Max Scherzer takes generosity to the max with Double-A teammates | FOX Sports

But Wednesday night, after the Rumble Ponies’ 8-3 victory in Connecticut over the Hartford Yard Goats, Mad Max went above and beyond. According to those familiar, Scherzer, who has earned more than $250 million in his career, shelled out big cash for a locker room feast that included bone-in ribeye, filet mignon and lobster. Whereas a normal postgame dinner would be limited to just one folding table, Chateau Scherzer was a three-to-four folding table situation. The approximate dollar figure tossed around the clubhouse was upward of $7,000.

“They’re eating well tonight,” Scherzer said to the media after his start.

I like it when major leaguers who are on rehab but have already pocketed a TON do stuff like this. It is great for moral I'd figure - now those minor leaguers have seen exactly what making it means and that can be a driver when they are so close as guys in AA are. Also after years in the bushes where you get paid peanuts (outside of bonus babies) something like that must feel good.

Dupe, but a good story anyhow.

This story has been up for a few days and I only just noticed ... and apparently nobody else has or we've just become immune to this sort of thing but ...

Rumble Ponies??

Is that even legal?

I assume S.E. Hinton is a minority owner.
