Sorry, I couldn’t resist. It isn’t nice to laugh at someone’s misfortune.
A lot of these guys are working on building a pension and one game in a season at the Major League level makes that pension grow. I’m not 100% on percentages and/or time frames but I do know it is a considerable difference if you reach 6-10 years of service at the highest level.
So when a player is upset about not getting a call up during the season, you can understand that the season (in retirement terms) is a complete waste.
