Now that he has his contract we need to get this guy in contact with google. Dude's got the wackiest collection of photos I've ever seen. I think I talked about this when I posted this guy's photo on a previous Corey Hart blog:
Which is at least understandable. But Dusty Rhodes? Like is Dusty Rhodes paying google to throw in a picture of him no matter what you search on google? Or maybe Dusty is running google? But it's not just that; there's this:
Anyhow I spent more time getting to the bottom of this image debacle than actually thinking about this blog. I guess I'm happy? Guy is raking this year, there's no doubt about that. He's a two time all star, and he clearly wants to stay here. In fact I can't remember a guy more adamant about wanting to STAY in Milwaukee. Like I'm pretty sure Gary Sheffield would have had Milwaukee eliminated from the Union if he could. But during all the trade rumors he consistently said that he wanted the option to stay here long term and from Corey's lips to Doug Melvin's ears he is signed through 2013. At this point it might be Melvin's goal to sign anyone or anything every week until the season is over to take attention away from the fact that this team is in a tailspin. Next week Rickie Weeks. Then the Italian racing sausage. So on and so forth.
Also if I'm reading between the lines here Doug Melvin is basically saying with this move that the Prince Fielder era is DUNZO this winter. Even if they wanted to resign Prince at this point they've now committed about 8 million a year to Corey, in addition to Braunie's contract, the extension Yo signed earlier this year, and Randy Suppan, I mean Wolf's, two more years. If they thought they had a legit shot at Prince this deal would never have happened. Like it or not the cornerstones of this franchise for the next 3-5 years are Braun, Hart, and Gallardo.
PS: That Rickie Weeks extension seriously does need to happen. Everyone always wondered what kind of numbers he could put up if he were healthy. Well how about 65 home runs and 240 RBI's in your grillmix? Seriously though that should happen by the end of the year. The Italian's agent is too much of a wiener anyway. HEYO!
Double PS: This entire blog was a vehicle for that last line.
