Baseball players are among the highest paid professional athletes—salaries that allow the leagues’ brightest stars to earn astronomical salaries. Currently, the league’s highest paid player is Alex Rodriguez, who will make $29.5 million before the conclusion of the 2013 Major League Season. But, according to the folks at baseball almanac, Rodriguez’s current contract—while mammoth—is not unprecedented. And, while Rodriguez is the highest paid player in the history of the Big Leagues, there were other players that predate Rodriguez who—for their time—made unthinkable amounts of money.

Before beginning, a reminder is needed to re-establish the fact that this is an article that contracts record-breaking contracts—it is not an article chronicling the largest contracts in Major League Baseball history. 10.

Now for the bad news. Yankees general...
We reported the news last night of the rather umm… direct way New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman responded to Alex Rodriguez tweeting out that he had been cleared by doctors to resume playing baseball.

And who could blame him, Cashman spoke what most sports fans have thought for years now. It’s bad when you win a World Series in New York and the fans still can’t stand ya. Just another story...
