Can we really feel bad for Mike Hampton and his real estate issues in Phoenix? You think Mike felt bad making $124,000,000 over his 16-year baseball career which accounted for one 20-win season and two all-star appearances? Look, Mike’s about to lose at least $2,000,000 on this pad and how much more in decorations wasted. Could you rich bastards just settle for the $500k 5 bedroom, 2.5 bath spread?

No? Then you deserve to crash and burn.

Mike paid $6mm in 2006 for this massive spread back in the good days when he was playing for the Braves, still sucking up around $15mm per year. Then 2008 rolled around and the Hampton family put the place up for sale at $7,250,000. Three years later they’re down to $4mm.
