Dodgers, Clayton Kershaw agree to new, three-year, $93 million deal

LOS ANGELES Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers' ace and the face of the franchise for the last decade, agreed Friday to a new, three-year, $93 million deal to remain with Los Angeles, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Kershaw, 30, initially had until Wednesday at 9 p.m. PDT three days after Sunday's season-ending loss to the Boston Red Sox in the World Series to decide whether to opt out of the two years remaining on his contract. He and the Dodgers extended the deadline to 1 p.m. Friday.

He had two years and $65 million remaining on the seven-year, $215 million deal he signed in January 2014. It was, at the time, the richest contract for a pitcher in baseball history. Boston Red Sox left-hander David Price later surpassed the total value.

Well at least it is only for three years if that is any consolation to the amount of money being pissed away here.

Kershaw's contract comes with incentives.

I'm thinking they are based on if he can win a playoff game or not. LOL

Not sure Kershaw isn't on the sunset of his pitching career. Too much money!
