Think about it.
Alex Rodriguez will receive $6 million when he reaches each of five milestones: the career home run totals of Willie Mays (660), Babe Ruth (714), Henry Aaron (755) and Barry Bonds (762), and when he breaks the record. This is above his annual salary of $27.5 million.
A-Rod should reach 660 homers in 2011. And, he should reach 714 homers in 2012.
But, come 2014, during that year, A-Rod should be reaching his 755th, 762nd and 763rd career homeruns in the season.
So, when you add $6 million times three to the $27.5 million, Alex Rodriguez will earn $45.5 million in 2014.
Some payday, huh?
