There’s a very big image attached below. I think it mostly explains itself. I apologize for the poor formatting, but I didn’t care too much to make it that neat. The image contains numerous ways to estimate 7, 8 and 9 year contracts for Albert Pujols. I stuck with a -.5 WAR aging curve. I began with 5.5 WAR, increased it to 6 and then 6.5. I started with a $4.5 million win value and increased it by 5%, 7%, 10% and +0.5 million. See for yourself (click on the image to enlarge it).
