Francis,

I think it's certainly possible for development in West Greenville near the river, but any drastic or major changes right now would probably be interpreted as gentrification. (I don't think they'd be able to plop down something like the Boundary in the middle of West Greenville without area residents complaining) I could see areas immediately around Dickinson redeveloping and that could spread into sections of West Greenville at some point.

The old 3rd street school site is interesting as well. There is a huge piece of land on the river that is potentially ripe for development.

It is interesting how the Minor league teams can move around. If Kinston does get a team, good on them. I think a CPL team would still work well for Greenville in a smaller stadium.

It really depends on how connected the parent club is to you.

If you're a prospect, you're on a draft contract -- which is a 7 year deal. It also means you're getting a signing bonus, which can be distributed over years. If you're drafted in the Top 10 rounds, that increases per pick in a range from $150k to $9 million. A player drafted in, say the 31st round, will get like a $40,000 signing bonus.

A minor league baseball salary itself, though, is a range between $1500-ish per month (in the A's to Double A) and $3000-ish per month (AAA). You're only getting that salary when official team activities are taking place. Professional free agents on minor league contracts typically don't have a signing bonus of any significant value.

So yeah, someone playing for like the Mudcats in Zebulon that wasn't drafted is probably making $15k per year.

Yeah, I should've elaborated. It also depends on your age.

If you're a senior in college coming out and you're drafted in the 31st round, you're probably getting a $1000 bonus because the club has leverage.

If you're a junior, you'd see something like $40k

If you're a senior in high school or you're at a JUCO and heading to college, you could see as much as $75k in the late rounds.

Baseball is complicated

Are new Uptown Greenville businesses cursed or evolving?

The wrong establishments for the wrong crowd. Those two places on Dickinson next to the science center are succeeding because they're separated from the college bar scene.

They're not going to shake the college bar scene. It's just not possible being so close to the university. Dickinson will be the upscale, young professional oriented neighborhood and 5th will remain what it is.

Kind of makes me wonder if they put the parking garage on the wrong end of downtown.
