Kershaw lands 7 years and $215 million

The*Los Angeles Dodgers*and*Clayton Kershaw*have agreed on a seven-year, $215 million deal, sources with knowledge of the situation said.

Kershaw has an out clause after five years.

It is the richest deal for a pitcher in Major League Baseball history, eclipsing the seven-year, $180 million contract Detroit gave*Justin Verlander*last winter, and his average annual salary of $30.7 million is the highest ever for any baseball player.

The 25-year-old Kershaw has won two of the last three National League Cy Young Awards, as well as a Roberto Clemente award for his charitable work.

Kershaw and his wife, Ellen, founded an orphanage in the African nation of Zambia called Hope's Home that they visit every offseason. They co-wrote a book about their experiences last winter titled, "Arise: Live Out Your Faith and Dreams on Whatever Field You Find Yourself."

Kershaw went 16-9 with a 1.83 ERA and 232 strikeouts last season, his sixth with the Dodgers. The left-hander has a 2.60 career ERA and recorded at least 212 strikeouts in each of the past four seasons.

They already had a multi-billion dollar deal with Time Warner.

Owner should save that money for coke, hookers and cars.

I don't think you understand what I am saying.

No one deserves that much money for playing sports.

Money is just going to the ownership otherwise.

Would rather see the players get a big piece of it than just see the owners pocket it all.

Royals team salary number is up to 90+ million now. They are in about the middle of the league.

Butler,Moose and Hosmer just aren't producing enough


If they could hit then the Royals would be heading for the playoffs.

I will NEVER get why fans hate players for making money, but don't care if owners make a shitload of the money. Most owners who tell you they can't afford to put more money into their team are lying out their ass. The reason for low payroll teams is because of cheapskate owners a lot more than player salaries.

I thought it was comical a few years ago when the NFL owners were crying about not having enough money to give players raises then flat out refused to open up their financials for scrutiny.

What I meant was if I was the owner (which I never will be) I would pocket the money.
