Hello and happy Thursday.

The San Francisco Giants started Spring Training on Wednesday. And as they did, they were hit with some news that one of the division’s superstars will be sticking around for a long, long time.

Yes, news broke on Wednesday that the San Diego Padres were signing phenom Fernando Tatis Jr. to a 14-year extension, getting out ahead of things long before the 22 year old hits free agency.

Anything can happen of course, but it sure looks like Tatis is primed to torment the Giants for many, many, many years to come.

Now excuse me while I try not to think about how old I’ll be in 14 years.
