    Can't blame him. Acording to mlb.com he got $3.411 million. I would have done the same and so would you.

    I would have been a Tiger, win a CWS or two and turn that bonus into a lot more along with more salary

    No one ever has or will turn down that amount of money in the mlb draft.

    His parents are well off and all his family are student athletes and college educated. But in the end the money could turn to zero if he busts or gets injured.

    I bet Bregman would advise him differently. He can never come back.

    And if he wants a college education he can still attend classes during a fall aemester or even take classes online. Shaq came back and got a degree.

    the college degree is not really the point. It's the college experience of bitches and baseball and big man on campus you can't buy with money.

    Hes gonna be on a bus staying in a shitty dorm room for 3 years minimum making minimum wage. He will clear about 2 mill after taxes and less once agent takes his 10 percent that's money youll go thru pretty quickly in today's world if not diligent. Anyhow there's no turning back now. Good luck to him.

    I once sold Two Tickets to Paradise guaranteed to get you into heaven on eBay. martin bought them. I can do the same for you for only 10% of all the money you will ever have. It's win-win for everybody. Since the money stops coming in once you die I will pray for the lord to intercede on your behalf to ensure that you live a long life.
