Crazy, years ago, they argue over who was going to be the first "million" dollar baseman man.

Now look at the money they are making.

BTW, nice work there.

And in 1973 the Yankees sold for 8.7 million.

Nolan Ryan was the first million dollar salary in 1980. $1M then is worth a little over $3M today. They've slightly outpaced inflation.

Ryan quadrupled his salary with that deal.

I remember well, the uproar from the older generation, that it would ruin baseball. Clearly, they was wrong.
600K of 1960 dollars is worth 5.2 million today. I would have to think it outpaced inflation.

No, but adding strength when you already have the ability to hit will help for sure, and it's why guys went from good average hitters with limited power to good average hitters with massive power numbers during the steroid era. Also, it's clear that steroids allowed pitchers to throw harder.

“When you already have the ability to hit” is the key part of your statement, especially as it (doesn’t) relate to Davis.
