ER MLB Players strike Out

Seems like these wealthy MLB players have made a bad investment decision. Should have kept it simple @ Vanguard.

Former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada and ex-pitcher Jose Contreras claim two financial advisors led them into a series of bad investments, including a real estate deal and a hedge fund that cost Posada millions.

Every athlete should watch the ESPN documentary "Broke." It's on Netflix. Every athlete should also pay attention to Tracy McGrady.

In order to find it on Netflix you have to search for "30 for 30: Broke" If you just search for Broke you won't be able to find it.

Partially I think their ego's get in the way, they are used to folks buttering up to them, and easily fall into the roll of big shot.
Sad really, as I'd would have loved to work a few years and then retire with millions invested and do my own thing.
