    Reports saying this deal is also backloaded - which is good for the Marlins if he opts out in the middle.

    "According to a major league source who had seen the terms, Stanton's salaries over those first three seasons will be only $6.5 million in 2015, $9 million in 2016 and $14.5 million in 2017, far less than he could have earned through arbitration in 2015 and 2016 and then via free agency. He would earn $77 million over the next three seasons and could opt out of the contract after 2020, following his age 30 season."

    Not a coincidence that this is also when the current television contract is up.
    "...it just sounded to me like he felt like he did not do it."

    I should have known that with Loria involved, there is a catch related to his personal enrichment. The Marlins TV deal is up in 2020 and they plan to begin negotiations in the next 2-3 years. This is an attempt to improve local ratings, which are the worst nationally, and improve their bargaining position to offer his TV partners a team with a star attraction. Winning and signing his star player will make Loria money, so now he's willing to do those things.

    Did you think baseball wasn't a business? No owner EVER makes ANY move unless he believes it will make him more money somehow. That is why they own the teams. Owners only care about championships because they tend to result in more money through merchandise, tickets, and TV deals. Now are they always the right moves? No, but they are made to improve profits. Maybe this is the cynical accountant in me, but I think not.

    Does no one learn from the Yankees stupid mistakes/big contract signings?

    Looks like the Marlins are trying to now lock down their core of young players.

    Because if not, I don't know why the owner of a Stanton superfractor would be happy, since he'll be playing in a relative obscurity, compared to if he had signed to a team with a huge fan base, which translates to much higher prices.

    Maybe the Marlins super fan sitting behind the plate for all the World Series games bought it?
