Cubs lock up Anthony Rizzo to a potentially nine-year contract, in a deal that makes no sense whatsoever for the team.
Yeah, I saw that... first question that came to my mind was.. why? At least the last two years are team options. Like the Castro long term contract, this really seems like a gamble with a player who hasn't yet demonstrated he can consistently perform at the major league level. Both strike me as lite versions of the Soriano contract.
