The Miami Marlins of Major League Baseball–which just nearly had its lowest rated World Series ever–will pay outfielder Giancarlo Stanton $325 million over the next 13 years. Under the deal, the 25-year-old Stanton can only be traded if he agrees and he has the option to opt out of the contract early–in case someone offers him MORE MONEY! The deal, according to CBS Sports, is in the books–though it has not yet been inked. Perhaps a loose end needs tying up–like free socks for life or something.
The Stanton deal would shatter the current contract record set by Alex Rodriguez’s $275 million Yankees deal. Stanton hit 37 home runs for the Marlins last year, which was awesome. But under the new contract, 37 home runs will be officially just okay.
