There are any number of ways to illustrate that Miguel Cabrera — who will reportedly get paid $292 million over the next 10 years after agreeing to a new contract with the Detroit Tigers —makes an absurd amount of money.
Miguel Cabrera will earn $49,423 PER AT BAT over the next decade. Median annual income of a household in Michigan: $48,471.— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) March 27, 2014
If you'd like that to be even more obscene, consider this: The median annual income for a household specifically in Detroit was $26,995 in 2012. We know pro athletes are paid an insane amount, but still — that's stunning.
