Giancarlo Stanton is rich. You and I are not. 

Perhaps this explains why we weren’t slamming $20,000 champagne and presumably playing high-stakes ostrich polo with Stanton inside a Miami nightclub this week.

TMZ reports that the Miami Marlins outfielder celebrated his new, $325 million contract at Miami’s Delano Hotel Monday night. He schmoozed, took pictures with fans and uncorked a bottle of champagne worth roughly the tag price of a Dodge Dart.

Stanton cracked the top on a $20,000 bottle of Moet Nectar Imperial Rose Methuselah Leopard Luxury Edition—a rare, six-liter bottle wrapped in 22-carat gold leaf. It cures shingles...or just tastes really good. 

TMZ’s report alleges that Stanton was out until 3 a.m. Tuesday morning in the company of a “well-known Miami party queen” named “Julz.” This woman supposedly purchased him the bottle of high-quality leopard wine.

So no, the new owner of the most lucrative sports contract in American history did not pick up the check. He’ll have the rest of his natural life to bear that cross. We’ll give him his final freebie.
