If Miguel is happy and he produces as he says in the article, he will get more than enough money in his lifetime.
Not if he gets injured...this was a very bad move on Miggy's part.
The issue is that he's not in his arbitration years yet. So if he doesn't agree to $470k, the team can pay him whatever they want, down to the minimum for a player with his years of service (certainly less than $470). The players have no leverage until they hit arbitration.
The same thing is happening w/ Duke in Pittsburgh. He is going to refuse to sign his deal for $380k (or whatever it is), but it's only symbolic, because he'll be forced to play for whatever the Pirates decide.
