Not sure about betting against Mike (my nephew), he's pretty good.

I have no problem betting against Rutager.

Hey Alex, maybe I'll come to KC for the barbeque, and catch a game if I have time.

I hope he likes it there!

And I hope he's putting some of his income away for post-major-league days. Do they have any retirement benefits?

John, have him quit the baseball gig and go work at your shop. Very steady work due to the stress-free environment of not much going on there....

I don't know, Peter.

The pay sure fluctuates wildly, from astronomical when on the active roster, to pretty meager when not. They do move some of them back and forth, which isn't a good situation for financial planning.

From what I've seen his life style hasn't changed much. His dad is very good with financial matters, and a strong influence on him, so I'm sure he'll be fine.
