If you've ever looked at a spectacular New York City real estate listing with an equally jaw-dropping price, a common response is to wonder who could possibly afford this. One answer might be Max Scherzer: The star pitcher recently signed with the New York Mets in a three-year, $130 million contract that comes to an annual average value of $43.3 million. This deal sets a new salary record for Major League Baseball, beating New York Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole's average annual value of $36 million. (It remains to be seen how the league's lockout, the first work stoppage since the 1994-1995 strike, will affect Mr. Scherzer's Mets debut.)

The New York Post reports that Mr. Scherzer and his family will continue to live in their Florida mansion, which is close to the Mets' spring training facility in Port St. Lucie. However, the new contract puts him in the market for a New York home base and offers the means of procuring an amazing one. From penthouses in Manhattan's most elite buildings to sprawling single-family houses, we take a look at what his contract could buy in New York.

From the Listing: Fabulously situated on a premier block of the Upper East Side's Gold Coast between Fifth and Madison Avenues, this palatial 22-foot wide townhome is the tallest townhome on the block, towering above all the others around it. For 24 years, this majestic limestone mansion served as a family compound for its European owner, affording seven private living areas including the fifth and sixth floors combined as a separate penthouse. This allowed for extended family and close friends to live together under the same roof and yet, living separately with a certain amount of privacy. The home's grand scale and impressive potential to be reconfigured into a full, single family mansion is apparent on each floor's 10 to 13-foot ceilings and extra-wide landing areas. There are twelve working wood-burning fireplaces including two outdoor fireplaces located on the sixth floor and roof terraces. An outdoor lift from the sixth floor terrace ascends to the expansive roof terrace, providing a towering, 360-degree view of Manhattan's skyline. See floor plan and full details here.
