You do know we're also talking about minor leaguers, too, right?

It's like saying every film/tv actor makes Will Smith money.

Unions exist for a reason. Mantle lost money after having an MVP season, and had one year deals.

I'll always be a union guy.

Hopefully this gets resolved before the start of spring training. 


Edit:  Read the article and it answered my questions.

Major League Baseball Players Association






Is the union that represents players on the 40-man rosters of the 30 Major League baseball teams and oversees MLB Players, Inc., which exclusively represents the group commercial and licensing activities involving active players.

     The MLBPA does not represent the vast majority of minor league guys. The folks on the eight man committe meeting with the owners are all very wealthy. I think the guy with the lowest career earnings has made over $ 50 M in his career. I am sympathetic to labor unions, but I doubt the MLBPA would welcome Mother Jones if she were still walking amongst us.
