Chicago White Sox Signs Adam LaRoche For Two Years

Adam LaRoche will now be smiling all the way to the bank. The player has entered into a two year agreement worth $25 million. According to Call To The Pen, LaRoche will be pocketing $12.5 million every year during his tenure at Sox.

The star will play alongside Jose Abreu who has scooped this year’s AL Rookie of the Year Award. LaRoche was in deed worth the money because he is among the best players in the market for having recorded 340 base and 472 slugs.

On the other hand, the duration of his contract has left eyebrows raised because no one expected him to be signed for such a short period. But from another perspective, the contract is well timed because age is really catching up with LaRoche who is now 35 years.

Many people are anticipating that the contract with Sox will be his last in his career. Only time will tell. The star has been playing baseball for eleven years. In fact he has been in the Washington Nationals for about four years.

He has only been signed by four teams in the past so White Sox will be his fifth.

Though he is left handed, LaRoche hardly misses any gloves and that is why he is among the most sought after players. He is the partner that Abreu has been missing to take Sox to the next level.

The star has recorded 26 home runs this year and 92 RBI. It seems Chicago are equipping themselves in readiness for Al Central mix in the forthcoming season. They also signed in Zach Duke and so they have many chances of winning in the next season as long as they focus on consistency.

Winning is not rocket science. If Detroit Tigers were the winners in 2014 with just 90 wins, then any team can scoop the award provided they put more effort.

However, winning is not for the faint hearted because competition is very stiff. History reveals that there is no team that have won several times.

LaRoche’s contract is a wake up call to other teams that are looking to participate in AL Central. The Sox are already counting on LaRoche and Duke. When all is said and done, LaRoche will be all smiles because he so lucky to get a deal worth lots of cash for just two years.
