I don't know but here is the inside story on Bernie's condition:
3 days ago he wrote:
"sorry for not responding sooner but i do have to work to pay the bills and afford to take my 3 sons to a handfull of games each year lol .......
I don't claim to be expert as you all pointed out , just sick of choosing to take my sons to 5 or 6 games a year rather then take vacation < can't afford both > "
Just a few days ago he was a vibrant young man. He had a job, he took his kids to see games, and went on vacations.
Three days later, he's homebound. Those kids are now so old they now have kids of their own that are older than baseball gal.
Ya gotta admit. Having a 72 hour stretch like that can make you kind of cranky.
The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.
