Ted Turner, or rather his GM, signed Al Hrabosky to a similarly long-term contract which I believe just recently ran out...of course, that was a few years prior to and quite a bit of money less than the Bonilla pact.

Yup. Here's some detail:

Terms were not disclosed but Hrabosky said the agreement includes deferred payments. It has been estimated those payments will total $5.9 million over 35 years.

Hrabosky indicated a verbal agreement with Braves owned Ted Turner allows for the colorful left-hander to work for Turner's WTBS cable television station as a sportscaster when his playing days are over.

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.
