    In yet the latest example of MLB's embarrassment of riches, the league announced Monday that players earned a record $69.8 million from the postseason, their share of gate receipts from playoff games. 

    The Kansas City Royals, the World Series winners, got the biggest piece of the pie: $25.1 million or $370K per playoff share. New York Mets players, who won the NL but lost the World Series, earned $16.7 million or $300K per playoff share.
