It was a great week for the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and fans as Clayton Kershaw finally agreed on a seven-year, $215 million contract. After another Cy Young season, Kershaw received the richest contract for a starting pitcher in major league baseball history and will look to lead the Dodgers to the World Series.
While the Dodgers have secured Kershaw for the next seven seasons, all the attention now is on signing Japaneses pitcher Masahiro Tanaka. GM Ned Colletti has spoken to Tanaka’s agent close to everday this week and intends to do so until Friday’s 2 p.m. deadline.
