    The answer is yes and so too do sports agents....When you're making 10M to 20M per year...I think you can afford to spend moneys on a good sports phycologist.

    The MLBPA is strictly about getting paid more money they they provide in production value. See GM bankruptcy and soon to be another bankruptcy. As for player problems, Grienke should use some of his owm rip-off labor profits to get a Bible.

    Because reading a Bible is always the best thing to promote mental health.

    A lot of it is on a team-by-team basis. If nothing else, they're trying to protect their investment. The Red Sox have Bob Tewksbury for such a role.

    Without baseball "labor" there is no professional baseball. Baseball labor would only be be over-valued if fans stopped following the game and supporting it financially.

    The compensation given to CEO's of large corporations that go bankrupt is a better example of over-valued labor. Management jobs are also an example of labor without the labor.

    Big Labor is the game. Fans pay to see players labor.  Labor=product. No labor, no game. Case closed.

    Alinsky felt reading Marx was the best "thing" to promote mental health.

    The MLBPA provide nothing. The fans pay for "their benefits".

    Big Labor unions make corporations go bankrupt, as was the case with GM. Big labor is part of organized crime and is still whining about pay and working conditions like it's 100 years ago. The Democrat Party is still running on ginning up pride and predudice from angry and bitter minorities, women and people who are jealous that they don't have the money that "the rich" have. Like you, which explains your entire taking up space life.

    My heroes are the founding fathers. Your hero is tiny minds like the current demagogue who is owned by Chicago Big Labor and the tenets of Ayers and Alinsky rules for radicals.

    Nothing would be better than having the Congress deny the desperate reveneue seeking feds default on their entitlement promises, which will happen in short order even if they nationalize all private poperty owned by "the rich". Either way, Wilson, FDR, 1964 Great Society is going to collapse harder than Greece. What will emerge will not be what Woodstock hippies running federal education had in mind.

    People like you are the reason the GOP has strugged. You and the rest of fringe are killing a once great party about individual freedom by making freedom only about the relationship between a business and government. Things like legalize of marijuana, gay marriage, and abortion should be something the GOP should run since the belief was you know what do to with your body better than the government. The Tea Party will now disenfranchised by the GOP about two years too late. On the down side the Libertartian Party will be hurt by an strong main stream GOP. BTW the founding fathers were overwhelmingly deist not Christian. Where is Christ ever mentioned by a founding father?

     

    The real reason players make the money they do is pure capitalism. Owners are bidding against them to get the best product. Remember in sports the players are the product, you the thing you sell to your customers? The problem is that the owners act like college kids with credit cards.

    Re: Major League Baseball/Players Union.

    I'm about fed up with player's unions...and hearing about them.

    The owner/player negotiations between NFL owners and player should have alienated the fans as it showed absolutley no interest in whether or not the fans would stop tuning in. Perhaps they were right the whole of NFL fans are such sheep they could fling feces at them and they would still come back for more. I am a casual fan...or was. I can't be bothered to watch a sport where owners and players argue about their share of a humongous pie, and bicker about who should get the bigger slice at the expense of depriving their real fans of enoying what they call entertainment. Thankfully I am not a diehard and heav decided to live without football...so far , so good, I haven't watched an NFL game sine 2010.

    The owner/ player relations in the NHL , along with too much expansion to non-hockey markets has ruined this sport. There simply are not enough talented star players to fill the rosters of 30 teams. I loved this league when the players played for less and some desire to win, when the league had loads of talent , in the 80s. Now it is an exercise in futility. The salary cap was the final straw. Now, you can watch hundreds of overpaid , talentless thug play in passionless places like Florida and Phoenix and know that the Stanley Cup winner will never be able to repeat beacuse of a Salary Cap....if they don't have a lockout that destroys the whole season. Really, there is no loss here. This league is virtually dead. Good Riddance, thanks for killing a great sport.

    MLB will be next to destroy a sport that is already heading down the path of shameless greed. I already have lost so much interest that I fall asleep aroung the 5th inning most of the time. thes epeople want more and more money for a product that is getting less and less entertaining and more watered down.

    Soon all that will be left will be NASCAR. The only sport left that does not forget the fans. This years champion , Brad Keslowski , in his post championship interview made a point of thanking the fans and emphsizing how the sport could not exist without them. We need more kids like Brad Keslowski in baseball, footbal , hockey ( and probabaly basketball ...but I wouldn't know about that).

    I suspect many MLB players suffer from anxiety,  but Zack Greinke stands out because 1) his anxiety has been formally diagnosed, and 2) the diagnosis has been made public.

    Closed shop labor unions are not "pure capitalism". The real reason players make the money they do is they run a closed shop. They provide no finanical capital in an anti-trust exempt business.

    The destruction of this Nation into the arms of financial ruin is the desire to redistribute financial capital without ownership or risk of capital investment.

    People like you are the reason the GOP has strugged.

    The reason the GOP has struggled are because of losers like you and the party leadership that tried to stop Ronald Reagan on the basis that "moderate" is the way to win elections against the identity politics pandering entitlments Democrat Party. Every year, you losers keep repeating "Scott Brown, Mitt Romey, John McCain, Bob Dole, Gerald Ford" are the kind of moderates that win general elections.

    The reality is that all national elections come down to a tiny segment of the electorate. When there is no clear contrast on social and economic public policy, the Democrat Party will win every single election. There are no bigger losers and frauds than "moderate" Republicans.

    You and the rest of fringe are killing a once great party about individual freedom by making freedom only about the relationship between a business and government.

    It's about the Constitution, you mental midget. States have the right to pass laws regarding social institutions and behavior. The federal government does not have the authority to do anything not expressly set forth in the Constition, as all other authority is reserved to the States.

    Things like legalize of marijuana, gay marriage, and abortion should be something the GOP should run since the belief was you know what do to with your body better than the government.

    It's not "gay marriage", you mental midget, it's "same-sex marriage". The States have full Constitutional authority to license marriage, but the federal government has zero authority to do so.

    Marriage is a word with a history that is perverted by "same-sex" marriage. It's a religious institution that the States recognized along with many other Judeo-Christian moral values. See fornication, sodomy, murder, larceny, etc. They didn't come from secular activist federal judges who violate their Constitutional authority as part of their ideologial mission.

    The Tea Party will now disenfranchised by the GOP about two years too late.

    The Tea Party is a grass roots movment that was responsible for the GOP winning the majority in the House, just two years ago, you mental midget.

    On the down side the Libertartian Party will be hurt by an strong main stream GOP.

    "Main stream" and "reach out" are spineless euphemisms for "populism" and "deliver entitlements and legal reforms based upon federal ethnic, gender and economic group class identities. That nearly the entire Nation engages in a narrative that assumes this the high moral ground, it speaks to how pitiful, prideful and ignorant the masses have become.

    BTW the founding fathers were overwhelmingly deist not Christian. Where is Christ ever mentioned by a founding father?

     

     In fact, the founding fathers were Christians. George Washington is "The Founding Father". Jefferson and Franklin and deism is where the Leftist intellectual fraud propaganda is based. Deism isn't a religion, it's a philosophy based on reason, and the founding fathers who were "Deists" belived in God but believed that God did was not a supernatual force in what God created (Pre-Destination). They were all members of Judeo-Christian protestant religious demoniations. 

    The notion that the founding fathers "weren't Christians" is a bugaboo that uses the intellectual dishonesty of taking the writings on reason and religion of a minority of the founding fathers as the basis for a secular based philosophy on man, government, moral values and nature.

    You realize Washington was a member of the Anglican church almost solely for the social standing it granted him? You also realize most of these men were Anglican or Congregationalist? You really rewriting history here if you want to claim this country was founded as a Christian nation. A godly nation yes.  The Tea Party really helped Todd Akin... Todd Akin helped Brown lose by making the GOP seem crazy. This is not the same party that nominated Bush Sr and is even quite distant from the one that nominated Bush Jr.

    The closed market of sports helps the owners. It really hurts the players. it makes impossible to open a alternative league. See USFL, and the Federal League. If there was another league availible that players could freely join salaries would go through the roof. They choose to pay the players. We choose to pay the owners to watch the players. While Free Agency allowed the players to get paid the owners choose to pay them. The NBA is so bad that they make new rules every year to bailout bad owners. You should sign up for a ECON class and a US History class at your local community college.
