PLN 19

The article written by the Associated Press on the ESPN blog talks about a great baseball player named Bobby Abreu that plays for the Los Angeles Angels just getting a 19 million dollar contract to play for them. I think that it is ridiculous that these players are getting paid so much money. There are people out in this world that do not have anything in their lives; the baseball players make as much money in several games than they will ever in their lives. American government needs to figure out something to help the less fortunate people.

  1. Yeah that is ludicrous. I'm not sure...does Major League Baseball have a salary cap? There definitely needs to be one that is much less. 19 million dollars a year is simply ridiculous as you said. A salary cap should be set in place to stop players and general managers from doing things like this.

  2. I'm a Major League fan, but I do have to admit that it's crazy!! I know Alex Rodriguez receives either $28 million or $33 million. I can't remember which one. But it's outrageous! That amount of money could go towards so much, and granted, some players do donate to charities regularly, but I still see it as wrong, compared to the people living in third world countries.
