Some of the former big names in baseball still linger in the sport today, even if it is just for some time in the minor leagues. Some people say that these players should hang up their spurs because they do not know when to walk away.
Some of the players who took the biggest contracts in baseball, or at least had an extremely expensive market price, are now contracted to play for mere fractions of the contracts that they were once signed to. This has allowed some players to get good playing time for teams that are in desperate need of a rebuild.
It reunited Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez, but some other players are making chump change playing for a minor league team, at least in comparison to what they once made.
