"Phil Hughes, the MVP of the team this season, came one out away from getting a $500K bonus he deserved for the amount of innings pitched this season, but failed when a rain delay cost him. I hope the team antes up and give Hughes what he deserves, but regardless, I have little doubt if the same scenario happened to Joe Mauer, they would have met him on the rainy field with cameras and a big check."

My understanding of the CBA is that the team is simply not allowed to pay the bonus if...

Even by poltical standards, the self-delusion is breathtaking.

"the most beloved stadiums across the country are the oldest and quite frankly the least comfortable."

Perhaps true in terms of Wrigly and Fenway, but frankly, I'm not sure I'd trade regularly going to Target Field for either.

Plus, many of the now-demolished stadiums simply were dumps. There was absolutely nothing special about Yankee Stadium other than the memories, for example.

Like the idea substantively, but pretty clearly a grab for media attention with a mayoral vote a few weeks away.

As a Minnesotan, I'm sorry to see Chris go. It's great to have public figures such as he willing to stick their necks out on the line when they are under no perssure to do so.

As a Vikings fan, I'm thankful for the good years he's given us, but understand the move. It's a tough business that unfortunately has little room for sentiment, as we've seen with the tough cuts of Longwell and Winfield in the last year.

Best of luck, Chris, with your next team. We'll be rooting for...

I was half hoping for a typo in this column so we could start a fresh round of knife-twisting. :)

Although obviously silly to be forced into the class in your case, it also sounds kinda fun, frankly.

I appreciate this debate, but personally am of the mind that folks who are smart enough to think through a sensitive issue such are generally smart enought to know satire when they see it. Kluwe's unedited letter ran on Deadspin, where the language he employed is de rigeour.

When he discussed it in other areanas (PiPress, MSNBC, etc.), he of course cleaned up the tone, but the message was the same.

I think the hand-wringing over the obscenities is unnecessary. He wrote for a...

The late '70s Yankees beg to differ, but I get your point.

As if we needed yet another reason to ignore his lazy analysis on...well, just about anything.
