Mandatory Credit: Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY SportsThe Los Angeles Dodgers are red hot right now, and they want to keep the momentum going long term. To do this, they intend to strike a deal with Clayton Kershaw, which could be the largest MLB contract ever.

Previously, the Dodgers discussed a $210 million, seven-year extension with the pitcher. This would also include an opt-out clause after five years.

However, these talks cooled off. Kershaw will be a free agent in 2014, or can enter arbitration at the end of this season.

This would give Kershaw the largest contract in MLB, and everyone knows the Dodgers aren’t afraid to spend their money.
