I know it was as high as 160, but I'm not sure if that was over seven years.

He does have the highest average value now. Kershaw's going to surpass that soon, though.

I'm not surprised they have the highest payroll. Their rumored new TV deal is nuts (LAD would get between 240-280M per year). I expect them to have the top or close to the highest payroll in the MLB from now on.

Who cares, money is basically irrelevant to big teams like the Dodgers.

Who's his agent, is it Boras?

$24.5 mil per season for a pitcher is an insane amount of money.

For Greinke and his 30 games per season (if everything goes right) is waaaayyyyyyy too much of money.

The Dodgers payroll approaching $300 million yet?? I'd be surprised if they don't hit it soon.
What does Texas do now? Trade for Upton? Sign Hamilton back?

As a Dodgers fan, I ain't even mad. The NL West is becoming more and more competitive, and if LA has to be Yankees-West in terms of throwing money at big names, so be it.

It sounds crazy to say on such a big deal, but I think LA did well to keep it at 6 years. When you are just swimming in cash and there's no cap, is an extra 2-3 M per year a big deal to secure an excellent pitcher?

LA also has like 30 M of cash coming off the books after 2013 in underperforming veterans such as Lilly (13 M), Uribe (7 M), Guerrier (4.5 M), Hairston (3.75 M) and Punto (1.5 M), as well as options on Harang and Capuano which could save them another 10 M if not exercised, not too mention 2013 is the last season they pay Manny, so they'll have more flexibility a year from now to make a splash. Crazy.

Apparently they will try to add another starter for 2013 even if they can't sign the Korean. That tells me they have zero confidence Billingsley will hold up long-term and TJS is inevitable at some point.

I can see them trading for Dickey.

Dickey's price is said to be high. They asked for 2 top prospects from the Redsox for him. Maybe Texas gets desperate. I still dont think the Mets trade Dickey.

That's an outrageous amount of money for someone I don't even consider a top 10 pitcher in the game.

But when you have a ton of money and no cap, you can afford to do these type of things.

Rangers miss out on another guy they wanted. Can't say that I'm upset about it.

He is without a doubt top-20 pitcher in baseball. Borderline top-10 even but that's very debatable.
