    "Two-time American League MVP Miguel Cabrera has agreed to terms with the Detroit Tigers on a new 10-year contract that will pay him $292 million, a baseball source said."

    "According to CBSSports.com, which earlier reported Detroit and Cabrera were closing in on an agreement, the new deal also includes two additional vesting options worth $30 million apiece for years 11 and 12 that could bring the total of the deal to $352 million."

    I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I PLAYED HOCKEY!!! :pissed:.....:snicker:

    Anyway in all seriousness, the money in baseball is getting out of control. It's all guaranteed in baseball. These guys sign big contracts and then can do whatever and still get paid. It's the fans who pay. It's the fans who get screwed by these contracts. That's what stinks. $352,000,000 full contract is insane. I know the owners make money, trust me, but these baseball players do not have to play to full potential now. All locked in writing.

    This is a guy who's 31 yrs old. $350 million/10 yrs, for a guy who as the cusp of past his prime? Granted he'll probably not make it to year 11 or 12 but still. In 5 years he'll be 36. I don't know. Crazy.

    Granted it's more of a hedge contract but still, all these contracts get loaded on to the fans with hikes in ticket, beer, hot dog, merchandise, etc, prices. When I was a kid, my father just bought hockey tickets himself for me and my brothers to go. It wasn't out of control. Now my friends ask me to do them favors, to get tickets. I can't blame them. It's a bit insane.

    Fans have to suffer and get money raped for a 31 yr old for $300 million? :dontknow:

    Like with Robinson Cano, the team feels he brings a value beyond what he does on the field.

    The Tiger and Mariner management will both realize they were fucking idiots by 2020.

    Cano left NY for a reason. Why Seattle paid that much is beyond me.

    Robin some Football player on the Chicago Tigers guy just got handed 300 million for doing nothing. I hate people getting rich who didn't earn it like I did.
