Bah! Major League Baseball is quite a frightening proposition nowadays. At least the baseball players are. Take a look at A-Rod’s attitude. Sickening.
“Across town at Yankee Stadium, Texas shortstop Alex Rodriguez backtracked from his comments Friday that he would give back 30 to 40 percent of his pay if it would improve the sport.
“I’m willing to do my part. Thirty to 40 percent? Probably not. I was speaking off the cuff,” he said.”

Should I do the math for him? Let’s do it just for fun. $252 million dollars over 10 years. 30% of $252 million is $75,600,000. Divided by ten, that’s a pay cut of $7.56 million dollars a year. Oh darn. Only $17 some odd million dollars a year. Awwww, poor baby. That means only 10 new cars this year, and that 3rd house in the Alps will have to wait. Sheesh.
Will Gregory go an entire year without updating lethologica? He’s almost there. Just 67 more days.
