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.

I know guys who did more than that for $204 a month.     :)
