Ryan Zimmerman signs contract extension

ESPN reports that Ryan Zimmerman signed a deal that is reportedly worth $45 million over five years.

Looks like the Nationals are following the footsteps of Tampa Bay signing Evan Longoria. Not saying that Zimmerman is in the same class as Longoria, but I like the idea of teams signing their homegrown players for multiyear contracts.
