DEtroit Tigers sign Miguel Cabrera to record contract

292 million bucks? YEP!

Miguel Cabrera is about to have the best weekend of his life, as the Triple Crown winner agreed to a $292 million, 10-year contract Friday with the Detroit Tigers.

Cabrera takes over baseball’s highest-paying contract from Alex Rodriguez, who agreed to a $252 million, 10-year deal with Texas that started in 2001. That was before A-Rod was famously traded to the Yankees after three seasons, and then signed a $275 million, 10-year deal with New York in December 2006. Cabrera’s average of $29.2 million is second only to the $30,714,286 that Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw averages under his $215 million, seven-year deal in January. Which proves that having no price cap in baseball is just insane sometimes.
