SF Giants Rumors: Jerry Crasnick Chimes In On Cain’s Contract

Posted on April 5th, 2012 by admin in SF Giants Rumors

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com tells SF Giants Rumors that he thinks Matt Cain got a great deal for himself (5/yr extension, $112.5 million on top of the $15 million he gets this year). Crasnick pointed out that Jered Weaver recently signed a 5-year, $85 million deal with the Angels.
“Cain probably could have gotten a 6 or even a 7 year deal on the open market. But when you look at the average annual value of the contract, that wasn’t much of a sacrifice on his part,” says Crasnick.

However, Crasnick does wonder about the long-term ramifications for Tim Lincecum and the team payroll.

He also brings up a very good question, and I will let you guys answer it! Be sure to leave a comment with your thoughts!

“How many contracts of this magnitude can they afford to give out?”
