Jayson Werth obtained a seven-year, $126MM contract after hitting .296/.388/.532 with 27 home runs and 82 walks in his age-31 season. Lozano and Swisher are expected to aim big and compare Swisher, now in his age-31 season, to Werth in the hopes of matching his $126MM deal. It would only take one unexpectedly aggressive MLB owner for Swisher to obtain $100MM so it makes sense to be aggressive, but a nine-figure contract seems unlikely.
Swisher has been amazingly consistent in his career, but is he worth $100M. I just can't see it.
Regardless, Choo's management team will be keeping close tabs on that contract as a starting place for negotiations going forward.
