    Dude, has nothing to do w/ liking your answer - it's just that you are incorrect. Or maybe I was not clear enough - annual average salary. There - how's that?

    I don't care about salary cap issues or bonus $, blah blah blah. I'm talking YEARLY salary (I think I said per year didn't I?).

    And you seem to completely OVERVALUE said time's worth in the whole grand scheme of things.. it's a freakin' game. No one is worth it. Period.

    Umm, he will not sign that again?? I would hope not - seeing as how this contract will take him into his 40's when he'll be producing about 1/2 as much as he now -- if that.

    Oh, unless he goes Bonds' route, hehe..

    A game? Yes... but you also should realize this is a job as well. If you are not good at your job, you get shuffled a side. Saying a Athlete isn't worth it is kind of asinine seeing as you are a SPONSORED athlete.

    Again, you are picking out one person when the majority of baseball salary is paid out at the minimum $390,000.

    And by the way - that original $252 mill contract was doled out to him by the Texas Rangers, not the Yanks, in like 2002.

    He opted out of it, so he could sign a new contract with Yanks - last winter btw - that will average some $27 mill yearly by the time it's over.

    So don't think baseball's problem is just Yankees & Boras.

    Again, I never seen it as a problem. Being on the road over half the year away from family is tough, mentally and physically. Having to play a night game one night, then fly from one coast to the other and play a day game is not the easiest thing.

    I find they deserve it, if I could do the things any athelete on the field could, then damn right I would like to be rewarded for my talent.

    Yup. I should be quiet.. I'm trying to get that extra $5 mill outta Jacob right now myself.. don't wanna hinder my chances at that..

    You know that's why USP's charging what they do for those supps.. so they can pay my salary! Ya got me..

    Again, you are picking out one person when the majority of baseball salary is paid out at the minimum $390,000.
    Umm.. the average baseball salary is $3 mill per year.

    Very few players are making the MLB minimum - rookies & the like who have no arbitration rights. This is but a very brief period in their careers.

    I'm done here man.

    I love sports - all sports. Love playin' em, love watchin' em.. but ain't supportin' em no more.

    I'll leave it to you to justify this ludicrousness.

    I'll leave it to guys such as yourself to keep the $ in these guys' pockets.. I'll just sit back and catch the waves..

  7. If I had it to do over again, I would be an agent. On another note how bout paying 15-20 dollars just to park your car at some stadiums. I grew up going to Yankee and Shea stadiums, TV works just as well these days.

    You are throwing a fit over nothing man. This is a friendly debate. I only said the part about being a sponsored athlete because you lumped all atheletes in the same category, bar none.

    It is the higher player salary like A-Rod that is balancing it to the 3 mil. If you look at a teams roster, most make near the minimum.

    All in all its a pastime, and I love each game... well maybe not soccer.

    I will keep lining their pockets brother, so you can sit back and watch it all unfold.

    Huh?

    The only part I recall even remotely "lumping" athletes together about was in saying no one is worth A-Rod money.
    And no one is.

    Not true, in fact conversely so. Each ML team is lucky if they have a handful of guys making the minimum.

    All in all its a pastime, and I love each game... well maybe not soccer.
    Okay.. here we can agree.
    Some good athlete's out there tho, hella running going on..

    Works for me bro.

    I hear ya. So was the little 15" souvenir bat I bought my kids.

  14. It was a great experience to have a dog and a beer at the park but the prices associated with it is just too damn crazy.

  15. No doubt.

    Call me a pessimist, but I just think it's a shame how simple things like taking your kids out to ballgames have become a way to make others rich. I went to old Tiger stadium couple times a year every year when I was growing up, and my parents weren't exactly sitting on the bucks back then. I can only imagine what Fastone experienced back when he was a kid..

    Now, everything "entertainment" has turned into big business, somebody's big profit.

    Ah, gotta love these times in which we live..

  16. Saw a movie last night with the wife, a 1991 flick with John Travolta (terrible btw) called "Eyes of an Angel", and this one scene had a gas station in it, showing the price sign for gas. Premium was like $1.09, regular .94 or something like that..

    Made me laugh.

    We're talking 1991 here guys..

  17. Damn, start talking about gas prices & kill the thread.. oops.

    I remember complaining about $1.47 gas during the Gulf War. Man, what was I thinking?? I do however also remember gas at less than 50 cents prior to the 2 gas situations in 73 and 79 (lol).
