It's only $1M. He could end up being cut loose, if it doesn't work out.
I wish I could afford to just cut loose of a million. Hell, I wish I had a million TO cut loose. Kind of keeps things in perspective.
Yeah! Good point. It just amues me the way most posters talk about throwing millions of dollars around like it's monopoly money....when most probably never made a fraction of it over their lifetime.
I've come to the conclusion that many posters are in some fantasy mode and completely delusional....completely lost touch with reality.
You need to put things in context. Yes, $1 million is a lot of money to you and me, but in context of the Red Sox payroll and budget it's relatively nothing.
$1 million is less than 1 percent (about .59 percent) of the Sox payroll. And if you're talking about revenue that the Sox make, it's considerably less than .59 percent.
Roy, Well....I guess I really shouldn't say, but with good investment and hard work, I've got my share of comfort, but it doesn't discount the fact how people throw around these figures like they were pennies...tremendous Red Sox payroll or not. It's just crazy. For some pathetic souls, like tvfrank for example who salivates on worthless sarcasm, it's just a release for them from their mundane, frustrating lives.
