    Catastrophic injuries, such as career ending injuries, are protected with insurance

    Insurance premiums that the team would have paid regardless of if there is an opt out clause or not.

    Yeah but if Darvish craps out in the next two years as a result of lingering injuries then that's not getting covered by insurance and the Cubs are stuck with him. The opt-out is entirely in the benefit of the player, the team just kind hopes for the best.

    I have a feeling Darvish could have gotten similar packages from other teams, but choose Chicago.
    That's what I'm thinking

    I'd be shocked it several other teams wouldn't have matched that

    100k won't even cover the fees for the lawyers.

    Yeah, the arbitrator is funded by the MLB, I think.

    Ohtani, Cain, Wade Davis, plus the trades of Stanton and Yelich.

    I donít necessarily disagree, you asked for a list of big moves that didnít kickstart the free agent market.

    Darvish's a player that can continue an elite signing domino, period.

    So let's say he stays healthy the entire time.

    If he doesn't opt out, that means he pitched poorly or doesn't feel he can get what is left on his deal (or more) on the open market, so the team is stuck with an overpaid player who is not worth the contract.

    If he does opt out, that means he can get more than what is left on his deal, meaning the team is going to miss out on any additional surplus value the rest of his existing contract may have provided.

    Neither scenario benefits the team.
