“Show Me The Money!” Worth it?

According to ESPN, Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers agreed to terms on a 7 year extension worth $180 million dollars and has a chance to add-on an 8th year to make it $202 million.

Yes, that is not a misprint, he is now officially the highest paid pitcher in Major League Baseball history.  There seems to be a trend here, huh?  Apparently the trend is to make every pitcher that needs a new contract the richest in history.  Just recently Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners agreed to terms on a contract worth $175 million that made him the highest paid pitcher in history.  Now to only be out done by Justin Verlander who is rolling in the green as we speak.

So is it worth it?  All this money given to one guy, I mean yes, he is arguably the best pitcher in the game, but is he worth all that money?  Let me know what you think right here.
