But in recent years we've seen contracts given to big leaguers get bigger and bigger. Once Mike Trout and Bryce Harper reach the free agent market, you can bet that the Giancarlo Stanton deal will no longer be the biggest in MLB history.
And naturally people are bitching and moaning about how major leaguers are getting paid too much. Not knowing that baseball generates a ton of revenue and that that revenue was generated by the players themselves and how they probably deserve a big chunk of money for that. Also completely forgetting that we live in a world were inflation exists and a dollar from yesterday is worth less than a dollar from today.
I would offer my two cents on athletes and their salaries, but this A Dose Of Buckley represents my opinion perfectly.
Just watch it. A Dose Of Buckley may be comedic but like all good comedy, it's based on truth.
Look, at the end of the day I'd rather have the money I spend on tickets and whatnot go to the players who are THE reason I enjoy baseball in the first place than the owners. In other words, give all the money to A-Rod and keep as much of it away from Steinbrenner's wallet as possible.
As always thanks for stopping by and take care :).
