Eaton said he believes there is room to increase player salaries, but that significantly improving conditions in the minors could lead to "complacency."
"If you do (improve conditions), complacency sets in. I don’t know, I think it’s difficult, yes, and it’s easy for me to say that because of where I am, but I wouldn't be where I am without that," he continued. "Salary wise, I think that maybe they could pick up a little bit. I think there’s a little room, a little wiggle room there, but I don't think there should be complacency down there."
"I don’t disagree with that they’re being exploited. I don't. But I think it’s for the betterment of everybody. I know it sounds crazy ... It’s hard for me to explain."
"My quotes are simply from my personal experience. I wouldn’t trade my minor league experience for anything. As difficult as it was, it has made me the ball player/person I am today. I’m sorry if I offended anyone in anyway. Wasn’t my intentions."
