Momma’s, Please Let Your Boys Grow Up To Be MLB Ball Players

I wish I had some thing good to say tonight about the Cardinals & their just concluded series vs the F’Ing Royals. The starting pitching was really good. There, that’s the only good thing I can say about the Red Birds. So instead of rehashing that mess, and looking forward to the fun that awaits the Cards in F’ing bean town this weekend, I’m going to post the top 50 career earners in MLB history. And I urge each and every one of you parents, aunts & uncles out there, to ever so gently, (I SAID GENTLY PEOPLE!!!!) push your sons towards a career as a MLB player. I ran across this list by accident looking for some thing else at Baseball Reference, and I just had to post it. I have two nephews, and HUGE has NATE DOGG, so of those kids is going to make it to the show. I guarantee it. And once I post the list after the jump, you’ll understand why. It’s jaw dropping the amount of coin these guys have made. I am literally stunned at some of the name on this list. There are some guys on here that are truly average players. But the amounts they’ve earned during their careers is simply stunning. And guess what folks? The salaries are only going higher & higher & higher & higher.

So without further a due, I give you the top 50 money earners in MLB history.
