    Sad that they cant accommodate these guys with proper housing or even adequate meals and thats after MILB dissolved dozens of teams last year.

    Reminds me of what Ja Rule served up at Fyre Festival.

    This response is a real gem.

    Why is this a surprise? Minor leaguers have always been fed like this.

    Take your lumps, paid your dues, get to the show and eat like kings. Stop being sensitive little female dogs that you don't get to eat like major leaguers.
    Screw sabermetics.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Take your lumps, eat a piece of American cheese and tomato on the cheapest bread possible with the least nutritious lettuce available...

    I think the thing that amazes me about this crap is the teams have a vested interest in each one of those guy's futures. Yes, the vast majority of them will never make the big leagues and an even smaller percentage will have a true impact at the major league level.

    But to think you're getting peak performance and peak physical conditioning/training from guys you give trash food to is so dumb.

    Different sport, but Woj in the NBA did a pod about giannis's past. When he was discovered, his agent took him to a nutritionist to get him tested. The doctor legit thought he was an elderly alcoholic because of the way his internal organs were deficient of nutrition. And anyone who's watched the NBA can see how drastically his body has changed since he started eating and exercising at a true professional level.

    Not saying these minor leaguers are in that bad of shape, but clearly nutrition isn't a major concern, but you'd think it could be a major help in developing some of these guys.

    Yeah totally agree. Not that I'm some pillar of good nutrition, although I am working on it. But another crazy story is Richard Dent HOF DE for the Bears. He was drafted in the 8th round. Dude was like just over 200 lbs at 6'7. He had a hard time putting on weight. Apparently he had rotting teeth from all the candy and sugar he was consuming. The Bears got those fixed and put him on a proper nutrition plan and within a couple years he was up around 275 and on his way to Canton.

    Its crazy that they old be ok feeding these guys this garbage.
