Highest Contract you've ever seen.

Stephen Strasburg just signed a 9 year contract for $342 million earning $38 million a year in my game. Just wondering what were some of the largest contracts you've seen

I'm playing a fictional league with 1972 financial settings, so the highest I've seen was 6 year for close to 2 million.

Coming off a season where he hit .346/47hrs/136RBI/37SB and a gold glove, Mike Trout signed a 7 year, $280 million contract with the Diamondbacks.

I went to extend Trout during the season and he was demanding 9 years with an average salary of $47.5 million, totaling $427,500,000. I lol'd and re-signed him in the offseason for about half of that.

That is usually the case with free agents. I wish it was a little more realistic though.

Like Corey Hart was coming off a season for me on the Brewers where he only made it to 83 games, batted .276/13hrs/1.1WAR and he was asking for a 7yr/140mm and got insulted when I offered him half of that.

It shouldn't be that large of a gap unless the player's personality had a large greed rating.

So What Does a Mike Trout Extension Look Like Now? | FanGraphs Baseball

Interesting read there.

David Eckstein signed a deal that included a $47.5M vesting option if he played in like 120 games. Missed 3/4 of the season and wound up batting .400 in the games he did play. Would have been worth it if he'd played a full season, probably.

A fictional player named Nick Walker signed a 5-year, $180 million deal with the Cubs, following seasons with 7.3, 6.2, 8.8, then 3.5 WAR with the Rockies. He is making $43 million in the last year of his deal in 2023.

Even my crazy money deals tend to be reasonable in length, I have noticed. The Pujols deal is still the longest/richest on the books as of 2021 in my league. 5-years isn't bad even at insane dollars, although the Cubs got the 3.5 WAR guy instead of the 6 WAR guy, but I figure that was some kind of Cubs Code in play.
