Agreed to terms with the Rangers on a 6-year, $60M deal, making Texas' total investment around $110 million. Will he be worth it?

I think he'll be pretty good, but I dont think more than one or two $100 million pitchers have really been worth it (Sabathia and...????). People will compare him to Dice-K, and people are really down on Dice-K. He did win 15 games with a league-average ERA as a rookie, and then went 18-3 with a 2.90 ERA in his second year. He's been hurt since then. The tough thing for any SP coming from Japan is that over there, they pitch once a week. Not every five days and I think that's underlooked.

The Winner's Curse. I gotta say, I think they'll regret this. They're still planning on having Feliz in the rotation, right?
