bbc.com – Giancarlo Stanton has agreed the most expensive ever deal in United States sport by signing a £208m ($325m) 13-year contract with Miami Marlins. The new contract for the 25-year-old represented “a landmark day” for Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria. The value of the deal makes it a record, although the £187m ($292m) 10-year contract signed by Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera is worth more annually. Stanton has hit a total of 154 home runs in five Major League seasons.
