If you read Keith Law on ESPN.com, it would appear he likes no contract or trade. He weighs in, predictably, on the Tigers’ signing today of reliever Joaquin Benoit:

It’s an absolutely brutal contract, with a very low probability of yielding even a zero ROI (meaning they get just what they paid for — never mind coming out ahead).

With all of Detroit’s roster issues, the 8th inning was just not the place to spend this money, and no middle reliever merits a three-year contract.

What do you think?
