    Insane money. Good luck getting that much value out of it.

    I know I'm about 6 weeks late in replying, but has it not be worked out, that it's actually a steal for the Dodgers.

    He's going to easily pay for himself with Japanese advertisers, and additional fans

    It's alot of pressure now on him. Do I think hes worth the money personally? Yes but will the fans turn on him and will be expected of too much? Yes

    The money mostly comes after the 10 years? It's back-loaded so he earns $2m/year (imagine...)

    then gets the rest in 10 years, when, presumably, it's worth less and costs the Dodgers less, future money always cheaper than present money.
