"Despite all of this, guys are lined up for the job. Not for the Big Bucks, but for the love of the game."
That's why I would call for a draft reform. Reduce the draft round to 25 like NFL. Pay the kids national average salary, maybe $25,000 like a primary school teacher. This $1100/month thing is a insult to everyone who put out the hard work like those minor leaguers did.
