Brewers were not optimistic about chances of Moustakas returning. Now, he goes to a division rival.

I find this oddly sad even though I wasn't fond of giving him a multi-year deal. I just liked the guy.

Good luck to him. He finally got the long term deal he was looking for.

Four years! Wow! I really like Moose, and he was great in his year + here. But there is no way I want to go to four years on him.

Good for him, though. That is exactly what he's been looking for the last two offseasons, and was shut out both times. I think other free agents are going to see what Grandal and Moose are getting, and look at the Brewers as a solid place to rebuild value.

Mike Moustakas' four-year deal with the Cincinnati Reds will be for more than $60 million, sources tell ESPN.

He is expected to play second base, as
@Ken_Rosenthal
said.
@JonHeyman
was also on the Moustakas deal.

Milwaukee will have the most one-year Free Agent contracts while David Stearns is at the helm.

The day he showed up wearing a Giannis jersey, I was all in on team Moose.

Insane amount of $/time, and to move him to full time 2b? Pass.

lol 4 years and more than $60mil? I wanted him back, but that is way too much when he has to play 3B here. Good player, underrated by many...but hard pass. Brewers may have made a mistake not getting Moustakas on a reasonable 3 year deal last offseason.

On the negative side our offense is really really bad and I really wonder how Stearns is going to make it acceptable after the loss of Moustakas/Grandal.

I love Moose ... but $64 million guaranteed? That is bonkers. That contract has the big possibility of blowing up in the Reds faces. That team continues to be a rudderless ship.

Moose, Pomeranz, and Grandal all get four year deals.

Sign Aguilar and Thames back up, and its time to party like it's 2018!

If Moose gets 64 million, what does Donaldson get?

good for him to finally get some contract security. I am ok with passing on 16mm per.

Exactly. For a second I thought that we could sign Donaldson after seeing the Moose news but he should command a lot more per year. He is 33 so idk if teams will go 4 years.

So we're back to the era of throwing ridiculous sums of money at 30+ year old free agents???

Two Things:

Donaldson is going on 34

Donaldson is a 3B, the Reds are valuing Moose as a 2B. Moustakas is obviously more valuable offensively at 2B (much more so).

Not saying Donaldson will/won't get more...just that the two are not directly comparable.
