The Islanders and goalie Rick DiPietro agreed to a 15-year, $67.5 million contract, believed to be the second-longest in North American sports
Obviously, I know this is a baseball site. So, my question to you the reader is this.
If you were going to sign a current player in the major league’s to a 15 year deal at their current age, who would it be and why? Perhaps you’re of the school, like I am, that no player is worth a contract this long. I’m interested in who people see as valuable in baseball these days. Also, include the maximum dollar amount you would pay per year.
