SB Nation points out that Kershaw has been wheeling and dealing with the Dodgers for several days to reach an official agreement.
But the Dodgers believe they made the right decision to pay him so much money.
“He’s made as much of an impact that you can on an organization in terms of the success we’ve had, and not just on the field,” Andrew Friedman, Dodgers president of baseball operations said Thursday.
Kershaw, 31, started 26 times during the 2018 season with the Dodgers and managed a monstrous 2.73 ERA this season. Not too shabby for a left-hander.
