The money these guys are pulling in is mind-boggling.

I've stopped watching MLB many years ago. I just stick with the farm leagues. It's less stressful to watch and fun for the whole family. Plus, these players are playing their hearts out for far less pay. It's also more affordable for the family, too.

He has plenty of money. He is best to choose the team that is the best fit and chance to win the World Series. Every time I have chosen a job only for money I have been burned.

I'd love to Ohtani on the Blue Jays, but I'd hate to see him disappointed if they end up like the Angels. The Jays have a two year window before most of their studs go to free agency.

@ Chico3 I totally agree I have played and scouted the game at all levels and minor league games are a lot more entertaining with family fun. At the MLB level the players half way hustle because they are already there but to see those young guys busting their butts off just to move from one level of minor league ball to the next is what baseball is all about. Speaking of pay, yes if you didn't get a good signing bonus rounds 1-6 then you are practically on borrowed time.

Looks like he is heading to the Jays.
