Good post AR I didn't exclude the rest to make you look bad, its just that I only want to address this point.
This sentiment seems to be a prevailing one of those defending this deal. It's true that young pitching is a role of the dice. I just happen to think mid-30 year old ballplayers with chronic back conditions making tons of money are bigger roles of the dice.
