getting up on my high horse . . .
jay jaffe from futility infielder:
Damn. Just when I thought I had come around on my opinion of Bonds, he
pulled the rug right out from under me. There's no way of spinning this as anything other than a purely selfish move, a cash grab out of naked greed. Is it within his legal rights to take this action? Yes. But licensing money is a slice of the pie by which all major leaguers are created essentially equal, with their payments based solely on service time (see below), not on star power. Unlike the 25th guy on the Tampa Bay bench, Barry's already got an astronomical salary ($16 mil in 2004) and endorsement opportunities galore in which he can reap the benefits of his prowess.
tell you what, jay, i'll give you a million dollars, or you can give it to your co-workers. what do you choose? hurry up!
i hate it when people get on their high horse.
