Apologies for sounding like a fattist, but we're talking about pro sports and $94M owed to an obese hitter. I'll be shocked if that contract doesn't look absolutely awful in 2-3 years. Cabrera might be worse as he's fat and a drunk.
Marginal Players?
After age 30
Frank Howard- > 40hr 3 times-4 time all star
Tony Gwynn- 9 time all star
Kirby Puckett- 5 time all star
Check their stats after age 30

I forgot about Yogi Berra-7 time all star after age 30
