As a Dodger fan who has seen his team go 30 years without a World Series title, and fall short in the series twice in a row now...I feel like I’d be willing to completely toss away a number of seasons in exchange for a title, at this point.this contract will never be worth it. 13 years?
Like, if we win it all next year...they’ll have a solid 5 year grace period where I won’t question anything or get mad at anything.
However, I’m not sure that this is the best route to a title. You can have the best player in the league on your team and still be a nonfactor. Very unlikely this deal works out IMO. And I’m glad the Dodgers didn’t give him that kind of deal.
