    If these players were Free Agents this past off-season, what would their contract be

    And from whom?

    Feel free to pick and choose from all of the below, or do them all, or pick different players, etc.


    Albert Pujols -
    Prince Fielder -
    Alex Rodriguez -
    CC Sabathia -
    Jose Baustista -
    Derek Jeter -
    Cole Hamels -
    Justin Verlander -
    Felix Hernandez -
    Clayton Kershaw -
    Chris Davis -
    Adrian Beltre -
    Matt Holliday -
    Ryan Braun -
    Andrew McCutchen -
    Miguel Cabrera -
    Ryan Howard -
    Elvis Andrus -
    Troy Tulowitzki -
    Jose Reyes -



    I'm only selecting players who have seen 6 years of service time OR have a long term MLB contract that currently extends them past 6 years (like Cutch). The reason is because guys like Machado, Boagerts, Trout, Harper etc would get crazy different contracts, and it's difficult to properly project them.

    Someone like Pujols for example, I can't see getting better than 5/75 at this point now.

    While Andrew McCutchen could possibly get something like 7/190

    Assuming we are talking about the open market and not what we would personally give them, then it would be something like this.

    Albert Pujols - 5/75 34 years old with declining power, even this deal would be on past performance.

    Prince Fielder - 7/160 Considering Ellsbury got 7/153 at 30 with his injury history, Prince is only 29 and primed for a bounce back season.

    Alex Rodriguez - 1/800,000 Teams would feel like they are "taking a chance on him" so he would be offered a minor league contract.

    CC Sabathia - 1/16 Santana is 31 and got 1/14, Burnett is 37 and got 1/17, Colon is 40 and got 2/20. This offseason was a bad one for pitchers, and Sabathia would have suffered with these guys given his age.

    Jose Baustista - 4/60 Despite being a year younger than Pujols, this all-around decline seems to be happening a lot faster (cough steroids).

    Derek Jeter - 1/10-15 Considering he already said he wanted to retire, someone would overpay for the publicity of Jeter's farewell tour.

    Cole Hamels - 6/140 Since he is considered by many to be a top 10 starter in the league at the age of 30, he still would have cashed in despite the poor offseason for pitchers. This deal would be very similar to the extension he signed in 2012 (6/144) on the open market.

    Justin Verlander - 6/150 Same situation as Hamels, however based on name value he'd get a little more. The deal he signed last year was 7/180, so this seems about right after a down year.

    Felix Hernandez - 7/175 Given the fact that he's still only 27 and this was the deal that he signed last year, I see no reason why he wouldn't get the same thing.

    Clayton Kershaw - 7/180 The actual contract he signed in the offseason, not sure why he's on here.

    Chris Davis - 8/200 Cano is 31 and got 10/240, so a guy who just hit 53 HR in the prime of his career at 28 would probably command something similar. However, I bumped the number down considering he wouldn't get 10 years from anyone but the Mariners.

    Adrian Beltre - 3/70 34 years old but still one of the best in the game with surprisingly improving health in Texas.

    Matt Holliday - 5/75 Also 34, however his situation is a little different than Beltre's because he would not cash in as much. I would be more inclined to think that he would take one last contract, and many teams would be fine giving him this considering he will probably hit .300 for at least the next 3 years.

    Ryan Braun - 3/57 This is one is just a flat out guess, he's only 30 however teams would be wary about a rapid steroid decline. No idea what kind of market would develop for him.

    Andrew McCutchen - 8/215 A year younger than Chris Davis and a much more complete player. His prime would command almost 27 mil per on the open market. This is again assuming that someone doesn't get reckless and offer him 10 years.

    Miguel Cabrera - 10/240 And I say this only because he would have been the Mariners choice over Cano.

    Ryan Howard - 2/20 I would compare this contract a lot to Pat Burrell the year he left the Phillies for Tampa Bay. Burrell was coming off of a .250, 33 HR season and was pretty much a one trick pony since he played suspect defense and only hit for power. Burrell got 2/16 and this was in 2009, so bumping up that salary a few million since it is 5 years later this seems about right. Someone would take a chance on Howard and want him as a DH.

    I got tired of writing so I didn't bother with the last 3, however I might come back to this later lol.

    Well with Arod suspended for the whole year he'd be 0 bucks. But if he was only suspended 50 games or was granted the braun cruz treatment and just had to miss the last half of last year he'd get 3 years 50 million.

    Other than that bringback is about as close as I would guess
    Therefore he doesn't exist
    So poof...vamoose son of a b itch

    Peralta picked up 4 years after a PED suspension and he had multiple teams after him. Braun would get more than 3/57.

    Masahiro Tanaka

    Yeah, that's why I said it was a flat out guess. No idea what his market would be or if a team would overpay to get him and I don't think any of us can predict that accurately to be honest. His current contract will have him making 19 mil annually in the next few years so it was based off of that.
