These are Angel minor leaguers....I would not be very worried.

I didn’t read this whole thread, but here’s what I got... The Angels somehow determined what each player would have made during the season and when the $400 checks totaled that amount they stoppe

I am not even going to go back and figure out who brought up this point, but its a fair point that the “minimum wage” is something that varies by state, so it’s hard to use that as a real barometer.

The Angels are denying it.  So I am going to assume since this is super easy to prove they wouldn’t deny it unless it was false.

Has there been any formal statement made by them somewhere? There are many things that we can get on Arte's case about but this seems like something that would be out of character for him.

I do find the way the Angels worded this interesting. They didn't flat out deny the report, so maybe there are non-contracted players who were counting on stipends to help them through the season? I'm not an expert on how minor leaguers are paid.

I do feel that this is an example of the Twitter mob getting out of hand before all the facts are known, especially if you look at the comments on the tweet. Also I'm not saying that the Angels response closes the book on this, I'm more saying it would be nice to get all the information out there before everyone cancels Arte.

Sounds like some players aren't getting paid. If the original tweet was false the team would've said so, instead they made a second statement that reframes the discussion.

That's what I took from it.

And it looks like Alden's reporting substantiates it. Gotta love that the Angels FO did all the leg work to figure out which players it didn't have to pay an extra 3 or 4 $400 paychecks to.

Also it's a terrible look when an org comes out and says it stopped paying you $400 a week because they already had paid you more than they thought they would've had to.

So the team paid the players everything they were due? 

It sounds like they estimated that number. The big problem here is that they announced they would be paying $400/wk stipends through August, not $400/wk through August for players they would've paid more than $400/wk through August to.
