19-year old Milwaukee Brewers prospect Jackson Chourio can't even drink, but he's picking up the bar tab for his teammates for a while. Chourio is about to get paid with an 8-year extension worth almost $80 million....despite never playing an MLB Game...

Kid is from Venezuela. They have a real bad habit of kidnapping the families of millionaire baseball players.

Didn’t Albies screw himself by signing a long term deal that ended up underpaying him significantly?

No. Him and Acuna are both happy with their deals. Why are you so concerned?

My bad, I didn’t see he is already in AAA.

So maybe late next season.

It’s a calculated gamble on their part. If he’s just half decent he’ll be well worth $10MM AAV. If he’s a great player or even just pretty good it will be a steal. $10MM is not that much in the MLB these days.

The kid is 3 years away from playing in the majors.

Baseball is incentivized to pay their stars earlier because the amount young superstars are commanding in their first big deal is insane. The Brewers can't afford a $300M-$400M deal, so this is what they settle for. The player is smart because if he ends up as an all-star, he'll have plenty of years for another mega deal after this one is done.

At a standard 5% commission, he earned $4M at the signing of the contract. And that's before the higher commission rates on any endorsement deal.

I'd play a season or 2 and retire for a garunteed $80,000,000.

it's guaranteed, but not if he quits. Guaranteed means the Brewers can't release him and bail on the contract. But if a player quits, I'm certain the contact is void. That's why coaches almost never step down - they wait to get fired so they get the buyout.

You don't just get paid if you quit.
