Braun signs 8-year, $45 million contract

The Brewers' Ryan Braun, last year's MLB Rookie of the Year, today signed a great, big, expensive contract that will keep him with the team through the 2015 season.

Now we have to hope Braun's next few years are more Aaron Kampman, less Antonio Freeman.

Here's what Braun said at the press conference:

"I'm extremely excited and looking forward to the future," said Braun. "I feel we have a chance to do something special for years to come."
And here's what Braun was actually thinking:

“I make more than all you guys put together.”
Well, that’s what I would’ve been thinking.
