Is he worth it? He definitely deserves to be the highest paid player but they're going to hate paying him $30 mil a year for his age 36 through age 41 seasons.

 

 

Cabrera, who turns 31 in April, is an eight-time All-Star in 11 seasons with the Marlins and Tigers. He's a .321 career hitter with 365 home runs. He's the only major league player with 100 or more RBIs in each of the past 10 seasons, and last year he became the first Tiger to win three consecutive batting titles since Ty Cobb achieved the feat from 1917-1919.

 

Cabrera's last extension with the Tigers paid him $22 million this year and next year, so the new deal will add eight years and about $250 million to that total.

If the new contract is calculated as a single,10-year entity, it will surpass the 10-year, $275 million contract that Alex Rodriguez signed with the New York Yankees in December 2007 as the largest deal in Major League Baseball history. Based on a career average of 607 at-bats per season and an average of $30 million annually, Cabrera would earn $49,423 per at-bat.

Miggy is freakin awesome, but no way am I giving any 31 y/o a 10 year contract for 30 mil per. No way.

The next Pujols here. He was worth this contract 4 years ago.

On the way to work, I heard on the Fan that his estimated pay per at bat will be something like $49K which is a little higher than the average annual salary for a Michigan family.

I couldn't have said it better. this was the first thought I had when I heard about this deal.

Players revenge. Probably from all the years of being ripped off. read about how the Yankees used to always try to give their Hall of Famer's pay cuts every year even though they had great seasons?
