Roy Halladay's All-Star game bonus is more than we'd make in five years
We know we should never make a fuss about the money athletes make. Can't argue with supply and demand, after all. And hey, if it takes the Giants a $200 million payroll to win the World Series, so be it.
But for Roy Halladay to get a $125,000 bonus to pitch in an exhibition game seems a bit extreme. Consider this: Halladay, who will probaly only pitch one inning, will make somewhere in the ballpark of $10,000 a pitch. A nice day's work for something THAT ISN'T EVEN WORK.
But we forget: "This time it counts!"
