Well, he made something like $170,000 this year. So, yeah they can REALLY fleece him.
"Well, he made something like $170,000 this year."
That's quite a bit more than most folks make. And most folks likely don't get to play at work.
The minimum wage in MLB is $300,000 per year. Mr. Francisco was called up from the minors only this year. I don't know when precisely he was called up, so I don't know what part of the $300,000 MINIMUM WAGE he would have received, if he hadn't committed a felony prior to the end of the season.
His payoff would have been in the future.
If he could have kept himself from attacking fans with a deadly object.
I hope they send him back penniless whence he came.
