Basically no Howard does not deserve that kind of deal yet, not because he hasnt earned it but because thats not baseball. In baseball you do your time, then you get rewarded, and boy do you get rewarded. You suffer your first few years making less than you should, but after that you get paid like in no other sport, and its all guaranteed cash, so even if you pull a Pat Burrell, that money is in the bank. Pujols only got 1 mil when he was at this stage, and that was a record, and Pujols is a more complete player than Howard, and Gillick said that Howard was due for about a 1 mil raise, which is an indication that once Howard reaches the "reward" stage, Chase Utley's 7 year 75 mil will be eclipsed, and yes, he will deserve it
