    I read where he is giving up $100 million over four years. He is 31 years old. Although I don't follow all the salary info from MLB, this seems to be a bit of a calculated risk IMO. What are they paying starters of his caliber and health nowadays?

    He'll get a raise, probably close to $30,000,000 a year for 5 or 6 years.

    That is about $1 million per start or $10,000 per pitch.
