I also bet 550 billion on the home run king… San Diego runaway, can money win?
San Diego signed a 5-year, 100 million dollar (approximately 132.1 billion won) contract extension with right-hander Joe Musgrove in August of last year, followed by an 11-year, 280 million dollar (approximately 369.7 billion won) contract for large infielder Zander Bogarts in the free agent market. ), and gave veteran right-hander Darvish Yu a huge sum of 108 million dollars (approximately 142.6 billion won) over 6 years, and then Manny Machado, the league’s best third baseman who declared an opt-out after the end of this season, for 11 years and 350 million dollars ( About 462.2 billion won), and showed off the majesty of the ‘big hand’.
Prior to this, in 2021, a 14-year contract with Fernando Tatis Jr. (approximately 449 billion won) was signed, so San Diego’s enormous financial power can be confirmed. Here, rumors of a long-term contract with Juan Soto are already rising. Soto was already offered a 15-year, 440 million dollar (approximately 581 billion won) contract extension from Washington last July. It is not uncommon to hear that he has booked the first ‘500 million dollar contract’ ever.
San Diego’s ‘runaway run’ also went to the ‘home run king’ who hit the major leagues last year. It was revealed that he offered a long-term free agent contract to Aaron Judge, who hit 62 home runs last season, set a new American League record, and even won the regular season MVP. 온라인바카라
On the 27th (Korean time), the official Major League homepage (MLB.com) reported on the news of Judge’s participation in the exhibition game and the fact that he received a large offer from San Diego last December.
‘MLB.com’ said, “Jersey received an offer from San Diego for 14 years and 414 million dollars (approximately 546.7 billion won) and 9 years and 360 million dollars (approximately 475.4 billion won) from San Francisco. Hal Steinbrenner, the owner of the New York Yankees, proposed Jersey. He made me call him urgently.”
The offer from San Diego is also eye-catching. The period is also a period, but you can’t help but pay attention to the amount that far exceeds 400 million dollars. Mike Trout is the only player in MLB history to have signed a $400 million contract. Trout signed a 12-year, $426.5 million (approximately 563.2 billion won) contract with the Los Angeles Angels and wrote a new history.
However, Judge eventually chose to stay with the Yankees. The contract between Jersey and the Yankees was 9 years and 360 million dollars. It is a condition that he receives an annual salary of 40 million dollars (approximately 52.8 billion won) each year.
Even though San Diego couldn’t bring him to Judge, the offer he gave to Judge showed how strong the desire to win the first World Series was. It remains to be seen whether San Diego will bear the fruit of winning the World Series through bold investment.
