Kershaw deal - $215M, 7 yrs with out after 5, per @ramonashelburne - is nearly same as deal #Dodgers almost struck with him last season.

The two sides were close on 210/7 before #Dodgers backed off. That deal also included an out after five years. Kershaw can now be FA at 30.
Well, if there is a guy who looks to be a safe bet to live up to that contract, it's Kershaw. I think these large contracts are the new normal for consistent all stars.

Go Sox!!!
