DamnYankees: Beerguy: bigpeeler: Screw professional sports. Seriously. The money is out of control. So are the agents. Oy vey.


You know that there are all kinds of conversations taking place with the blue collar folks that work at the ball parks like, "well, there isn't money in the budget for anything more than a 2% raise and we going to have to increase the amount coming out of your check for insurance".

Yeah, because your are paying ONE GUY OVER 30 MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!!!

So you both support the people who own the Dodgers making this money instead? Management over labor?

I guess you didn't read into my statement very well.

You don't see the other option?

How about something like this:   Lets say they pay him 10 mil a year (still ridiculous) instead of 30, and lets say they take that other 20 mil and distribute it to all of the people who work for the Dodgers. So, the groundscrew, the custodians, the concessions people, etc. get a nice raise.

Is that not an option?

Pencil in 2016 for when we get to start gloating over the Dodgers paying 30 mil a year to a guy with a blown-out arm and a 12-15 record.
