On Tuesday, 23-year-old Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman agreed to a contract extension believed to be worth $125 million over 8 years. Freeman finished 5th in MVP voting in 2013, hitting .319/.396/.501 with 109 RBI (numbers that make him altogether worthy of a highly lucrative extension).

Freeman’s first order of business now that he’s idiotically rich? Buy snow tires. And then take Chipper Jones out to dinner.

I think Chipper at least earned dinner from Freddie Freeman, considering that Chipper rescued Freeman from certain death in Atlanta Snowpocalypse.

Matter of fact, if I were Chipper, I’d lean on Freddie for way more than dinner.

“So Freddie, about that whole me saving your life thing. There’s this Ferrari I’ve had my eye on. Let me show you a picture…”

I’m sure Chipper’s way too big a man to hold anything over Freddie’s head for the purpose of extorting lavish gifts and other expensive favors.
