It wasn't me. I swear.

  • If you want to feel a wee bit less good about yourself and your self worth, you should try the Joe Mauer Salary Crunch at espn.com. It'll tell you exactly how long Joe Mauer has to work to make your annual salary. Funny and depressing at the same time!
  • Predictably, I am subscribed to Google News and Blog alerts with the keyword phrase "Boof Bonser," because it's harder to keep tabs on him now that he is far far away. Imagine my alarm when I read this headline in my inbox:


(I feel the need to point out that it was NOT me. I have an alibi.)

  • I further feel the need to point out that as I am currently packing for Florida, I am NOT OK with a Boof Bonser injury. I believe I gave very clear and explicit instructions to the Red Sox organization and fans that Boof was not to be harmed in this transaction. Color me displeased.

OMG why would I let myself do the joe mauer salary crunch? Seriously?! I mean, freaking seriously he has like NOTHING to get what I live off of. I guess it's one thing to know it and another to see it lol.

Then again, I don't have an entire state of 15 year old girls hearting my name in their notebook.

HAHAHA! Yes, we all have our burdens, I guess! Good point.

It will take Joe Mauer .17 games to make what I make in a year. Then you have to ask yourself, "Could Joe Mauer handle doing what I do for a living?" Sure, he's good at baseball, but I'm pretty sure that after about 3 hours at a junior high church lock in he'd be hiding in a corner crying for his mom.

My salary is so small it could'nt compute!! I think Joe makes my salary just warming up in the on-deck circle......

Yup, I'm with you Krissy...I think Joe makes my salary for tying his shoe laces and spitting.

So he'd have to play .22 of a game which translates to almost 2 innings. My question is... are those Neshek innings or Keppel innings? Because if it's Keppel innings at least I know he's working back there.

Logging in helps, kids. The artist formerly known as anonymous hearts you too.

Hey my sister and I went over to the City of Palms Park and they give tours (I am sure you already know this) and they take you through the players areas. Hideki Okajima walked with in a foot of us. Other then the Soxs fans it was cool....perhaps you can stalk Boof from there.

Joe makes my salary after getting into his stance and lifting the bat off his shoulder...

• Rangers left-hander C.J. Wilson, a lockdown reliever the past few years, is on his way to winning a job in the starting rotation. He can throw four pitches, and if he throws them for strikes, he could help fortify the Rangers' rotation. Starter or reliever, he remains the club's movie critic. Asked about the film "District 9", he said he loved it, and spoke eloquently about it, using the words "metaphor'' and "apartheid'' and "genre'' in complete sentences.

I think Baby Jesus makes my monthly salary just adjusting his cup...weekly just by blinking his big, baby eyes. :)
Evelyne-isn't it weird how astounding CJ seems just by using words you learn in junior high? Teammate Darren O'Day took both the LSAT and MCAT...and could get into either med school or law school with his scores. *Good* schools...not ones on small island nations. :)
