Nobody is worth that much money. Or are they? $9 a second may sound extraordianry, but it's now in baseball history. Carlos Stanton worked hard to get where he is at. Some believe he deserves to get paid that much for all that hard work. But over $30 million a year and $325 million for 10 years?
I personally think that this is ridciulous. That much money for anyone is way too much. Is this what it really takes to keep a franchise going? Some teams' total starting line-up payroll can be less then this single player's annual salary. But I guess this is what happens when you reach celebrity status. Who knows? One day I may have to wrestle with this similar issue.
