Max Scherzer signs huge deal 

Baseball's big story right now centers around a star pitcher after Washington Nationals managed to finalize a deal with Max Scherzer. The 30-year-old superstar pitcher will earn $210 million over the course of his seven-year contract. 

Some MLB fans have questioned why he left perennial World Series challengers the Detroit Tigers after two All-Star seasons with the Tigers. But speaking on Wednesday, Scherzer gave the simply answer - the ability for the team to win going forward was the key reasoning behind his decision.

"It's pretty easy," Scherzer explained on Wednesday. "Winning. I think this team is capable of winning and winning a lot."
