Game 23 Open Thread - Jays (10-13) at Royals (9-13)

Days Until RR Fest: 1

It's a site tradition that whenever the Royals face off against A.J. Burnett that I mention an odd perk in his 5 year/$55 million dollar contract (insert Meche comparisons here) with the Blue Jays:

  • $6M signing bonus
  • 06:$1M, 07:$12M, 08:$12M, 09:$12M, 10:$12M
  • Burnett may opt out of the contract after 2008
  • limited no-trade clause allowing Burnett to block deals to 15 clubs
  • deal includes 8 round-trip limousine trips per season between Toronto & Burnett's Maryland home for his wife

Eight hours in a limo. Fun! I wish I was married to a rich guy!

I'm crushed that Greinke is pitching tonight and not tomorrow, as I was hoping to see him live at the K.

Just a reminder, tomorrow is Royals Review Fest. Look for a blue Silverado in the East lot before tomorrow's game and a "Gload Will Explode" sign in the stands during it. I'll have some food and drinks on hand, and also some free video games if anyone wants them (MLB 08 The Show for PS3). Check this thread for more info, or shoot me an email.
