    Every offseason in MLB especially, the superstar free agents sign contracts that are record deals. Sabathia and Burnett signed the two biggest pitching contracts ever. It's almost like the player goes in and says "I want the biggest contract in the history of the organization/sport.

    The price of entertainment. Their salaries pale in comparison to other professions.
