To paraphrase a Mr. Dirksen myth: "A million here Jung-ho Kang Jersey , a million there, and pretty soon you’re talking real money.""Ok, while chatting this week in the comments I reminded myself of a study I had done years ago that looked into just how well a person’s family might do across the generations if they had a $300 million kick start. I didn’t hang onto that model, so I got curious all over again and built a new one.The inspiration is the current conversation about Free Agent contracts, player negotiations, fair values, and arguments back and forth over which side is more evil, the owners or the players? We lose sight of what, exactly, we are talking about. We gloss right over the number of zeros involved, and the place all those zeros have in the larger world outside of baseball.I realize that the money is there in sports. I understand how that money gets distilled and concentrated into the hands of those incredibly few people blessed with the talent, luck, and opportunity. This is not to begrudge them the value of their success and good luck among the entirety of the human population. And, yes, there is a huge amount of luck involved.There are a thousand billionaires in the world, and tens of thousands of people close enough to that who could pool their money and buy an MLB franchise IF they cared, and IF one became available for sale at the right moment of their lifetime. And there are tens of thousands of people with superior athletic ability who could be in MLB instead of some who are there now, IF they had cared to become a baseball player and IF they had the access at the moment (there are probably dozens of guys in Korea and Japan today who could produce at a higher level than Matt Joyce will in 2019, but Joyce is the one who is here, and was available).But $300 million is a lot of money. It is astonishing what can happen to $300 million over time. It is a level of security and opportunity that extends across generations and lasts for decades. This is one contract, for one person, for 10 years worth of service, for 8 months labor out of the year, to perform in a recreational pastime at the highest levels of human achievement for the viewing distraction of some small segment of one society. This one contract creates nearly 100 years of benefit for 4 generations of family.Let’s create some context. We can discuss this on a global scale because MLB is populated by a large contingent of international players. Those players come from other economies with other standards of living. Their relative wealth is not confined to some peerage of Newport Beach, CA. Further, that kind of wealth enables the recipient access to the entire world. They could move to Costa Rica and live out the remainder of their life happy as a clam. They are not required to suffer having their driver take them out of Brentwood so they can purchase their produce at the Gelson’s all the way over in Santa Monica. According to Global Rich List, $300M would instantly make the recipient the 5,393rd wealthiest person on Earth. Among the top 0.0001% richest people alive, anywhere. That’s ‘one millionth of one percent’. So gather up all the people on the planet who are credited with having any wealth at all (this excludes children, for example), then sort out every 1 hundredth person and dismiss everyone else back to their lives. Now, out of all those still with you, the ones who were every hundredth person, count out every millionth person and send the others home. That remaining pool? About 5400 folks.7.7 billion humans walking the planet, and we are talking about the same number of people who might gather together and all fit into the outfield seating areas of Angels Stadium. If you had a wall map of Earth, 8 foot high and 20 feet long, you could not purchase a needle with a small enough point that would be sufficiently fine to obscure just that little plot of land occupied by those 5400. And all the rest of the planet across all the rest of that wall would be everyone and everything less fortunate.Now let’s play a game. Imagine Sam Superba being awarded his $300 million contract. And let’s pretend, for sake of convenience, that the money is all up front. And Sam’s financial experts take that $300M and lock it up in investments, out of which Sam and his family will get paid.For Sam Francisco Cervelli Jersey , his first annual payment will be $10M, to do with as he pleases. This will happen upon his 30th birthday, and will continue on every birth date until his 75th. Sam will not live to see his 76th birthday, so he will no longer get an annual payday.Sam will have two children. Tommy will be born when Sam is 31 (2020), and Tammy will be born when Sam is 34 (2023). Upon reaching their 18th birthdays, Tommy and Tammy will each begin to be paid a stipend every year, which will continue until their 75th birthdays. Again, neither will reach the age of 76.Tommy will have two children, again at the ages of 31 and 34. And Tammy will, likewise, have 2 children at 31 and 34. Every generation of Sam’s heirs will have the exact same repeating sequence. One child at 31 and one child at 34. Each heir will start getting a stipend at 18 and ending at 75.The very fist stipend, to be paid to Tommy when he reaches the age of 18, will be $1M. As you can work out for yourself, this happens 18 years after Sam gets his first payday. This $1M sets the starting point for ALL stipends to ALL heirs (and will rise accordingly with COLA, which we will define below, starting with that first payment). This means that Tammy’s first stipend, when she turns 18, will be $1,092,727. Tommy will also be getting $1,092,727 that year. And so on.With all that established, now we play with the money.First, imagine that the original $300M is invested in such a way that it yields a 6% annual, compounded, return. And we compound that return AFTER we deduct from the fund any payments to Sam and his heirs. (Yes, I could compound BEFORE, which would make the following results even more amazing.) Second, we assume a 3% annual Cost Of Living Adjustment for everybody, Sam and every heir who ends up receiving income. Third, we assume no service fees or commissions or taxes. I could figure that out but it makes an already complex spreadsheet even more complex and this tale is not worth that much work. If I go to that trouble, I will pay out BEFORE compounding AND change the story to $500 million and play with the return and COLA. Instead, we will just deal with the grosses.So here is the game: how much money does everybody make and how long does all that money last? Do you have any guesses?The answers are pretty astonishing.Sam, himself, will realize payouts totaling $965,014,572.Tommy and Tammy will, combined as Generation 2 payees, realize payouts totaling $317,634 http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-josh-bell-jersey ,173.Sam’s 4 grandchildren, Generation 3 payees all, will realize payouts totaling $494,747,050.Of the 8 great-grandchildren, Generation 4, only 4 will gate paid out any money before the money is exhausted. They will tally $47,839,817.The money starts in 2019, and the money runs out in 2116. That’s 98 years worth of payouts!The Grand Total payouts for Sam and 10 of his descendants is $1,825,235,613. That’s almost two billion dollars.Remember...for one contract, for one person, for 10 years worth of service, for 8 months labor out of each of those 10 years.Now back to perspective, starting (again) with the use of Global Rich List. That first $10,000,000 payout to Sam in 2019, all by itself, immediately makes him among the Top 0.02% of the richest people in the world. After his second payment, he moves up into the far more rarefied air of the Top 0.007%. When he is done, he ends up among the Top 0.0001%.Tommy starts out at age 18 among the 0.56% richest people as of 2019, although by that year 2037 the global numbers will certainly have changed. When Tommy and Tammy expire, they would have been among the Top 0.0003% of the 2019 world’s richest people.Combined, Sam and his heirs will receive as much income as 54,757 median households of modern Germany, a 1st-world industrialized global-leading economy.Combined, Sam and his heirs will receive more income than the 2017 GDP of 30 entire nations (according to the United Nations numbers, Saint Lucia on down to Tuvalu).Combined, Sam and his heirs will receive the same amount of money in payouts, as Forbes estimates Arte Moreno’s entire franchise to be worth in today’s market. And more than 22 other MLB franchises are worth today.Combined, Sam and his heirs will receive the same amount of money in payouts to cover the entire parks, recreation and library budget of the City of Anaheim for 402 years. Combined, Sam and his heirs will receive the same amount of money in payouts to buy a $100 laptop to every man, woman and child in 74 entire countries (from Cyprus on down, not counting The Holy See).Sam is a rare human being. One of only 1400 or so able to demand payment to perform at the levels necessary to compete in Major League Baseball. And his time at that level is short compared to most other careers. His every action of his entire MLB career is subject to super-slow-motion high definition scrutiny and criticism and permanently embedded into the history books of civilization. It’s life under a microscope, intrusive and demanding. And if Sam is good enough, part of his reward is that this level of intrusion and demand remains to the end of his days. You and I don’t qualify. Not even close. Sam is getting what the market, as framed by the system http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-josh-bell-jersey , mandates. It’s Sam’s reward for all that.But, still, $300 million is a hell of a lot of money. As difficult as it has been locking down a position for Nick Senzel, India’s situation could get even trickier."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Farmers onlyFeaturesPlayoffsHistory/Hall of FameWhat position does Jonathan India fit going forward?New,19commentsAs difficult as it has been locking down a position for Nick Senzel, India’s situation could get even trickier.ESTShareTweetShareShareWhat position does Jonathan India fit going forward?Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY SportsFor most of his professional career, the conversation surrounding Cincinnati Reds top prospect Nick Senzel has dealt as much with what position he’ll play on the major league team as it has with how good he’ll be when he gets there. It was evident before he was even drafted that he profiled as the kind of player who could move quickly through the minors, but by the midway point of his first full season of professional baseball, it seemed clear that he wouldn’t be moving Eugenio Suarez off the third base position, where Senzel played for much of his collegiate career. After it was assumed he could shift over to second base, Scooter Gennett’s emergence happened, leaving Senzel with the option of either learning shortstop or moving to the outfield. He suffered a season-ending injury before he had the chance to do either in 2018, and now he’s entered big league camp as the favorite to land the center field spot, with the Reds hoping their prize youngster has stumbled into defensive versatility.Lots of people have taken the time to discuss Senzel’s move to center — from the inception of the idea, to the actual implementation of the experiment, to what it means for the Reds even if it fails. There is absolutely no doubt that his ability to defend that position will be one of the major storylines in Cincinnati throughout the year, and that this season will be a crucial one for Senzel’s development. What has gotten lost in the shuffle, and understandably so, is that this might be an even more important year for the development of 2018 first round pick Jonathan India.India, it seems, gets forgotten a lot these days. He isn’t among the team’s incredibly strong top trio of prospects in Senzel, outfielder Taylor Trammell and right-handed pitcher Hunter Greene. He is also still a couple of years away from the majors, and didn’t produce the flashiest professional debut after he was drafted with the fifth overall pick in 2018. But he is still a very well-regarded prospect, slotting in among or near the top 50 in all of baseball according to most outlets, and a strong season from him in his first full year of pro baseball would be extremely important to the long-term outlook of the organization. Like Senzel, India was drafted as a third baseman who the front office saw as having the potential to move over to a middle infield or corner outfield spot if the need arose. That kind of flexibility could be tested soon, because as he enters his 2019 season, it still isn’t clear which position the Reds ought to develop him at.During his 44-game pro debut across three levels of the minors, India started 33 games at third base, eight at shortstop, and three at DH. He was generally regarded as above average in terms of both his glovework and his arm, doing nothing to dash hopes that versatility in the future would be a solid option.Still, it would probably be more beneficial than not to at least attempt to allow him to get comfortable with one position, and that’s where the Reds find themselves in a conundrum. First, there is the fact that Suarez is locked into the third base position through 2024. If Senzel couldn’t force him off that spot, India won’t either. Gennett’s contract expiring at the end of this season would, in theory, make second base a more winnable spot, but even that position could prove incredibly tricky to lock down. There is the obvious fact that Gennett is openly campaigning for an extension to stay in Cincinnati. If he produces a second-straight four-win season in 2019, and the free agency market continues to drive down the cost of players of his caliber Corey Dickerson Jersey , the Reds could have a difficult time walking away from the opportunity to keep him aboard.Even if Gennett leaves, more questions at second base abound. If Senzel fails to take to center field the way the team is hoping he will, then the keystone will be the obvious landing spot for him to anchor Cincinnati over the next half-decade. And even if he does handle center field well, a move back to second base may still be imminent when Taylor Trammell earns a promotion, something that could likely happen in 2020 and possibly even late 2019. If newly-acquired outfielder Yasiel Puig walks away at the end of the season and the Reds are comfortable operating with an outfield of Senzel in center with Trammell and Jesse Winker in the corners, that would leave second base available for the long-term. But that still relies on the team not wanting to bring back Puig — one of the most marketable players in the game with several prime years remaining in his career — and also relies on the immensely talented Jose Siri not seizing the centerfield spot at any point.This is all very hypothetical, obviously, and the answers to all of these questions will likely work themselves out in time. If Siri never hits, Puig either flops or prices himself out of Cincinnati, Gennett walks and Senzel sticks in center, then India has a wide-open path to the second base position. But we won’t know whether second base is a real option until at least this time next year, and as previously stated, his typical position of third base is almost certainly out of the question. The corner outfield spots are likely claimed, one way or another, for the foreseeable future, and I’m not sure the Reds want to experiment with a career infielder in center field in every spring training.The least complicated path India might have to an everyday starting job in the majors, then, just might be shortstop. That is, after all, where the Reds briefly attempted to develop Senzel during the 2018 spring training, and a position that India has already manned as a professional. It seems that he has the tools to get the hang of it, and if he becomes even average defensively, he would become a clear upgrade over current big league starter Jose Peraza — a young, perfectly capable player in his own right, but not someone who could have India’s Trevor Story-like ceiling at the position.Is it a pertinent thing to worry about right now, with India having yet to play above A-ball? In my mind, yes. It seems unwise for the Reds to continue marching India out at third base when it’s clear he won’t fit there in the big leagues, and it seems equally unwise to try and bounce him around the field and add extra pressure to what will already be a vital year for his development. If they see him as shortstop or second baseman, that decision likely needs to be made soon, and stuck to until India either proves he can cut it defensively at one of those positions, or proves he can’t.These are, as they say, very good problems to have. That the big-league roster is so jam-packed with talent that we’re having trouble projecting where last season’s first round pick might be able to play in two to three years is indicative of the roster appearing to come together in a way it hasn’t in years. And who knows? Maybe India won’t hit enough to maintain his prospect stock this season, and the pressure to get his bat into the lineup as soon as possible could diminish. For now, though, there is all kinds of reason to hope he will produce. That’s what Senzel did, and fortunately for him, a position opened up for him. We’ll see if India is as lucky.
