Even Wild Card games pay

Major League Baseball announced the amounts of the postseason shares that were distributed from the 2013 playoffs.

For being in the National League Wild Card Game, this is where the Reds landed:

(Share of Players’ Pool: $940,259.50; value of each of full share: $15,284.85) – The Reds awarded 48 full shares, a total of 12.24 partial shares and 12 cash awards.

By contrast, here is how much more it pays to get to the World Series….

WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS
BOSTON RED SOX (Share of Players’ Pool: $22,566,228.05; value of each of full share: $307,322.68) – The Red Sox awarded 58 full shares, a total of 14.895 partial shares and 21 cash awards.

NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS
ST. LOUIS CARDINALS (Share of Players’ Pool: $15,044,152.03; value of each of full share: $228,300.17) – The Cardinals awarded 56 full shares, a total of 9.798 partial shares and two cash awards.

Equally, if not more importantly, imagine what the money means to the team/ownership itself.This is why, imo, Baker and others are gone this year; they must compete beyond what the Reds’ dismal postseason record has been over the last several years; especially with the talent they have amassed and is currently in the barn.

Any slices of the pie for the beat writers—ah shucks —didn’t think so .
Will we see who was given the full shares–part-or cash awards. Just wondering.
