This is the worst contract of all time from a player's perspective. 

Agreed.  I thought it'd be far more when I first heard he signed an extension.

Albies has the upside to get $35 million PER SEASON by the second half of this deal. The Barves took him for a ride and he jumped on without a seatbelt and was ejected through the windshield Adaptation-style.

From MLBTR:

announcing a contract extension with second baseman Ozzie Albies that’ll guarantee the 22-year-old a total of $35MM from 2019-25. The contract includes a pair of club options reportedly valued at $7MM apiece, each of which has a $4MM buyout.

 

No man.....it's 35M TOTAL.  with 2 7M options at the back end to make it possibly a total 9 year 45M max.

I can see a player taking it as life changing money and not considering the potential future lost income, but how can an agent not talk him out of it?

"Oscar we'll give you $35 million right now"

"For next season?"

"For the next seasons, yeah."

"Okay."
