I'm not saying it's a good contract. I'm just saying it's pretty defined what you're getting if you sign him. Texas is clearly making a short-term gamble to try and win a title. They'd already put themselves in a bad future situation by taking the Fielder contract, so it's pretty obvious they decided to go for broke. And unlike Choo, Fielder already looked like he might be starting to decline last year.
