Yesterday we learned that part of the sales pitch to get Jonathan Broxton to come to Kansas City was a hunting trip involving Broxton, Jeff Francoeur and Ned Yost. Today, because I’m obsessed with this kind of thing and I’m too old to be cured of such maladies by now, I read the in-depth report about this trip over at the New York Post.
If you’re not ill like me, just know that the hunting trip took place on a 40,000 acre ranch owned by comedian Jeff Foxworthy. Of course it did. Next time someone tells you to stop trafficking in lazy stereotypes ignore it, because that stuff pays, jack.
My biggest takeway: how many teams were going to pay Broxton $4 million with incentives to $5 million? Maybe some. I can’t imagine a ton. But I guess if we want to credit the hunting trip for it all it will be more fun that way.
