Funny how the guy played through incredible pain last year but leaves today's game with back stiffness.

I wonder why. :-b

Because prior to his contract year he made a total of $14M over 7 years. Now he's making $64M over 5 years. Just a TINY little bit of a raise. I know that if my boss gave me that much money and said I could take as many sick days as I needed I'd be on the couch the second I felt something in my back. The Mariners had a 5 run lead at the time so it's not like it was THAT important, but unless it was serious you'd expect him to play through it usually. Then again... it's the Royals.

Wow I couldn't disagree more.

Huh? I didn't really make a statement, I was just saying that if I made that much I'd take a day off if my back hurt. I don't know how you couldn't disagree more with that, it's not like I'm blaming Beltre for becoming Juan Gone. You act like it's such a shocking statement I made :-b

I was wondering about that too. What do you disagree with - that LBJ would slack if he made more money, that there was a 5 run lead at the time, or that it was against the Royals? :-?
