The contract is done.

$325M/13 years.  Interesting details over at mlbtraderumors.com

I've been following coverage of Stanton's contract negotiations.

The latest word is that it would be gigantic and shaped in a way that is very complex and different.

Rumors are:

13 years for $325 million

No trade clause

And after the first five seasons, there is a one time opt out.  So basically, Stanton is locked in for five seasons and then can leave if he doesn't like the contract/situation.

In an underlying piece of irony. Back in 1970 when Ken Tatum broke Paul Blair's nose with a pitch which resulted in neither player ever being quite the same again.

Tatum was eventually traded for......Conigliaro.

Two unrelated comments

a) Stanton may still hold on to the HR title this year. Keep an eye on Rizzo.

b) I grew up in the SF Bay Area where Tony C was a sports caster for a few years. That lead me to his story as a boy, and I also had a flashback to what I had read about Conigliaro's beaning.

I think the ball hit Stanton a bit lower (avoiding the eye) which is huge in his recovery opportunity.

Peter Gammons was on MLB Network today and he said it reminded him of Tony Conigliaro's beaning.

I'm very interested to understand the specifics of the rule about both of these HBPs being called swinging strikes ...

I guess I understand if/when a batter swings and gets hit on arm or hand ...

But if the way the rule is written now says that Stanton was not HPB'd, then the rule needs to be changed ... imo ... and without knowing the specifics of the wording of the rule ...

The first bench clearing had to do with Reed Johnson getting plunked on the first pitch after Stanton got hit. Can't blame McGehee and the Marlins for getting upset about that scenario. Fiers was clearly upset about the Stanton situation and Roenicke should have just removed him from the game. Apparently, McGehee was livid at the umpiring crew for calling both HBP strikes and in letting his feelings be known got tossed along with his Manager. Next inning the retaliation occurred when DeSclafini plunked Gomez which resulted in several more ejections and another discussion on the field by both teams. It's probably a good thing that Miami is moving on to Philadelphia for the weekend.

Likely out for the year with facial fractures, dental damage, and possibly a concussion. Wow.

Hope he's okay. The only "highlight" I could find wasn't very clear, but it reminded me of Andre Dawson getting his square on the face.

The story says there was bench clearing, but Fiers appeared to be distraught immediately afterwards.
