Yanks pay now, worry later
Baseball's different, though. There's no particular number that must be achieved. You'll make more money if you hit 35 home runs than if you hit 25, but if you hit 25 you can still play. Everybody wants a starting pitcher who can throw 95 miles an hour, but there are plenty of guys in the majors who need a stiff tailwind to crack 90.
