my big argument with this is baseball is a non physical sport. he is way over paid. if i was paying a baseball player it would be -$900,000.00 a year cuz they waste so much time where better things could be on tv.

people that say that is too much need to look at all american sports such as baseball, football and basketball. they are more grossly over paid for the number of minutes they put in a game

You want to owe him 900k to play baseball?

I've got a bridge to sell you and my uncle is a Nigerian prince that is trying to unload diamond money you just have to send me $500 to verify your account.

...and I thought little league was getting steep at $300 for a season


I think across the board, every professional sport, players and teams management should cut their salaries in half and then cut the price of tickets by 1/3. Season tickets for any team in any sport shouldn't be over 5k at the cheapest. I'm not suggesting box level, but 300 level seats should not start at 15k. But it likely won't change as even the Sabres (dead last in NHL last season) have a waiting list for season tickets, so people are willing to buy them.
