Twice All-Star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has agreed to an eye-popping contract extension worth $325 million over 13 years with Major League baseball's Miami Marlins, the most lucrative deal in U.S. professional sport.The mind-boggling move more than triples the previously biggest contract reached by the Marlins – $106 million spread over six years for Jose Reyes in 2012 .A second-round pick by the Marlins in the 2007 MLB Draft, Stanton is one of the most feared power hitters in baseball and, despite playing his home games in the spacious surrounds of Marlins Park, has blasted 154 career homers.
