    He came back and injured his ankle the first game back and has missed the last 3 I think.

    And this is why the G League tells you absolutely nothing about bigs. VP went 6-9 from the field, 1/1 from the line with 14 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocks. 1 turnover. I don't know how accurate the boxscore is because I'm not sure how you get 14 points on 6 2 point FGs and 1 FT...

    Gordon Hayward 2018-2019: I find your lack of faith disturbing.

    It's also the great thing about the 4 year max contract. It's hard to really get anchored down long.

    it doesn't. They can pick 13 players out of 17 to suit up on any given night. Waters would just take Smart's spot.

    Barring something completely unexpected, he's total filler.

    M.L.B. Said to Be Pushing for major Overhaul of Minor Leagues, eliminate up to 40 teams.

    And even if you are right and Brentz made $20 k last year, that proves that even in an open market, a lot of minor league players aren't worth garbage.

    M.L.B. Said to Be Pushing for major Overhaul of Minor Leagues, eliminate up to 40 teams.

    They are getting $80-130k contracts because they are on the fringe of making the majors or have already made the Majors. Bryce Brentz is making closer to $100k than $15k. The minor league players signing ml FA contracts are AAA players who have been around for 6+ years.

    Right from the article: If a player becomes a minor league free agent, higher salaries can be negotiated Most AAA players match that description.

    I haven't seen many players in the DSL make it to the USA in their age 20/21 season. He has that going for him. edit: To clarify, most teams don't bother with DSL players that old.

    And those would be the jobs they are eliminating. AAA players make $82,122 year, AA players $23966. The average minor league salary is $12k/year. That number is driven down by short season players making $1,100 a month and only getting paid 3-4 months a year. Side note: There were 176...

    like 70-75 of those players only have jobs because the MLB can pay them $1100 a month. They have no future as MLB players and there's still plenty of competition in the minors for legit prospects. There's really no point in having 2 short season teams other than they can.
