True, right now I'm just looking forward to trading season. Who knows how that will shake out.

Good for the young guys.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/mlb-big-league-stew/mlb-announces-playoff-shares-red-sox-players-307k-211103670--mlb.html

Boston Red Sox players are getting an extra $307K for winning the World Series, while the runner-up St. Louis Cardinals are each getting a bonus of $228K for their playoff run.

Major League Baseball announced Thursday how it will distribute the $62,683,966 in extra player money from the postseason. Each team that makes the postseason gets a cut — playoff shares, they're called — depending on how well they fared. The Red Sox get the most, the Cardinals get the next highest amount and so on.

This year's per-player playoff share for the Red Sox is a nice chunk of change, but it doesn't match last season's record of $377,000 that the San Francisco Giants received.

Here's the team-by-team rundown of the 2013 paydays:
• Boston Red Sox: $307,322.68
• St. Louis Cardinals: $228,300.17
• Detroit Tigers: $129,278.22
• Los Angeles Dodgers: $108,037.06
• Oakland Athletics: $37,316.25
• Pittsburgh Pirates: $35,558.58
• Tampa Bay Rays: $35,280.10
• Atlanta Braves: $34,012.30
• Cincinnati Reds: $15,284.85
• Cleveland Indians: $15,107.00

The teams that lose each series get the same amount of cash, but players vote how they'll distribute the money and that's why the individual payouts differ. For example: Both the Tigers and Dodgers received $7,522,076, but Dodgers players voted to award 58 full shares while the Tigers gave out only 48. Some players get partial shares or cash awards too.

MLB explains where the money comes from:

The players’ pool was formed from 50 percent of the gate receipts from the Wild Card Games presented by Budweiser; 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first three games of the Division Series; 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first four games of the League Championship Series; and 60 percent of the gate receipts from the first four games of the World Series.

Who's the happiest about this? Perhaps the young St. Louis Cardinals. The Cards had a handful of rookies who were making the major-league minimum of $490,000 this season, so getting an extra $228K is quite a bonus. David Ortiz, for example, made $14.5 million in 2013, so an additional $307K is nice, but it's not a huge bump.

Michael Wacha, Trevor Rosenthal, Carlos Martinez, Matt Adams, Pete Kozma, Seth Maness, Shelby Miller and Kevin Siegrist are among the Cardinals who made $490K this season and now will enjoy a 47% bonus.

If anyone of those dudes owes you money, today is a good day to send 'em a text message.

They can buy me some Just-for-Men, for all the grey hairs I earned in the playoffs!
