It’s not bad but I could see rizzo looking at the deal goldschmidt got at 32 (5/130) and wanting that kind of security.

I want to keep him but think he could indeed be pretty washed up in those age 35/36/37 years though.

Outside of general inflation, Rizzo doesn't really deserve that kind of contract, because he's just not at Goldschmidt's level. I get that he might not want to hit FA at 34 (vs 32), so maybe you make it 6/110 or something like that. But Goldy was coming off a 5.1 fWAR year (after 5.2, 4.9, 7.2 the three years before that). Rizzo hasn't been above 5 since 2015, and we're potentially looking at two straight years under 4.

You’re right, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he has his eyes set on that benchmark anyway. I’m sure he’s thinking this next contract will be his last shot at a huge payday. Maybe they meet in the middle but I think he’s gonna want to get paid regardless.

I just don't see Rizzo as that kind of guy. He's got a different perspective than most because of the cancer scare and he's probably generationally wealthy already based on what he's made. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if he took a discounted deal to stay in Chicago. I'd expect either that or a total cut of ties when this deal is up.

Riz needs to get his power back. Just 2 HR in his last 47 games/46 starts, and he's lucky to have those with one having a .320 xBA and the other .080.
