Single Hispanic 3B Seeks Holdout To Share Apartment, Play Boggle

pillowfort.jpgOur boy John Fay at the Cincinnati Enquirer comes through with some more grade A insight. This time it's about Reds first round draft pick and all around masher, Yonder Alonso. With the deadline to sign draft picks fast approaching at midnight Friday, Alonso remains unsigned and sticking to some pretty hefty demands. He told Fay if he doesn't get a contract worth $7M, he has no qualms about sitting out next season and playing in the Independent League. Fay, for one doesn't think he's bluffing.

I thought this would get done. But what I hadn't counted on is the A-Rod factor. Alex Rodriguez, that Alex Rodriguez, is Alonso's workout partner and friend. ARod has told Alonso if things don't work to his liking, he's welcome to live with Rodiguez next season and play for Newark or Long Island of the Atlantic League. My guess is A-Rod doesn't live in a fifth floor walk-up.

Whee! Sleepover! They can have chips and dip and they can watch movies and they can build a pillow fort. It's gonna be like camp but with strippers.

The Newark Bears and Long Island Ducks are always known for having novelty old school baseball talent. Think Rickey or Canseco. Between that and living in A-Rod's bachelor pad, I don't really see why Alonso would pass that up for less than $7M. It'll be like when rich kids take that summer to go to Europe after college. Have fun for a year then go join the majors. DONT BE IN SUCH A HURRY TO GROW UP, YONDER.

Dunno...that sleepover thing didn't work out so well with Jeter.

They can give each other makeovers and tell ghost stories.

"Theirs was a New York love, a checkered taxi ride burning rubber, and like the city their passion was open 24/7, steam rising from their bodies like slick streets exhaling warm, moist, white breath through manhole covers stamped 'Forged by DeLaney Bros., Piscataway, N.J."'

And dance to 'old school' Madonna records.

Those kids would be kings in Haiti.

Sorry Lobster Baby, you've been replaced by the Pillow Fort Two as the funnest picture on Wow.

Which one of those kids is Rob?

Is there a Spanish version of Boggle?

Is Yonder welcome to play with Madonna too?
