Sigh. We all knew it was coming. The good news is he will probably eat up a chunk of their budget for a long time and not be a Cy candidate for most of those years. Plus he might feel sad when he turns around and sees that scary (in a bad way) infield defense.

7 years $217 million. $31 mil per year, the most expensive per year contract ever. Tied with Miguel Cabrera. Plus an opt out (player opt out) after 3 years. Kind of glad the Jays didn't go for that deal as the team takes on all risk, with no big reward should prices go up for pitchers and he does well, outside of those first 3 years.
