I just saw that Miguel Cabrera has signed a contract for $472,000 dollars to play for the Marlins next year. I’m not surprised nor bothered by this, given the rules of the CBA; however, I just happened to be involved in a project converting on-field performance into dollars. I found that last year’s performance by Cabrera was worth $14.57 million—only 30-times his salary for next year. Wow. When I see divergences like that, I wonder how long it will be before a new league pops up.
