No Surprise: Keith Law Hates Benoit Deal
Posted on November 17, 2010
If you read Keith Law on ESPN.com, it would appear he likes no contract or trade. He weighs in, predictably, on the Tigers’ signing today of reliever Joaquin Benoit:
It’s an absolutely brutal contract, with a very low probability of yielding even a zero ROI (meaning they get just what they paid for — never mind coming out ahead).
With all of Detroit’s roster issues, the 8th inning was just not the place to spend this money, and no middle reliever merits a three-year contract.
What do you think?
