Before the two parties reached an agreement, the Giants and Cain’s agents were struggling to come to an agreement as Cain maintained that his absolute floor was five years and $100 million.  Under the new deal, Cain is guaranteed $112.5 million of new money over five years, the largest contract ever for a right-handed pitcher, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
