Forbes has an article stating the Red Sox are close to extending Sale for 7 years at $245 million.
Holy poop. Lester was cheap
Five years, 150 million.
“According to multiple major league sources, the Red Sox and Sale have agreed to a five-year, $145 million extension that will run from 2020-24. The contract includes an opt-out for the pitcher after 2022 and deferrals that will lower the average annual value of the deal between 2020 and 2024. Sale, according to a major league source, passed his physical on Friday night.”
Hell yeah. I’m watching the live press conference right now.
