MLB: Contract Extensions of This Past Offseason

This past offseason was filled with contract extensions.

It seemed like every week, there were two or three players locked up to multi-year deals.

There are even a few more possibly in the works, as both Ian Kinsler and Cole Hamels are seeking contract extensions with their respective teams.

Kinsler's deal seems like the most likely to happen, but either one could score a huge contract in the near future.

Aside from player/manager extensions, even commissioner Bud Selig joined in the fun. He signed a two-year extension after a majority of baseball's owners were in favor of the motion. The deal is said to be worth $22 million annually with the use of his own private jet.

Not bad.

Selig will likely retire after this contract extension is up, but hey, he's said the same thing about his previous extensions.

All in all, several big-name players were locked up this winter, and their respective teams figure to reap the benefits of having their star players around for the foreseeable future.

Note: The contract extensions are listed in the order they were agreed on.
