    Ingram wins the Heisman.

    Hopefully it won’t curse the big game the way it sometimes does.

    Suh is a BEAST. He and Gerhart were worth watching games just to see them.

    I thought the rookie minimum was 250,000..whatever, I’m sure it’s changed.

    Not my theory, but I agree that a player will always be paid on the current/going price for the best stats he produced in his career. In other words, a player who puts up big numbers in a given year will forever be seen as a guy who can duplicate that. So teams pick him up and pay him the going rate, assuming he will do it again. It’s kind of an insane way of doing business. Sometimes it even works!

    Well guys,
    During Fehr’s tenure as Executive Director, player salaries have increased more than tenfold. In 1983 (the last year before Fehr became Executive Director), the minimum salary for a Major League Baseball Player was $35,000 and the average salary was $289,000. This year (2009), the minimum is $400,000 and the average is more than $3.3 million

    Any other questions? Yes, I am the answer queen.

    $400,000 indeed. Get hired, play a year and retire! I’m working on my slider right now!

    Here Answer Queen:

    If a rookie is brought up to the Majors in season 1, but in the offseason doesn’t make the MLB team, does he make 400,000 in season 2. Answer please and thank you

    No, he does however get a free set of steak knives. Just kidding. I have no idea but Bub probably does. What say you Bub?

    Jurrjens4NLCY Says:

    Connor Robertson of the Mets, brought up in 2008, paid 400,000. In 2009, went to AA and AAA, made 400,000.

    Can you imagine the disappointment of missing out on those steak knives. A person would need some serious therapy!

    I’ve just listened to back-to-back-to-back Car Talk episodes. My face is sore from smiling.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Leah, I don’t know that stuff. It was a miracle if any of the rules I explained the other day were even right. (I know some of it was wrong; for example, June 1st should have been June 16th. Or 15th. Something.)

    But it’s neat that I’ve got you fooled. 8)

    I’ve got a $3-a-day Car Talk habit. Is there a support program?

    How can anybody be so consistently funny on their feet as those guys?

    “In 2008 Terry Pendleton decided that he didn’t want Kelly Johnson (and I quote/paraphrase), “looking at so many called 3rd strikes”, so he messed with his approach a bit, which resulted in a lower walk rate.”

    I remember this exact moment and screamed about it then. One of my favorite things about Kelly was watching him work a walk after a two-strike count. He wasn’t a guess-swinger. He had the eye, like Chipper.

    Then along comes Terry Pendleton. The same do-do who didn’t want to “take away Francoeur’s aggressiveness” DID want to take away Kelly’s patience.

    Kelly will prove the Pendleton Problem some year soon.

    Thanks for the article, Leah. I had almost accidentally calmed down.
