Reinsdorf the Benevolent

By Kevin

Of course this is not benevolence:

"I voted 25 times for [Podsednik]," said Jerry Reinsdorf, chairman of the White Sox. "Well, you know, this is Chicago, where the slogan is, 'Vote early and vote often.' And it would cost me money. He's got a clause in the contract that if he makes the All-Star team he gets a $100,000 bonus. But it's worth it."
How much was it worth to the White Sox for Podsednik to make the All-Star team?
