Earlier in 2019, the Colorado Rockies gave superstar third baseman Nolan Arenado a $260 million deal, the San Diego Padres landed Manny Machado with a $300 million contract, and Bryce Harper signed a 13-year, $330 million deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. If you are a die-hard baseball fan, it is easy to lose perspective on just how massive these deals are. Trout’s $430 million deal alone is worth as much as or more than eight NHL franchises and all 23 Major League Soccer
