This early of a signing makes me think national projections (MLBTR at least) for Gibson's free agent stock was probably too high, and at least in this case, Twins fans' perspective might have been more accurate.

What's everyone's predictions? I'll go with 1 year at $8M with a $10M option for 2021.

But it is the Rangers, they might have done something wacky like 3/36M.


3 years for 30 million, so your prediction was pretty close. More than I would pay. Gibby will be 35 when the contract is done?

Ha, well I guess my wacky prediction was similar, not my sensible prediction.

 

Which I suppose makes my prediction nonsense-ible?

 

Anyway, good for Kyle.

Also, this deal looks about as foolish as the Lynn deal last year. If Gibson follows in the footsteps of Mike Minor and Lance Lynn their pitching coach, Julio Rangel, is going to start getting looked at as the next new pitcher whisperer.

Crazy. I thought he wouldn't get signed until February or March. Maybe that was his fear too and jumped at this opportunity.

Good for him. Glad it wasn't the Twins investing another 3 guaranteed years for him.

Good for Gibby, and he gets to go to the new Globe Life, instead of the old cracker box.
