This is the fourth free agent contract in excess of $100 million to be given by the Cubs, which ranks second all-time behind the Yankees (6).
Aside from what his arrival means for the Cubs, Darvish's contract - which reportedly contains an opt-out, a no-trade provision and escalators that could bring the total value to $150 million - also eases, at least for now, the sense of foreboding hanging over Major League Baseball with camps set to open next week.

The Cubs, who have been bolstering the team in the offseason as they aim for their first World Series championship in two years, reached the playoffs for the third consecutive year last season but lost to the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series.
But it gets better.
Darvish came to the United States as a Japanese pitching phenom and early on lived up that.
Most rumblings had Epstein more interested in pursuing a younger, less expensive starter who was under team control for two or more seasons, like Tampa Bay's Chris Archer or Toronto's Marcus Stroman. After year three, he made three straight All-Star games. Darvish figures to replace fellow right-hander Jake Arrieta, who remains available on the free-agent market.
