Wander's record-setting contract: 11 years/$182M guaranteed, plus an option and incentives. Wow.
https://www.nbcsportsedge.com/article/baseball-daily-dose/rays-agree-record-deal-wander-franco

As I mentioned elsewhere, I'd have sought an 8-year deal instead, to give him a better shot at a 10 year, $400M deal in his late 20s. I think there's a decent chance he's leaving a ton of money on the table, but... $182M IS a ton of money. Hard to pass that up.

I haven't seen whether there's any no trade protection or how backloaded the deal is. How many years until the Rays deal him?
