    Hamels has allowed homers to both Pedoria and Betts.

    Edit: He's now allowed four solo homers today.

    Pretty crazy how much Porcello got...every time another pitcher signs it seems to makes Teheran's contract look better and better.

    He has had solid FIP/xFIP numbers the last couple of seasons and he is still in his prime years. I think thats a smart deal by the Red Sox. You are always going to need pitching.

    How is giving a dude 21 mil per, who has a career 4.30 ERA / 4.03 FIP / 3.87 xFIP and a K per 9 of 5 a "smart deal"?

    They are paying a #3 starter, ace money.

    Kershaw - 31 mil per year
    Max - 30 mil per year
    Lester - 25 mil per year
    Verlander - 25 mil per year
    Felix - 25 mil per year
    Grienke - 24 mil per year
    Cliff - 24 mil per year
    Cole - 24 mil per year
    CC - 24 mil per year
    Tanaka - 22 Mil per year

    Soooooooooo which one of those guys wasn't an ace when they signed their 20+ mil per year deal?

    The most recent contracts are indicative of where the market is RIGHT NOW.

    A contract signed a few years ago is what the market value was at that time. This is not difficult.

    He's getting 8 mil less than Max and Ker next year........that's not smart, that's moronic.

    Doens't matter how the contract is strcutred. Kersh/Max got AAV's of 30M. So Procelleo is getting paid 2/3 of what they are paid.
