Wait, so the Rangers will be paying A-Rod for another 20 years? Or am I just stupid and reading that wrong?


nope you didn't read it wrong

They basically paid/ are paying him just under $50 million a year for his three years there

That's one of the most ridiculous contract negotiations I've ever heard.
