You're talking about Slate here - of course he's being obtuse

I can’t decide if you are being intentionally obtuse or not.

When you're talking about over 10 million a year being deferred, that's a significant amount of money.

Also, taxes don't "compound." You only get taxed on the money you make. So you get taxed once on the 10 million, and then only on the percentage you make beyond that. The state doesn't get to re-tax the principal.

I can’t decide if you are being intentionally obtuse or not.  Taxed money is money you cannot otherwise invest. The effect of not having this money compounds over years. You don’t just lose the 8 percent that was paid in tax, you lose out on the interest that you would have made every year which would have compounded.

Deferred money eventually gets paid. The only thing you lose out on is the interest you could have made on that money. Which also would have compounded (which is the point I assume you were making originally).

If you want a real world example look at the projected payouts of an index fund or 401(k) with just a 1% increase in fees (which are a just a tax that is paid to the fund manager instead of the government). The difference in the payoff amounts over years is many multiples of what was actually paid in fees.  Because of compounding...

It’s the exact same thing.

More or less, if we can land a Ryu or a Bumgarner, then Rendon is more important, and if we can land Donaldson, then Stras is more important.  I hope the replacement for either Rendon or Strasburg is not someone on our roster right now.  At least with Ryu, you would not need to go many years.
Cant remember where but I saw a graphs that showed Bumgarner's hard contact percentage and away ERA the last three years. They were not in his favor.

I wonder about Ryu and wanting to stay on the west coast.

I'm having a bit of trouble following this thought, could you clarify?

As an example of my confusion, I would think Florida has a lot more than 4.9% more pro athletes residing there than say Vermont.  Maybe 1500% more.
It's not a percentage. It was 4.9 times the national average.

I read somewhere that the state of florida has 4.9% more current and former professional athletes residing there.
No state taxes, warm weather, and great real estate is a big draw. Westlake, TX is another place that has a high concentration of residents that are professional athletes and celebrities. Socal is expensive, but there's a lot of attractive lifestyle reasons to move there if you're a wealthy athlete. Almost every F1 driver lives in monaco even though real estate and cost of living is high and it's because they pay zero taxes which can easily offset everything that is expensive there.
