WHATEVER, Mike Maddux.
Rejected. Not used to this…
This Maddux guy has SOME nerve… We’re offering you THE WORLD, Mike Maddux. THE WORLD.
There are people out there who WANT good baseball jobs, Mike Maddux. There are people sending their resumes out obsessively who would just like to get a job off a mountain, Maddux. Because it’s cold in western North Carolina and cantankerous and people watch too much college basketball here. There are bloggers that write and write and write and write about the Red Sox and would give up their first born puppies (um. maybe) if they could actually HAVE a baseball career. People that just want a CHANCE at being the next Heidi Watney, Mike Maddux. Of meeting Kevin Youkilis and being his new best friend (and maybe more). You could make that happen, Mike Maddux. What POSSIBLE reason could you have to metaphorically slap our face, hmmm?
“My wife and two daughters are together in the same state for the first time in three years and words cannot describe my happiness,” Maddux said. “The game of baseball has many sacrifices but being apart from family is the toughest. I feel there is too much distance between the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and Boston to see my family as much as I’d enjoy.
Oh. Um. That’s a good reason, I guess…
So Indians’ Sandy Alomar Jr. is the next contestant in the beauty pageant. I wonder what his talent will be?
Now that my top pick has fizzled away, we’ve got Sveum and Mackanin. Who’s your pick?
Oh. And the Royals stole Jonathan Sanchez. WHATEVER, Jonathan Sanchez. WHATEVER.
Hmmm. Too far, eh?
