    Rich Hill has one of the most unusual careers of a MLB starting pitcher I Can recall in my 50 years as an avid fan of America's Pastime, Baseball. Rich started as a little leaguer taught by his older brothers how to play and pitch in the game they loved. His brother John told him the fastest route to MLB would be as a LHP. So he tied his right hand behind his back and Rich became a starting LHP. Drafted in 2004 by the Cubs,he culminated his minor league. career by being named MVP of the AAA All-Star game.on to the Majors making a mark in 2007 with a 11-8 season with being 5th in NL in Ks. Then runs into arm problems due to mechanic problems, I think may have been contributed to trying to convert him to mechanics best suited for natural lefties that ascended to MLB. Along comes switch to relief pitcher, Tommy-John Surgery trade jumps to the higher echelon MLB teams, tragic death of his infant son, and leaving the Washington Nationals. Finally realizing he' a born starter;his forte is his work ethic in preparation for a game, he joins the Atlantic Coast League. Pitching again as a STARTER, in his last game strikes out 14 of the18 batteros gets call from Red Sox to help their need for a starter for the end of the 2015 season from then on it becomes the story of his MLB stats. His arm and body is young with the mind of a vetran. So does he get and deserve the big pay day, I would vote with a resounding YES !!!

    2 year 18 to 20 mill seems more likely..injuries may scare teams from a longer larger commitment.
