A-Rod will make $28 Million this year playing for the Yankees, more than the entire team payroll of the Florida Marlins (quick, name 2 players on that team) -- or roughly enough to keep all of Community Medical Centers operating for two weeks.
Steroids, ticket prices, the cost of garlic fries and stadium parking, millionaire players pretending like their sweat doesn't stink (and should be sold on Ebay). There are lots of reasons to mock/ignore baseball. There are also reasons to celebrate it. Anybody who's seen the movie "Sandlot" knows that.
