Clearing his mind

Gotta feel sorry for this guy, considering his annual salary.  Maybe he can put a bumper sticker on the back of his car.

My bad for thinking you'd be insulted for being moved down to 9th after batting well below the Mendoza Line as a full time DH almost 2 months into the season. This whole team needs to sack up and start hitting.

Ross,

Me and you are really Philadelphians who happened to be born and raised in different cities.

I don't actually think the salary is really an issue here at all; rather, it's exactly what you said. If you suck, you get benched. Julio Lugo said it himself. I thought that guy sucked, obviously, but he believed in accountability. The only reason I put the "13.1" bumper sticker in there is that his salary is a peculiar number, and it happens to be the same as many self-congratulatory bumper stickers you see out there.
