The biggest word in the 2023-2024 Major League Free Agent (FA) market is by far Shohei Ohtani (29‧ LA Angels). In recent years, there is even an expectation that a certain player will be the only case of sucking up all the issues in the FA market.
Ohtani will qualify for free agency at the end of the 2023 season. Throughout the year, various stories about Ohtani’s future are expected to flourish. At the beginning of the season, all attention will be focused on whether the Los Angeles Angels will offer Ohtani a huge extension contract, whether Ohtani will be traded ahead of the July trade market, and whether to use the largest contract ever in the major leagues ahead of FA qualification. Because.
The largest contract in terms of total value in major league history is held by Mike Trout (32, Los Angeles Angels), a colleague of Ohtani and selected as the best player in the major leagues. Trout signed a 12-year, $426.5 million contract ahead of the 2019 season. He is the only player in major league history to exceed the $400 million contract value. The word 메이저사이트 ‘best’ makes you feel real.
Trout’s contract is top-notch even in North America, the paradise of professional sports. There are differences depending on how you view the guaranteed amount, but local media consider the 10-year, $450 million contract signed by Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City’s quarterback in the National Football League (NFL), the highest ever. Whether Ohtani can overcome this has now emerged as a matter of interest.
ESPN recently conducted a survey of Ohtani’s expected value against the front desk of a major league club. One executive projected Ohtani to be worth around $480 million over 12 years, while another agent projected $430 million over 10 years. With the overall ransom price soaring in the market recently, the prospect that $400 million will pass without difficulty is spreading. The atmosphere has changed again from two years ago.
Even the UK’s influential football magazine ‘Mirror’ noted that Ohtani could do what Cristiano Ronaldo (38‧ Al Nasr), the world’s highest-paid soccer star, could not do.
‘Mirror’ reported on the 19th (Korean time) in an article titled ‘MLB megastar Shohei Ohtani may sign the biggest contract in history, surpassing Cristiano Ronaldo’, ‘Ronaldo recently signed a 75 million contract with Saudi Arabia’s Al Nasr a year. I made a huge contract called the dollar. Ronaldo is currently the highest-paid athlete in the world, but his contract is short-lived. He expressed interest, saying that even he couldn’t break the $500 million record.
‘The Mirror’ said ‘This player is considered by many to be the best player in the league and one of the most uniquely gifted players in history. “Given the booming market and the talent Ohtani has to offer, many believe he is the upper limit for North America.” and make predictions that the NFL’s Patrick Mahomes could surpass what was signed. Judge’s contract this year (9 years, $360 million) will be dwarfed in one year,’ he predicted.
