I am quite certain they are, or will be, financially compensated by MLB. If not, what's the point?
Agreed. Jerry Reinsdorf managed to get the state to build him a stadium at taxpayer expense where his lease rate decreases when attendance falls below a certain number. And payroll is always dictated by revenues, and we continue to play highly paid veterans even after it is apparent to everyone else that they are done, like Castillo and Jay. Do we really think hes losing money on the Iowa game?
The universe is the practical joke of the General at the expense of the Particular, quoth Frater Perdurabo, and laughed. The disciples nearest him wept, seeing the Universal Sorrow. Others laughed, seeing the Universal Joke. Others wept. Others laughed. Others wept because they couldn't see the Joke, and others laughed lest they should be thought not to see the Joke. But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.
