Buster Olney tweeted early this morning that the Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw are talking about a long term deal.

It’s not serious yet — just the greetings and preliminaries — but this a signing the Dodgers need to make.  Stay out of the Prince Fielder derby if you want to, but locking up the future of the franchise is essential.  They got Matt Kemp. Now it’s time to get Kershaw.

    5/$70M about right? He’s going to get $8M or so this year in his first arb year.

      I’m thinking 8/$150 will get it done.

    Kershaw should get a comparable deal
    to the ones King Felix and and Mr MVP got.

    He needs to got to arbitration, year to year until he gets to FA and sign the 8 yr, 200 million contract with the Yankees. If he ever wants a ring, he’ll have to do his time with the Dodgers first.
