The deal is apparently $30 million over 9 years. I think this is a great deal for the Cubs.
I’ve posted on other sites that I write for that I think Soler will be a better value than Cespedes. The A’s gave Cespedes 4 years at $36 mil, and I saw scouts compare him to Wily Mo, so far we’ve seen a better player than that comparison. But Soler is said to have 5 tools with power comparable to Giancarlo Stanton (and Stanton’s power got an 80 on the 20/80 scale). Unlike Cespedes, I don’t expect Soler to start in the majors but the Cubs have him for 9 years, 20-29. And if Soler is a bust, his 9 years cost about the same as two years of Alfonso Soriano. Great for the Cubs.
