Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers reached a 10-year, $292 million contract extension yesterday. That’s not a misprint, it’s just an obscene amount of money.
The deal, the largest in baseball history, came as a bit of a surprise to many pundits because the Triple Crown winner had two years remaining on his existing contract.
Time will tell if such an investment was wise. But what is immediately clear is Cabrera’s excitement.
He celebrated the record deal with his barber (weird, right) yesterday with a peculiar Instagram post.
God, I don’t even know the name of the guy who cuts my hair. Props to Miggy for hanging with the unwashed masses.
We can only assume Cabrera tipped handsomely for this particular trim.
