How outrageous are the Dodgers players salaries?
World Series = Pay Cut
Winner - $385,000 each or $55,000 per game
Loser - $225,000 each or $32,150

Dodgers salary average $62,000 per game
Astros $30,500

You'll see that change considerably as of last night......as a life long Dodger fan going way back to Brooklyn "Congratulations Astros".....you earned it !!!

Not right away you won't.

You did notice how many of next years contracts have automatic escalation clauses for each year....as I said, salaries will be going up even without renegotiated contracts and free agency.
