What your thoughts on the Phillies signing Jake Arrieta for 3 years and $75 million?
I say now I wouldn't be surprised now that he knows he is on a team that he still doesn't do as well as when he was on the Cubs.

Does he deserve this much? What do you think?

They clearly overpaid for Arrieta.

Not sure how Arrieta got so lucky...Lynn and Moustakas had to settle for subpar deals and yet he gets a solid deal from PHI.

Wow, interesting move. I missed the headline somehow during a hectic day at work. I agree that he probably won't do as well as he did on the Cubs, so yeah this is a good deal for him. Overpaid, for sure. I'm sure this will get a lot of buzz among Philadelphia fans though.

It probably a move in which they'll wanna trade Arrieta although they did give him 3 years. The Phils aren't ready to win yet and are probably a few years off still.

A lot of what I've read points to the Phillies being big spenders next offseason, when there will be a stronger free agent class. Showing some improvement this year might make Philadelphia a more attractive landing spot for other free agents.
