DateQuestionAnswer
2009-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)just curious - Mike Maroth just signed with the Jays and they say he may need surgery this spring - who pays for the operation?
(stewbies from rochester)
If he's signed, then the Jays, unless there's some agreement in place. Most players also have their own health insurance which contributes and Worker's Comp gets involved in some. (Will Carroll)
