Why? Money now is worth more than money later

Jesus. That’s a deal. 

I really don't get why he'd sign that. It's not Acuna and Albies bad, but it is a pretty big discount

Took a massive discount, don't get it from his end at all.

Security for the future and not having to go through all the shenanigans of arbitration on baseball. That is a process no one really seems to love...

Can't fault him at all, he wanted to be in SD.

And SD treated him well. They didn't manipulate his service time a few years ago even though they could have Kris Bryant'd him.

Who'd have thunk it - when you treat players well, they treat teams well in return.

Nowadays the deferred money is interest-free.  Bonilla’s was deferred with interest, thanks in part to Bernie Madoff, and teams are not making that same mistake again.

After taxes it is still $168 million, and he will never have to go through arbitration or a contract negotiation again.  He’s also going to get plenty of endorsement money as well.
