Bottom line, with what has happened to Brown and lots of other players before him and will happen to after him, this is just another reason why when these guys hold out for more money as draft picks or go for the last dollar in free agency, it is why I have zero problem with it provided their intentions were not stated otherwise and they didn't deceive anyone. Once they sign with a team, they are more or less screwed by teams with horrible pay and are at the mercy of the team with roster decisions for the next several years of their career. For the average player who makes it to the big leagues and reaches free agency, he would likely have played four years in the minors making $1200 a month (only in-season), then when he gets to the big leagues makes $400K for the first three years before finally seeing big money once the arbitration years kick in. In all, it can take a player six to nine years before he is ever really "paid". This is why the decisions made by the front office in how they are moved in the system is so important to them because it is their livelihood and they are living off nothing for many years and just scraping to get by.In the end, my whole agenda when writing about these guys has always been to keep things in a positive light. If a pitcher or hitter is struggling, instead of berating them I instead try to soften it up a bit and give constructive criticism or explain what they are working on to get better. Just try and find something positive that they are currently doing. Some may view that as being homerish, but considering all the BS these guys go through with the whole lifestyle, crappy pay, and dealing with the organizations themselves, the last thing they need is some guy going tabloid on them digging for dirt and trying to be the National Enquirer.I understand the Indians reasoning for not calling up Brown, and can live with it. But, I still think he should be in Cleveland and he was more than deserving of the call up.
