    Mike Hampton Starting For Braves

    Holy smokes! Mike Hampton is starting today for the Braves.

    Hasn't pitched in the bigs since 2005. Before I got married.

    He's earned something like 30 million dollars since his last pitch.

    It looks like he could get a win if he can get through 5 innings without blowing the 6 run lead his team just gave him.

    WOW. 9 Runs, 6 Earned off Cole Hamels in 3 and 2 thirds before they took him out.

    The over/under for Hampton getting hurt is apparently 4 hours.
    I'm interested in jobs and you won't create jobs by forcing employers to pay their employees $9/hr- Sea Ray
    I'd say min wage should be about $9/hr - Sea Ray

    Aren't the Rockies still paying him to NOT pitch for the Braves? That has to be the all time worst contract ever.

    No, it's all on the Braves now.

    In 2009, he'll be an Astro, pending a physical.

    Hampton should pitch for the Rockies and Braves, and pay them to do it. What a joke.

    Too bad. This is a free agent I hoped Walt would talk to seriously. I made that argument here some weeks ago but was told he was a certainty to re-sign with Atlanta.

    Here in Houston, there saying it's pretty much a done deal that Hampton's signed with the Astros...just pending a physical. And it looks like they've given up any ideas of re-signing Wolf.

    ~edit~ hehe...didn't see 'unassisted''s first post of yesterday. Nevermind.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
