Every pitcher comes with some risk and any team thinking about signing one has to deal with that. Here's a look at the deals for pitchers that have signed this offseason which give us some clues about how teams price risk.

First, it looked like Matt Garza had a deal with Brewers, now it is just talks. Grant Balfour actually does have a deal with the Rays and no, you weren't dreaming the Yankees did give Tanaka $155 million, which doesn't seem to be shocking anyone else

Fister, Kimbrel and flawed arbitration valuations

The arbitration system assigns values to players using out-dated methodologies and the results are often absurd, but no one seems to mind.

Clayton Kershaw vs Clark the Cub

One is the face of a noble franchise, the other isn't wearing pants.

Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher in the game and now he is also its highest paid player, so all is right in the world.
