First look at the new logo in the top right I just noticed that.
C.C. Sabathia will get paid 9.5 million before he throws a pitch. Teixeira want 150 million over 10 years so he would get 15 million a year, while teachers don’t get paid anything. So I would like to change and issue a few rules.
A.) Make a limit on how much a team can have. A-Rod gets paid more then the whole Flordia Marlins team. Doing this would let small market teams like the Royals have a chance. Well I guess they do have a chance I mean look at the Rays. Have the Yankees give some of their money to say the Nationals.
B.) Don’t get paid when you are injured or in the offseason. Your not working why should you get paid. When I am sick are taking a vacation I don’t get paid. Why should C.C. or A.J. or anyone get paid when they are not working.
C.) Give bad teams more money and not good teams after the World Series. When the Phillies won it all they got money unlike Baltimore or the Tigers. Yes I think the teams that make the playoffs should get bonuses but not the good teams that don’t make the playoffs, the Yankees, Astros, and, the Twins. Heck you could even say teams above .500 that miss the post season shouldn’t make it.
So there you go Mr. Selig I think I speak for all small market team fans even though I am a Sox fan. Don’t get me wrong I like the advantage of having money but I would like some more teams the Red Sox can have closer games with and not 11 to 1 wins.
