What the heck was he doing walking around with $1400 in his wallet. 8-o

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

$1400 doesnt seem much for an MLB player on a roadtrip... I could see anything like $3000 as alot.

I was just reading that on the papers this morning. The guy definitey has some integrity. Graves said that he would send him a lot more things than just the autograph for his father. It gave me goosebumps when I read it because I wasn't so sure if I would've done that. :-b

For a person who makes millions I think he didn't care much. However, I'd take it cause I'm unemployed.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Since Graves is on two of my teams, and is pitching great right now, I'd return the money to him. ;-D

If I found the wallet, I'd probably do the same thing. Because with somebody that rich, you KNOW he's going to give you money in exchange for it, and you know you'll have an "in" to Reds events and things like that. So I would'nt do it because I'm a good person, I'd do it for what it would get me ;-D It's human nature, so I don't feel bad.

But then again, with that Reds card that enables him to get into every stadium in the majors........I might take advantage of that first. Man, that'd be awesome...."Excuse me Mr. Graves, you're supposed to be in Houston today. What are you doing in Toronto?" :-D
