    Wow this is just great. We have the best hitter in baseball till 2011.

    Good job! This is great news. For how much money a year? 12,5 m $?

      12 mil for 4 years...team option for 2011. That is great!

        I was going back and forth with someone else on another board. That person said that Ortiz' price came because Big Papi been underpaid around 2003-04 ($4.587m & $5.25m, respectively).

        Does anyone feel that the prior underpayments are the reason they gave him such a large contract? Or is it just the numbers, reward for helping them out so much (and often)?

        I'd also like to ask folks here, if they were Theo (at least let's pretend), how much would you have offered Ortiz, both in dollars and years? Where would you draw the line and say "no higher"?

        Thx.

          It's a reward for putting up numbers and being the best DH in the game. Pure and simple reward.

            I don't have an exact figure in mind, but if there's anyone I want on the team it's Ortiz. Even if he stunk, I'd still want him coming up to PH once and awhile.
