Boston Red Sox star player Hanley Ramírez is trying to unload his Florida crib for 4 million dollars. It’s a pretty nice pad, and he’s the only one who has ever lived in it.
The Spanish-style abode sports eight bedrooms on one acre. The Dominican-born 34-year-old bought the 9,000-square-foot back in 2008. He was playing for the Florida Marlins, and he paid $3.95 million for the place, which he built from scratch, according to property records. Looks like he won’t make much money off this one.
Fortunately for him, his contract is outrageous. Ramirez signed a 4 year / $88,000,000 contract with the Boston Red Sox, including a $3,000,000 signing bonus, $88,000,000 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $22,000,000.
Not too shabby.
