Ben & Meg

Just listened to a pod cast where Ben and meg intelligently discussed Albies contact...telling the truth about the state of player compensation... they used analytical projections to estimate his future performance and converted that to future value... the hosts are what’s great about baseball... This kid will be underpaid... every week ...until he is 30 years old...... I feel bad for him...... he is being force to take less... to provide... for his family... he’s a kid that knows... he will be underpaid... just Incase... he playing days end... with one swing of the bat... like if he running the bases and falls into a hole with a trampoline in it... they were not shaming Ozzie... they were discussing an important issue.. and its affect on the game...

Ben & Meg

Just listened to a pod cast where Ben and meg cried about Albies contract … spitting lies that Albies was a victim and forced by the braves to sign this deal… you guys come up with a fake value on guesstimate future performance on a 22 year old… you guys are what’s wrong with baseball…. This kid will make over 10K a week … every week … until he is 30 years old…… I’m proud of him……… he’s smart… he’s a provider… for his family… he’s a kid that knows a great … lasting impact… of a deal … he knows his playing days can be over with one swing of the bat… like when he fractured his elbow swinging a bat… he loves the game… do not shame Ozzie… do not try to taint his contract … don’t make light of his contract that impacts himself and his family…
