Chen deal makes sense (in a Marlins sort of way); Parra's doesn't

The Miami Marlins' ownership hasn't earned much of our trust when it comes to long-term free agent contracts; the deals they've signed in recent years were all heavily back-loaded so that owner Jeffrey Loria wouldn't have to shell out much before the inevitable trade of the veteran for prospects. So while Wei-Yin Chen's deal with the team appears to be for five years and $80 million, given the owner's history and the opt-out for Chen after two years, it's hard to see him as a Marlin for the long haul.
