According to Rosenthal; none of the money is deferred, he has a full no-trade clause, and he can opt out after 5 years.

Insane.

About what was expected. Maybe a little less. But a good deal for both Cole and the Yankees.

No, this is beyond what anyone was expecting in terms of length, AAV and total value. The analysts had originally thought that Cole was going to get in the neighborhood of 6 years and $215 million and the Strasburg contract ended up bumping up the price and years considerably.

And I believe Wheeler's deal pushed Strasburg's deal upward.

Yes and Strasburg and Cole's contracts have zero opt-outs for the Nationals and Yankees. Those are some massively risky contracts...

Somehow I don't think given their roster makeups and revenue streams - largely due to success on the baseball field - that they care as much as you think they do.

I had Cole at 10/$350 at the start of the offseason. After Strasburg got 7 years, a lot of people thought he'd get there. Most thought he wouldn't sign before breaking Harper's guarantee from last offseason. I'm shocked honestly it didn't take more.

This is insane! Over a million dollars per start! Great deal for Cole and horrible for New York. They better hope he stays healthy because they are married to him now! With these kind of salaries fans better start taking out loans to buy season tickets!

This is a myth. Teams are not making the most money from the attendance, its all digital and media related and sponsorships.

You are both correct. I know for a fact NYY ticket prices went up after signing Sabathia and Texeira.

What the market will bear. Until teams are making less than maximum money prices will continue to rise.

That's because demand increased due to improved product for an already high demand item.

That's why I said they are both right. Ticket prices are about demand and demand is affected by the perceived quality of players, most of whom receive the largest salaries.
