Especially if he's having the dream season of .330 BA and .400+ OBP. If he does that this year, he'll get 15 million per year.
He might get 15 million even if he doesn't do that.
As for the thread question, I think you need to do it. Yeah, it would hurt our future, but giving us an even better chance for a WS title than we already have is hard to pass up on. Our current roster has a window through 2015, if my memory serves me. Adding a guy like Stanton ensures that the window will close, but its open wider before it does.
