I think we all agree that there's a number that's not enough over $10.5, and there's a number that is.
I just did a little bit of math, and have concluded that, if I were 22 and looking at Strasburg's situation, I would ask for $3.6 million. Why so little? Well, if I blew my arm out at age 23 and never drew a single paycheck from anybody again, I'd have $60,000 per year for the rest of my life, not even counting compound interest. Maybe I have low expectations, eh?
