The Diamondbacks are in negotiations with Paul Goldschmidt for a long term deal

Mar 19, 2013, 9:14 AM EDT

Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt isn’t arbitration-eligible until after the 2014 season and is under team control though 2017. The team, however, is interested in locking him up long term. When asked about it last month, Goldschmidt said that he’s prefer to think it over for a while.  Apparently he’s done thinking:

 

Not a bad idea to get something done if you’re the team anyway, as Goldschmidt hit .286/.359/.490 with 20 home runs, 82 RBI, 18 stolen bases and an .850 OPS and, at 25, is likely to improve upon those numbers going forward.

    This guy crushes baseballs. With the way he swings, I thought his average would be lower, but he can hit for a respectable average. Only seen him a handful of times against the Phils and came away very impressed. Smart move by the D-backs.

    This guy kills Giants,, I hope he gets run over by a rain tarp before the extension kicks in,,,,
    Lock him up, good move among a bunch of curious ones. His GibsonGrit factor must be high, beyond just being a Giant killer.
    eff him
