Braves get a steal on Freeman?

The Atlanta Braves this week signed Freddie Freeman to a contract extension worth $135 million over eight years. The 24-year-old first baseman made his first All-Star team last season and hit .443 with runners in scoring position (second best in the majors). However, as Keith Law notes, he hit only .219 in those situations the year before. Is this a great deal? Is Freeman elite? Vote below!
