Billionaire Steve Cohen succumbed to my heavy pressure on twitter yesterday where I had pointed out he hadn’t really done too much – and to shut me up has extended Francisco Lindor for ten years and $341,000,000.
Media Goon spent the night camped out at Modell’s and will be the first one in the store this morning to buy jerseys.
The New York Post reports, “ncluding this year’s salary, in his last season of arbitration eligibility, Lindor will receive $362.3 million over 11 years, but deferrals will likely lower the present-day value. The $341 million is $1 million more than Fernando Tatis Jr. received this offseason in his 14-year deal from the Padres. Lindor’s deal includes a $21 million signing bonus and a partial no-trade clause. Lindor will get $32 million annually in each of the 10 seasons and $5 million each year deferred to 2032-41.” which means will be wishing each other Happy Lindor Day into the forties when it turns out this deal is a busy.
