Seven years, $215 million: that's $30.7 million annually, with an opt out option after five years. That's the highest average annual salary EVER, and the contract is the largest ever for a pitcher. It's a smart move, according to one LA Times writer.

The guy who told A-rod to "get off his mound" and threw a perfect game on Mother's Day 2010 has required numerous surgeries on his left shoulder that he says has become "shredded".
There is nothing left in there, it's just a shredded mess. I left my arm on the mound at the Coliseum, and I'm OK with that.

Wladimir Balentien, who played 170 games over three years with the Mariners and Reds, has become a star in Japan, breaking the NPB single-season home run record. He was arrested in Florida on domestic violence charges.
The arbitration deadline was this week, and Price was arguably the most notable name among those eligible. He'll make $14 million in 2014.
Not MLB-related, but linked because of its gross absurdity.
