I’m a career military guy. I can imagine 

I would be consoled by League Minimum.

Imagine making 7 million a year

I imagine being traded would be tougher if you were gay, right laagaymer?

LOL, he left himself open for that.

It's like you won't let me forget about Bixby Knolls when I happened to mention once that it was a hot day there.

He should lighten up and go with it. Life is too short to be taken too seriously.

or like 95% of professional ball players - 25k and bus rides to work.  

And free food, and medical care.  Plus you get to pick a wife from about a few thousand adoring candidates, or pick none at all and get to sleep with about the same number.

And they are especially skilled.  That's why they get paid more! And they should be paid that be abuse they ate especially skilled!

The average worker in USA are not that special in their work skills.

Right, you deserve what the market dictates. So why on Earth do you feel bad for ball players?

I think you are missing my point, so I will move on

Read the F'n content of the post! It's not hard to figure out.  Someone who dreams of a WS championship is traded from the Astros to the Marlins.  If you cant figure it out I am sorry!

I understand why players get paid more than me... nobody buys tickets to watch me work and my work day is never televised.

That's because a lot of the jobs that required special skills were sent overseas by corporations.

Why develop special skills when the job market doesn't reward you?

Our latest economic "upturn", and the resulting tight job market, is the same as the last three or four. Lots of low-paying service jobs. Manufacturing in the US continues to slide.

Computers are made overseas. Phones are made overseas. Cars are made overseas. Appliances are made overseas. About the only growing job industries in the US that require special skills are health care and, marginally, construction. And probably 80% of construction jobs can be learned in a week.

A political/economic comment out of nowhere.
