Nick Barnett will be able to feed his family...

...well maybe. He had to "go there" with this one little nugget:

I go with the rules they set. Now I get to play Monday night. Pockets are a little lighter, but I still get to play.

Pockets a little lighter Barnett? Lighter? Try to look at things from the big perspective pal:

Barnett will lose $155,882 of his $2.65 million salary this season.

That's right Barnett. $2.65 Million this one effing year. You donkey. Shut your mouth.

Oh I'm not done yet. How about over $15M so far for his career?

Cheer up Nick, you'll get through these tough times. I hear they sell 5 Jack's frozen pizzas for $10 up there in GB...so stock up now before the money dries up.

$150k is $150k

Well, assuming a dollar weighs .3 ounces, and he gets paid in all singles, all at once, and keeps all his earnings in his pockets, they will be 2,922.7875 pounds lighter.

I know it is quite a drive, but the Brewers have been scoring a lot of runs lately and George Webb will give you 6 burgers for 5 bucks when they score five.

I love Barnett, even though he was a Beaver... Fucking Beavers. If you don't want to get fined, don't mess around in Crappleton!!! "Oh, I know, I'll go to the oldest, whitest area in WI, the Fox River Valley! After we're done, lets go bowling in Oshkosh. No one will bother us there!"

To be fair, though, at least he got out of Oregon. I love the place for its natural beauty, but fuck me is it a racist state. Like deep-south, used-to-have-laws-that-if-you-were-black-and-lived-in-the-state-you'd-be-whipped-monthly-till-you-left-racist.

FWIW, I laughed outloud at the 5 Jacks for $10 thing. I love it when they run that deal....

This is truly sad. He probably had that money earmarked for solid gold spinner rims on his Escolade.

Tragic.
