Votto, Mr. Redlegs doing SportsCenter ad Posted by dclark
01/21/11, 5:30 pm According to Tweets late this afternoon, National League MVP Joey Votto and Reds mascot Mr. Redlegs will appear in a new SportsCenter ad on ESPN.
Quick tidbit for #Reds fans: 2010 NL MVP Joey Votto & Mr. Redlegs are in CT today to film a new @ESPN @SportsCenter commercial
From the Redsâ€™ Jamie Ramsey:
Lots of our Reds family members filming commercials latelyâ€¦stay tuned to ESPN for a Most Valuable spot for that sports network.
If/when we find out when itâ€™s airing, weâ€™ll let you know â€¦
I would not under value the B-Jays to that level. I think the Rays fall down to the bottom and I see both Baltimore and Toronto as being in the race to very near the end. It could be a three or four team race.My son just lost has last 2 favourite Blue Jays. His all time favourite was Alex Rios. He was released 2 years ago. His next favourite was Lyle Overbay (so much so he likes playing 1st base in baseball). He left as a fee agent. His 3rd was Vernon Wells. They dumped him on Friday.
Of course they got rid of my favourite (Haliday) last winter.
I believe the Jays see 5th place as attainable and are going for it with a full head of steam ... Baltimore be damned.
Thank you Albert. :hw:Perhaps the best players should be paid the most, but as in life, it doesn't always play out that way. I find it hard to believe that anyone should get a ten year contract. In asking for the most money, Albert is suggesting that St. Louis hamstring their organization for years to come. The only teams that can absorb that kind of contract would be the teams out east in the American League.
Let Albert play in New York or Boston...who gives a crap? The Cardinals were going to give him 7 years and 200 million. That's not good enough? Screw it, go pound salt or play for New York.
Albert better hope he doesn't obtain a bad back midway through the year, or more likely, he better hope his team stays in the hunt and has enough hitting to protect him in the lineup. If Holiday goes down, why pitch to Albert? If Albert doesn't get pitched to, his numbers won't be as sweet...that could mean the difference of some serious money.
I think he would have been better off taking the seven year deal in St. Louis.
