As we’ve passed over several dozen million dollar contracts these past few days for players I’d wager a plurality of baseball fans have never even heard of, it’s probably worth remembering how the other half live:
Baseball’s minor leaguers are getting a small raise–in the form of meal
money. MLB team owners last week approved increasing minor leaguers’
per diem to $25 from $20.
Now, I’m not sayin’ a fella couldn’t go hog-wild at Taco Bell with that kind of scratch, but it does render the line between the bush leagues and the majors fairly stark, doesn’t it?
