TORONTO -- Former MLS player Herculez Gomez marked the release of the leagues salary
TORONTO -- Former MLS player Herculez Gomez marked the release of the leagues salary list with a tweet and a telling hashtag. Corey Graham Jersey . "So MLS salaries were published today. Never an easy day for anyone, very uncomfortable for all. Low or high paid. .ElephantInRoom." While salary transparency is part of doing business in North American sports, it is rare in the soccer world outside of MLS. But here, they are released by the Major Soccer League Players Union. The pay discrepancy between the stars and grunts is especially striking in MLS, where a few elite are paid outside the salary cap. The rest make do in a league that holds most of the cards when it comes to salary negotiations and free agency. At his current annual salary of $48,825 (all figures in U.S. dollars), it would take defender Mark Bloom four years ($195,300) to make what Toronto FC teammate Michael Bradley makes in one game ($191,176). Bloom, a well-spoken 26-year-old who has started all four of Torontos games this season, is not about to make waves on the subject. "It really doesnt mean much to me," he said after practice Friday "Im going to come here and do what I always do, just work hard as, work as hard as I can, improve myself day in and day out. "Those figures, you cant read too much into these. You get worried about the business side of it, then your heads going to be out of the game. So Im just focusing on whats going in on the field." Did you look at the salary figures, he was asked. "I did. Of course," he replied with a smile. "Theres a pretty wide gap. You can see that every player is pretty much underpaid," he added when pressed. "Hopefully that will get fixed and that will be addressed." Bloom joined Toronto last year after playing his way out of the minor leagues. Ironically he got his chance to start late last season when the club elected to bench English fullback Richard Eckersley, who was on the way out because of his high contract number. Bloom made $46,500 last season, about one-tenth of Eckersleys pay. Manager Ryan Nelsen acknowledges the difference in pay scale can cause problems within the locker-room when the numbers are revealed. "It does if youve got bad characters. Definitely," he said. "If youve got guys who are insecure about themselves or a wee bit jealous, yeah. A lot of teams have a lot of problems with that. "Fortunately, nobody can argue what Michael Bradleys done in his career or Jermain Defoes done in his career. And anybody who questions the difference, I just say Well go and do that. Then you can go and ask for that money." But Nelsen agrees salaries need to be raised at the bottom end. "I think they will address that," he said of MLS. Nelsen says he has been in both camps, making $24,000 as an MLS rookie in 2001 and then watching his pay grow as an English Premier League veteran. "Youve got to earn it," he said. "I always think that the market determines what you get paid. And those guys at the lower end, if they perform well, they get paid better. Its just a matter of time" Under MLS rules, a first-team roster is comprised of up to 30 players with players occupying roster spots 1-20 counting against the clubs 2014 salary cap of $3.1 million. Players occupying roster spots 1-24 must earn at least $48,500 this year while the minimum for roster spots 25-30 is $36,500. Bradley is one of three TFC designated players, meaning only $387,500 of his US$6.5-million salary counts against the cap. Bloom, whose wife is expecting their first child, did note that players who play well do get pay bumps. Just look at 21-year-old Toronto midfielder Jonathan Osorio who, after becoming a starter as a rookie last year, went to $142,600 this season from $46,500. Osorio says Bradley and fellow DPs Defoe ($6.18 million) and Gilberto ($1.2 million) have fit in smoothly. "Theyre great guys. Theyre not egotistical, noting like that," he said. "And (Brazil goalkeeper) Julio Cesar is a tremendous guy too." Wendell Smallwood Jersey . Rico dove horizontally to meet Andoni Iraolas precise long cross from the right to score his second league goal of the season in the 33rd minute. Two minutes later, Aritz Aduriz netted Bilbaos second when he raced forward and pounced on a poor clearance by Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio, sending a low shot rolling past goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo. Chuck Bednarik Jersey . On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line. http://www.theeaglesshoponline.com/Youth...es-Jersey/ . "Youre next." Hardly. Iguodala tormented his former team with a game better than any he ever played in eight seasons with the 76ers.PHOENIX -- The Colorado Rockies placed outfielder Carlos Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with left knee tendinitis and a sprained right ankle. Gonzalez left Fridays game at Arizona after going 0 for 3 with three strikeouts. It is his second trip to the DL this season after inflammation in his left index finger sidelined the slugger for five weeks. "You can see mental stress on him, you can see physical stress," Rockies trainer Keith Dugger said. "He made the decision to take time off, so thats where we are right now. Were going to get that ankle right. We know hes got tendinitis, weve been dealing with it. We know it isnt going away overnight or even in a week." Gonzalez is batting .238 with 11 homers and 38 RBIs in only 70 games this season. "We felt like it got to a point where it wasnt getting any better," manager Walt Weiss said. "Defeating the purpose to send him out there ... give him some time for those nagging injuries to calm down." Weiss added that hed like to see Gonzalez play again this season, hopefully. The Rockies recalled Ben Paulsen from Triple-A Coloraddo Springs to replace Gonzalez on the roster, and Paulsen was in the lineup at first base on Sunday. Rodney McLeod Jersey. Last-place Colorado, beset with injuries all season long, got more bad news before its series finale against the Diamondbacks. Left-hander Brett Anderson will see a spine surgeon on Monday in Scottsdale, Arizona, to address a bulging disk in his lower back. Anderson, who missed three months earlier this season with a broken left index finger, was placed on the DL on Wednesday. He is 1-3 with a 2.93 ERA in eight starts this season. "Hes having some issues, not so much back pain but pain going down his leg," Dugger said. "Its not a quick fix by any means, even if we go the non-surgery route." Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki remains on the disabled list with a left hip flexor strain but is feeling better, Dugger said. "He still has some on and off discomfort in the front of the hip there," he said. Dugger said Tulowitzki could have a torn labrum in his hip. Hes still not ready for a rehab assignment despite having been out since July 22, though he is working out.
