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.
