Got Some Money To Burn? Todd Coffey is Signing Autographs!

I just received an urgent email from the Milwaukee Brewers, announcing the autograph schedule for their "Brewers On Deck" event scheduled for January 24.

Along with the schedule, they announced the fee for various player/coach/announcer autographs. I'll sum them up here - you'll have to find the autograph schedule on your own, because I'm not repeating it here.

For $25 each, you can get the following autographs:

Ryan Braun
Trevor Hoffman
Bob Uecker

For $10 each, you can get the following autographs:

J.J. Hardy
Yovani Gallardo
Corey Hart (impressed that he's showing up, given that he hates the fans)
Tony Gwynn (I'm assuming this is Jr., though it wasn't stated)
Dave Bush
Jeff Suppan (he better not be getting to keep this money)
Carlos Villanueva
Rickie Weeks
Mike Cameron
Ken Macha
Todd Coffey and Manny Parra (unclear whether this is a package deal of if it's $10 for each? Either way it's a steal.)
Mike Rivera and Eduardo Morlan (ditto)

For free, you can get the following autographs:

Mat Gamel
Angel Salome
Taylor Green
Casey McGehee
Mark DeFelice
Brad Nelson
Vinny Rottino
R.J. Swindle
Tim Dillard
Mitch Stetter


1. Notice anybody missing? I'm absolutely shocked that Prince won't be in the house.

2. The fees for autographs are telling. Yo Gallardo, Manny Parra, Corey Hart, Rickie Weeks, you have not arrived yet, according to the marketing department.

3. Given the $10 fee, how long are the lines going to be for Todd Coffee, Mike Rivera and Ed Morlan?

4. Kudos for Cameron showing up, after the Brewers spent the winter trying to trade him to New York. Kudos also to Corey Hart, or perhaps this is part of a mandatory program that the Brewers are putting Hart through to try to make him at least pretend to like the fans.

5. Of all the free autographs, I'd go after Mat Gamel or Mitch Stetter. I want to say something to Stetter to see if he's as crazy as he appears.

6. I'd pay at least $10 for a Seth McClung autograph, again for the off chance that he would say something insane. Too bad he's not available.

I am suprised to see that they don't have Marcus Hanel on the list.

I should have added Hardy to the "has not arrived" list - a glaring omission on my part.

I think it's shitty to have some autographs cost more than others. I understand why the minor league guys are free, but the rest should be a flat fee.

Suppan should be paying people to take his fucking autograph.

thecobra said...

Suppan should have to sit at the counter to take money for all the other guys. JJ should at least more than the rest of those guys maybe 15 or 20.

And It's not really surprising that Fatty McTurd Pants is sitting this one out.

Just like the block party last year where he was "feeling ill".

If he loses his arbitration he's going to be the worst cancer this team has ever seen.

"yeah, you know"

I still want to find him signing autographs and try to slip a whopper wrapper into the mix.

Suppan should hand out $10 bills to the fans...

Actually, I thought Prince was going to be signing $100 chips at Potowatomi. The deal is, you may either keep your $100 chip you paid for or gamble it away at the roulette wheel...if you win, $3500 goes into his arbitration pot and if you lose, Cecil beats you up and steals your wallet.

Maybe Prince will be en route to his new team, and won't be able to make it.

That would be a hell of a birthday present for me!

Is this a "Pay Prince Fielder" fund raising event?

Pacman Jones thinks that Prince Fielder is a waste of human life/douche

Goldy said...

Something tells me the fan base is pretty much fed up with Prince. I'll go on record and say I still like the guy.
