    This kind of makes me sick to my stomach. I know it's not baseball's fault, but man, what an upside-down society we live in. The pro athlete worship is mind boggling.

    It isn't worship, it is simply market economics. Tens of millions of people consume a product that is produced by a few hundred. Those few hundred will be highly compensated for it.

    Gerritt Cole

    9 years, $324M.

    Wow. The Dodgers offered him $300M, the Angels weren't willing to hit the $300M mark. Per Buster Olney, the Yankees simply said "you aren't leaving NYC without signing this contract" and kept on increasing their offer.

    Edit:

    Cole has a player opt out option after the 5th year too.

    Damn.

    Ron Guidry has held the Yankee season season strikeout record since 1978 with 248.

    If Cole is healthy, that is going down next year.

    This actually probably cost the Nationals whatever chance they had for Rendon. Supposedly both the Dodgers and the Angels thought they were getting Cole, and now they have money burning in their pockets that they want to spend on Rendon.

    I love Rendon, but he is going to end up getting overpaid.

    I guess Babe Ruth would make 80 million a year in todays money especially if he still pitched and played the field.
