I totally disagree. With Verlander's track record and never being hurt, he'll get close to 200 mill or more over the course of probably 5-6 years (only because he's 30) the risk/reward is well worth it. And Price will get paid by someone whether it be the Red Sox, Baltimore, LAA, or someone else. 26-27 years old as a pitcher is a prime age for most, giving him a 7-10 year deal isn't insane by any means.. he's just as good as Felix (if not better) plus he's left handed, I see no reason why he wouldn't get paid a boat load.
