Sometimes I think money stops being money to athletesand it is more a measure of skill level. Albert Pujols is the best baseball player in the world so of course he should make the most money, but at what point is it about acknowledgement over money. --Phil Wood at

Some fans get very angry when their teams waste money, but why? Some reasons might be they don't like seeing their investment wasted, they just don't like stupidity, or they feel it will take away from other aspects of building a team. --Daniel Moroz from

What would a baseball stadium in Arlington, Va look like? --William Yoder at
