Actually, I'm a little bummed about Adrian Gonzalez getting his deal because I just acquired him for my Sports MBA Fantasy team, Crushin' Cup Check. I was hoping to be able to continually light a fire under him this season with posts like, "A-Go hits 2 homers... Almost done spending $500 raise" or "A-Go beats out Pujols in NL All-Star race... Last of $500 raise spent celebrating at Olive Garden". With that little fire burning, I'm sure he would've absolutely torn through the season. As it is now, my fantasy team and I have to be on constant Wiki-Watch, which is how I refer to players who receive contracts and then completely reverse their attitudes. Remember when Wiki Gonzalez was the fiery catcher to replace Ben Davis? Remember how fat he got when he got his raise? One good thing about only getting a $500 raise... You can only buy so many carne asada burritos with that.
