Yu Darvish contract year-by-year breakdown

Here's how much the Rangers will pay Yu Darvish each season as part of the six-year, $60 million contract they agreed to Wednesday.

Keep in mind that $56 million is guaranteed, and the rest can be earned through roster bonuses. He can opt out after five years if he reaches some high performance thresholds.

Also take note of the 2012 salary. The entire deal is Rangers-friendly if Darvish performs at an elite level.

2012: $5.5 million

2013: $9.5 million

2014: $10 million

2015: $10 million

2016: $10 million

2017: $11 million

Completely Ranger friendly is under stated. This kid doesn't have to be all world to satisfactorily complete this deal.

Great job front office. Now, tell JOSH he is worth three years @ $17.5M and a forth year mutual AT $20M with a $750,000 buy out. AND give him 24 hours to accept or reject.

Hour 25 rolls around start on the fat kid from Milwuakee.
