For 35 MM/year I don't think a 3 war/year is sufficient. 35MM should buy at least 5 WAR IMHO.

E.g. Scherzer has cost about 30MM/year over the last 6 years and he has been worth about 40 WAR for 240 MM. or about 6 MM/WAR

I don't see Strasburg's contract being worth it after year 5.

But considering what Cole went for, I guess I can't complain.
