I think this is a very good deal for both sides. Freeman gets a solid contract at a good price, and the Braves got him at somewhat a bargain. $135 for a kid who hasn't even his his peak yet. I like this deal for them a lot. He's a clutch hitter, a great, upcoming run producer, and a good fielder. He's a core player in the Braves organization, and I think they made the right move signing him long term especially with all the guys who would've been arbitration players or free agents next offseason. So I really like the Freeman deal. The Heyward deal? He practically robbed them. He's overrated and now overpayed too.

I think they regret the $75,000,000 they blew on a mediocre outfielder (Melvin Upton) more than they'll regret the contract they gave to Freeman.

It's a long deal, but he's young and the AAV is very reasonable. For what his production is now it's a great deal from a team that gives horrible deals. Very good on base, and solid power, with good enough defense as well. Very underrated player, and his numbers could jump up even higher as he enters what are supposed to be his prime years.

He will have to produce at least 3 World Series rings for the Braves or bust.

You'll probably regret it too, when you can't afford to go to any more games in a few years.

Actually, if you want o hold on to a kid like Freeman today, you have to lock him up early, and how many teams can you name that don't eventually regret a long term contract? I think the Mets would think again before giving Johann Santana all that money, and do you think the Yankees would have extended ARod had they know then what they know now?
