A few minor league players have filed a class-action lawsuit against Major League Baseball, primarily complaining that, aside from the few who get large bonuses, they are getting paid a lot less than minimum wage.

They also complain about the draft and other MLB rules, but thats probably going to be covered by the antitrust exemption. They might have something on the pay, though. It doesn't matter if you sign a contract or not, you generally can not pay someone less than minimum wage even if they agree to it.

What a bunch of babies. They're getting paid to play a game they've loved since they were kids, whom any of us would gladly quit our jobs in a heart-beat for a chance to play pro baseball. Have a problem with the money? Get better!

interestingly enough, aside from MLB, Selig, and the MLBPA, the Kansas City Royals are also a named defendant because one of the three players suing baseball is in our minor league system. The other two teams named are the Giants and Marlins.

edit: correction, he (Michael Liberto) used to be in our minor leagues. A current minor leaguer would never dare sue for obvious reasons.

I did some rough math, 6 minor league teams in our system, probably about 150 players, I'm assuming we make them work about 60 hours a week for 7 months and about 20 for the other 5, and assuming we pay them roughly $6,000/year now...

I think we currently pay our minor leaguers about $1MM/year, and the cost to pay them minimum wage would be about $2.5MM/year. So there really isn't much at stake here.

If I was MLB, I'd just settle and make this bad PR nuisance go away. Just pay everyone 1 year of back wages, start paying $7.25 from now on, and move on.

I'm heading up to the morning workout tomorrow.

Any chants/jabs I should yell at the guys? I'm thinking of asking Ned what it will be like to have a real second baseman this year and see what he says.

Keep it good-natured. The 2B one is probably fine. I've never been a fan of heckling at a ballpark.

Lol. Billy barely signed or took picture last year. I got one with him but he acted like it was a huge inconvenience....you know, me and the 10 other fans there.

I agree. I'll ask Hoz if he knows if Dayton and Frenchy will be continuing a long distance relationship.

Hopefully! Getting the wife to go with me tomorrow. Pictures and some balls/bat to get some autographs. I'm actually not sure they will be there but they were on Saturday last year so I'm hoping it's the same. They don't release the workout schedule so I'm just guessing.

Eric Hosmer's rookie contract wasn't for 6K a year. I'm talking about the guys making that amount and wondering if they get a raise for being promoted through the system without making the majors or if they just have to hope to be resigned for more.

Well, thats fine for them, but well over 90% never make it, and end up toiling away for years at less than 3 bucks an hour. Its not going to break the Royals or any other team to pay them minimum wage, I think they should just do it.
