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.
