In Major League Baseball, Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera became the highest paid player in the history of sports on Thursday. The 2 time MVP will get 8 years, 248 million dollars combined with the 2 years and 44 million left on his current contract. Altogether that's 10 years, 292 million dollars. To put that in perspective: Miguel Cabrera will make more money per at bat than the median income of a household in Michigan.
