Not bad for someone his age. A wife, a kid and millions of dollars coming his way. Couldn't be happier I'd think.

A Cy Young award and a ring over the next seven years could only make him feel better.

And a clean bill of health OBVIOUSLY.
It's gone.

Back to back offseasons where we've locked down a potential ace.

Danks and Sale could anchor us for years to come so yes this is very exciting.

Now hopefully our offense clicks and then we might just be onto something.

I am fine with the deal, but I don't think it's an under the market price. It's a trade-off between security for Sale via the long-term nature of the deal, but that equals greater risk for the Sox. The lower annual salary for Sale, reduces the Sox' risk. Plenty of players have flamed out after a year or 2. So to sign those players long-term, you pay lower per year.

Excellent deal for both sides. The Sox are on the hook for 32M guaranteed. That is less than two years of a Mark Buehrle. They have him for up to seven years when he will turn 30 years old. This means they might have him for the prime of his career. He gets more money than he would have if he rejected the deal and stuck with one year contracts until he was arb eligible.

I'm sure someone else already said this, but it's a win-win for the Sox and Sale. Sale guarantees himself a payday and at worst he will be underpaid for a few seasons, no big deal.

As far as the Sox are concerned, best case they lock up a premier starter for cheap. Worst case they aren't on the tab for too much per year if Sale's health goes south.
