It's no secret that MLB is making a push to unionize the minor leagues. Knowing the conditions that have been publicized over the last couple of years, I believe that's due.

Still, you might be saying farewell to those $5 cups of beer.

Of course they deserve so much more, but let's not have the minor leaguers demand too much just because they are playing professionally. Let's keep in mind that there are only American and National in the major leagues. You shouldn't live at poverty wages but you should earn your way to those big contracts.
