    I would say if you have a batting average around 270 you are producing the goods yearly in baseball

    That's terrible

    NBA players basically hit 320 every year, 34 hrs and 110 RBI's if you compare each sport

    A guy like Harper makes tons of money and any minor leaguer making 100K can do basically same thing if he played daily

    There are tons of Harpers too that are average based off salary

    Baseball playoffs is fun. Thats about it

    baseball laziest players in all sports. Ground balls or pop outs they barely run.

    strike out or home run mentality

    MLB baseball players are paid off past performance when they were underpaid. Owners get young players cheap and then overpay older players because they are not smart enough to know when a player is going to decline. It is part of the bargain. If you just have one-year contracts, you can get it right.

    Yeah, MLB players are basically 50% free throw shooters, won't shoot three and they average less than 1 point, 1 rebound, 1 block and 1 steal per game each.

    And they never get dunks.

    I believe his career year was his rookie year and he’ll never live up to it

    It is part of the deal. Part of the reason they are paying them so much on long-term deals is they are saying: "OK, we know you were underpaid so we will give you this for this long if you sign with us." They just wind up paying it on the back end.

    Just the facts JACK. If you take the time to read.

    Hitting a baseball is the hardest skill to pull off in sports. Here’s why.

    Is this a joke? At least the MLB guys play every night. 162 games. NBA players play zero defense and half of them sit for “rest” so they can rub their pussy and flex their new chain on the sideline.

    Anyone can hit a free throw but not many can hit the ball out of the infield and make it to first base. Baseball is much harder.

    I'll agree with that I think the pro baseball plateua is tougher to reach than that of basketball.

    But based in the amount of work they do, I just think MLB players are vastly overpaid

    Most MLB player should make is maybe 5 million

    Tons Latins players can do same thing in big leagues but not allowed because GM's would lose their jobs sitting Harper to play better play in minors

    This is every team

    NBA players get paid to go through the motions and play the last five minutes.
    MLB plays nine or more innings.

    You don't do anything in baseball. You can be 300 pounds and be a top baseball player. The most you do is run a 40 yard dash lol. Basketball players run 500 40 yard dashes per game.

    Curry runs like 3-4 miles every game. Those aren't jogging 4 miles, those are sprints.

    7 billion people on the planet

    Less than 20,000 of them have ever made the roster of a MLB team

    That’s why they get paid a lot (most have a 4-5 year career where they never make more than $500K a year).

    Oh and I forgot hitting a 98 mph fastball. It’s kinda difficult

    Stand in the field, get a ball hit to them now & then, sit in the dugout, go to bat 3-4 time per game.

    Don't get me wrong many MLB players are just as good or better athletes as NBA, NFL, etc, but they take the east way/sport out.

    Baseball not a big difference minor leaguers compared to big leaguers as far as hitting and fielding

    Many 100K guys can do the same thing as 10 million guys

    Other sports big difference

    Also pitchers and catchers tough positions but that is it

    Trout one of only modern players who deserves the money
