From what?
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

He signed a minor league contract with the Rockies last year and was assigned to their AAA team in Albuquerque. Why anyone who had made a couple hundred mil would want to play in Albuquerque is beyond me. It's 120 degrees in the shade. Great Mexican food, though.

I've read stories that he allowed people in his family to help manage his finances and they largely managed to help themselves to his finances. So he might need lunch money for those street tacos.

I read something about that. As I recall, that was litigated and settled out of court several years ago. It involved millions, not 10s of millions And at the time of the settlement, he still had a lot (50M?) of guaranteed money coming to him from the Phillies.

He should be fine. Unless he gets divorced. Then, all bets are off.

Chase Utley just took his last ever at-bat against the Mets. That was the perfect time to drill him. Oh well.

Teams trailing by 6 runs or more going into the eighth inning this season were a combined 0-487.
Now they're 1-487.

And what were the Phillies doing while the Red Sox were sweeping the Braves? Losing 2 of 3 to the friggin Marlins.
What's up with that?

Yeah, that would have been an opportune time to make some serious headway. However, they seem to be losing steam and are fading fast. :?
41-33.

When the Phillies put Chase "The Man" Utley in their Wall of Fame I hope they do it when they play the Mets.

That would be very fitting. 8-)

As I've said before, that's exactly how I roll. You sit in my chair and we're going straight to Fat Lip City.

Mrs psu_dad: That is not how you roll.
Me: That is totally how I roll.
