It’s all about the money says Clayton Kershaw
Recently the Dodgers avoided arbitration with LHP Clayton Kershaw by agreeing to a seven-year, $215 million contract. At the press conference Kershaw stated that the most important factor in the new contract was the money. “Staying a Dodger, championship rings, fans and all that other stuff that guys sign for is nice but for me it was all about the money. I figure I can buy whoever else I need” stated Kershaw. Dodger ownership was also ecstatic with the deal locking up the young star for years. They didn’t seem concerned with the big payout stating a raise in ticket and concession prices will take care of everything and ensure that none of the money is coming out of their pocket.
