Read the following paragraph from “A Tremendous Trade”:

It might not seem fair, but in every profession, workers earn whatever people are willing to pay them. Baseball is no exception. Teams compete to offer as much money as they can to players who are among the league’s best, like Rodriguez. Because baseball is such a popular sport, watched by ticket-buying fans at stadiums and on television by millions, a team can earn many millions of dollars each season. Teams use much of their earnings to pay their stars’ salaries because the best players attract the most fans to games. For example, soon after the Yankees announced that A-Rod would be coming to town, the team sold $2 million worth of tickets.

The main idea of this paragraph: Workers in all professions, including baseball, earn what people are willing pay them. Which of the following does the writer use to support this main idea?
A. the Yankees are one of the best teams in baseball.
B. Teams pay a lot for good baseball players so that fans will attend games.
C. the Yankees sold $2 million worth of tickets when the Yankees announced A-Rod as a player.
D. A-Rod is one of the best players in the league.
