It is crazy the team isn't more invested in their minor leaguers.  It is ridiculous, irresponsible, and stupid.

Instead, the need to get Congress to pass the Save America's Pastime Act, which allowed them to pay minor leaguer's below minimum wage.

The name of that bill will forever infuriate me.

Typical.  Name the bill the opposite of what it is so people think Congress is doing the right thing.

I remember an interview with Eloy where he talked about how much he missed Dominican rice and beans in Birmingham, and then an article a little later where James Fegan ran into him in the Waffle House down there. 

It would cost ,what, 100-200 grand to cater every game? 

Guys, how about baseball worries about paying minor leaguers a living wage before we worry about catering food to them year round?

I like where your heads at, but starting with the basics (like a competitive wage) should be the main priority.

There is no doubt the teams need to raise the minor league standard of living though. You are correct on the general topic.

Giving them all just an extra 1000 each for the 6 months would do wonders.

Ding ding. Players eat like shit because they're paid like shit... and they're kids. The elite players already have access to nutritionist and dietitians - Robert certainly does. 

Hes a kid though and being able to eat whatever you want is almost part of that age group and development. It's not very important at 22 but becomes important for staying healthy and etc as you enter your late and early 30s.
