#3 = classic
Then Oakland and Texas could bid to see who gets him for their AAA team.
If you were this type of dude, how long would you wait to sign a lease somewhere? I mean, I'd live out of a hotel for a few weeks, but that's gonna get expensive even on a ballplayer's salary.
I'm more intrigued by the teams. They have a player constantly moving to their division rival. They have to change their signs every time he moves.
There are two teams attempting to stash Rosales on their AAA team. In the meantime he plays nowhere which is pretty crappy for a ballplayer.
Who pays for the travel for a guy like Rosales?
I'd be happy to sit on airplanes all day for $450,000 a year and free front-row tickets to major league baseball games.
Income last year (two incomes) was about $35,000

Memory says that at this point the two GMs talked things out
I'd guess an average of $300 per night for no more than 100 nights, or 30K. You just have to pay for home games, wherever your home game is at certain points of the year. I'd totally do that if I were a journeyman. Especially with the chances part of your season will be spent in the minors, where you'll have to settle for a $50 Motel 6 or something.

I'm of the opinion that the player should get always get a cut of the claiming fee from the waiver process.
