    That is really cheap for his first two arbitration years and his first two years of free agency. He probably won't put up 7 WAR again, but that's still seems like great value.

    I think he was set to make something like $4.75m this year so $6m and $9m to buy out this year and his final arbitration year seems pretty fair if not a bit generous on the Royals part. If what he did last year is the real Alex Gordon going forward though, the Royals got a steal with this contract. Pretty fair deal for both sides I'd say.

    Good for the Royals - hope they can contend this year for a playoff spot.

    Re: Alex Gordon Extension

    STOKED. 4 years is a little odd however, being that will be Hoz's first year out of arbitration, but hopefully we lock him up before that happens. This offseason we signed our C, SS, and all-star LF to long term deals. Awesome.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    2-2 for Alex with a homerun. Not bad for a signing day.

    Hosmer or Gordon? Hosmer is by far my favorite player, but Gordo is my 2nd. Both are class act guys who work hard.

    Hopefully he'll hit .300+ again. He's a fun guy to watch in the outfield as well. Won the Gold Glove for LF last year.
