That comes out to just under $14,000 an inning based on 162 games a year at 20 million a year.
A young man making more than $120,000 for a day’s work is stupid.
Remember how much he makes when you see him ground out or reach for the $20 peanuts.
Ask yourself if you feel sorry for him if he slumps?
How much do you have to work to pay to take your family to go to a game to support him and his agent ?
The love of money... He could have stayed a Royal had he wanted to.
Instead he chose money... make no mistake about it.

The Royals weren't offering him exactly peanuts either.
He just wanted out.

So? That’s The American way! You have a problem with capitalism pal? You would do the same damn thing if the roles were reversed. If you say you wouldn’t, you’re a liar! P.S.only idiots buy the peanuts out there. Everyone knows you bring your own.

Good for Hosmer, who was instrumental in bringing two World Series to K.C. Good for the Royals, who erase any doubt about committing to a full rebuild, and will get coveted early round draft picks to rebuild toward a 2020-22 push for post-season play.
If you resent premium athletes making premium money, excel at whatever your chosen field is and earn what you yearn. American ideals include freedom to choose and freedom of speech, but you are responsible for all that resentful whining. It just shows you can't produce to back up all your talk.

Forever Royal. It’s just a marketing slogan. Placeholder for the next slogan that keeps taxpayers forever paying on stadium for uber-rich.
