Millions more? I am not sure what the requirements are for American born athletes and the amateur draft. But I do know that playing in the Mexican league would be a huge huge risk for any rising star. And its not like top players aren't paid when they are drafted.
My issue is the only other legit/safe league would be in Japan. Playing in a 3rd world country (Mexico) would be a huge security risk if you ask me. I don't think its worth it.
