On this day one hundred years ago, the Boston Red Sox sold George “Babe” Ruth to the New York Yankees, a.k.a. the Spawn of Satan. The misbegotten sale would condemn the Red Sox to 86 years of wandering in the wilderness of Major League Baseball. Ruth was sold for $100,000 which is equivalent to about $1,522,624.24 in today’s dollar. For comparison, the lowest paid player on the Red Sox today, Heath Hembree, makes $1.6 million. Or put another way, that amount is about 4.75% of what current player David Price makes today. This post is designed to make us all feel better about all the stupid decisions that are being made today in almost every walk of life.
