The MLB labor dispute over money between the Players Association and the owners just further exposes the absurdity of professional sports in general when it comes to annual salaries and wages. Baseball has the lowest average starting annual salary of all the pros. It is over half a million dollars. The owners are richer than we can imagine. All the msm cares about is the average person being deprived of their national pastime. Does the average person, including the people in the concession stands, the grounds keepers, etc. have that kind of average starting annual starting salary or wage? Hmmm…
