It may depend somewhat on what the Dodgers charge and how successful they are.

How many Billions of Dollars did MLB make last year? Each year it goes up, so each year the players want to be paid more.

And they should be.

From an article on grantland.com today: "we've gone from 62 percent of MLB revenue going to salaries a decade ago to just 42 percent today. That's thanks in part to revenue streams simply soaring too fast for salaries to possibly catch up, but also partly due to the whole notion of value/Moneyball/whatever you want to call it."

Considering the strength of the union, I'm surprised there's not a guaranteed revenue split built into the collective bargaining agreement.

Even the NBA union manages that. Although I think the players' percentage went down quite a bit during the last lockout.

Forbes estimates that MLB revenue for 2013 was 8 Billion plus!

The Astros have only one player above $1M and the team will have made $99M in revenue. Nice profit margin there!

Also you don't lock a guy up after 1 year.

Smart teams lock up good players as soon as they can.

We are not a smart team.

We sure haven't been so far. I still have hope.
