Another stupid team bidding against themselves, this one even much dumber when the guy is not a FA.
The market is established by other pitchers. Going by AAV, after Kershaw, the highest paid active SP under contract are:
- Justin Verlander, $25,714,286
- Felix Hernandez, $25,000,000
- Zack Greinke, $24,500,000
- C.C. Sabathia, $24,400,000
- Cliff Lee, $24,00,000
- Cole Hamels, $24,000,000
It doesn't look at all unreasonable to think Kershaw is more valuable than anyone on that list.
