Especially in their situation where"less money" still means more money than god but there is that ego thing with the player and the agent and to them it is just like Monopoly board game money

To be fair, I don’t think BlueStreak or any of us has had to have proactive IV bags of fluids in anticipation of doing our job standing in the sun for 4 hours on a 97* day in August in full catchers gear,  ended up with spinal fusions in our necks, had a wrist or jaw broken by a fastball, or had whatever the fresh hell happened to Aaron Barrett’s throwing arm during rehab. Yes there’s an element of ego but there’s also a real risk of significant injury, and that warrants a higher pay scale than those of us who sit at a desk and poke around on a keyboard all day.
