MLB  > General MLB  > Is Kershaw worthy of the $31 million a year he will now get from the Dodgers?
January 23, 2014, 10:42 AM
From the Roundtable:
I am going to start this answer with a caveat; NO PLAYER in ANY sport is worth $31 million dollars per year. I understand the greed that flows in all of Professional sports but I don???t agree that if the players don???t get more the owners do. Why not allow the FANS to enjoy their sport more WITHOUT paying exorbitant prices at the gates, at the kiosks, at the snack bars, etc.?

AND, once again, I will point out that ALL teams in MLB are not created equal when it comes to equal opportunity to field a competitive team year in and year out. When large market teams such as the Dodgers give Kershaw $31 million a year, what happens when the Kansas City Royals develop the next Clayton Kershaw and he reaches arbitration or first year Free Agency? He moves on to another team due to the Royals not being able to match the Yankees or Dodgers.
