    Do you really need to be old to understand what jumping the shark means?

    The deal is only for $126M plus incentives. Thats an AAV of $21M, very good deal for the Cubs.

    Opt out after two years though, apparently.

    Even better. If he pitches enough to Opt out, Cubs just got a frontline pitcher who will like end up in the 8 WAR range for two years, only $42M.

    I have a feeling Darvish could have gotten similar packages from other teams, but choose Chicago.

    The opt out is not better for the Cubs

    Yeah I don't know why fans think opt outs are good for a team. Sure if a player opts out after 2-3 years than it mitigates the risk of a longer deal, but if Darvish blows his arm out after a year, he's not opting out, and if he pitches so well that the contract is surplus value, then he is opting out, so I don't see where the Cubs benefit.

    Still a good deal for Darvish, though.
