Wave $10-12 million or more in front of me and I'll start loving my fellow employees like never before. In fact, leaving for work might actually be a happy occasion.
Some of the big superstars make more money than a few small countries, the midrange players are makng more money than Hall of Famers from the 60's and 70's made, the low level players are in a much higher tax bracket than any of us will ever see.
When I hear about how "we're having fun" and "we care about each other" and all that nonsense , I just want to vomit.
With the guaranteed contracts, perks and all the comforts of home ( a very nice home!), these guys should complain?...It is enough to make you sick when you hear about how this player is unhappy and that guy is a clubhouse distraction. I mean , if these are that unhappy maybe they should get a real job and find out how the other 99.9% live! Who is forcing them to play a kid's game and get CEO level pay?
I really love hearing about how we have '"unhappy" ballplayers. That is really too much!
