Justin, remember to stretch before racing any of your teammates.

Wow this should be a fantastic deal once confirmed. I was expecting us to have pay $50 million just for this and his arb years but this is just brilliant.

Here's to hoping Justin remains in Arizona for the rest of what should be an amazing career (touch wood).

I am stunned at the news. Never thought we would be able to get this deal done. Very happy with it. Locking up Reynolds next?
