a stipulation be placed in the contract that would void out the contract if he were to come up hot on a PED test?

The stipulation should be placed on Dipoto. No more signing of expensive players past 30 years of age. With our tenuous pitching situation, the team is in no position to gamble by taking a flyer on a 41 year old former power pitcher.

I'm not sure about the specifics of the CBA, but I don't think you can void a contract based on PED tests.

 

You don't have to pay a player for the games he's suspended though. 

The players may actually revisit the CBA to put stronger rules in effect, that is if you go by what Brad Ziegler feels.

If he wasn't pretty much a lock to sign a new deal with the Raviners, Kershaw is the perfect guy to sign after 2014, being only 27 in 2015.

Of course if the Raviner rumors are true, it would take at least $300 million for the rest of his career to sign him. 

10 years/$310 million?   That allows him one more smaller contract, elsewhere or here, starting at age 37.

 

Of course, what would that do to the chances of keeping Trout beyond 2017?

Although the Wells and Hamilton contracts (some $40 million in 2014 and $30 million in 2015-2017) are off the books by then.

His numbers got even better in 2013, less hits and walks, just as many Ks, and only 11 HRs allowed. 

He seems to be just entering his prime years at age 26 in 2014.

Maybe he's become a complete pitcher who doesn't need to dial it up on every fastball anymore, same as with Price but being 2 years younger than Price.

I think Kershaw will continue to be one of the best for another 3-4 years, but I think it's clear he's going to decline sooner than people anticipate.
