Yes, a post that involves baseball, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Feb 7, 2012, 2:53 PM EDT

Kim and Kris

You thought we couldn’t get any more fluffy, empty non-baseball baseball posts in today? Ha!  I have not yet neared the bottom of the barrel.  Not on your life, buster.  Get a load of this:

The Minnesota Twins are cutting ties with the Kardashians, too. Well, sort of.

The team announced Tuesday it will auction off a baseball autographed by reality starlet Kim Kardashian and her ex-husband Kris Humphries. They signed the ball before a Twins game last July, when the Minnesota native and NBA player Humphries threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

I can only presume that if Kim and Kris had stayed together that, rather than auction the ball, they would have kept it in the Twins Hall of Fame and Museum, right next to the ball from Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, Harmon Killebrew’s Bat and Kent Hrbek’s brass knuckles. But now that their fairy tale is over it is no longer worthy of honor.

By the way: money from the auction will benefit Twins charities.  Word on the street is that Gleeman understands that that purpose, and not picking up a decent cheap relief pitcher, is probably a better use of the proceeds.

But he still burns for guys like Todd Coffey. Don’t let him tell you any different.

    Holy crap, that is one huge hand that Humphries has.

      ‘Huge” applies to several other attributes on those two as well.

        Ego? Bank account (for some godforsaken reason)?

    Kent Hrbek’s brass knuckles! Hahahahaha! Craig you’re just full of humor and wit today. Well done sir!!

    I wonder if Jeter will be bidding on it for his “Gift Baskets”?

      You watch: it’ll have already been signed by Jeter when Kim signed it and passed it to Kris.

      • 12strikes - Feb 7, 2012 at 3:15 PM

        Almost everyone in professional sports “signed it” before being passed to Kris.

    Winning bidder can only keep the ball for 72 days.

    You really have hit the bottom of the barrel with this story Craig. How about a Jamey Wright signing story instead?

    • 12strikes - Feb 7, 2012 at 3:20 PM

      Craig’s therapy must be working, usually he would have found a way to blame the breakup of the marriage on the Phillies.

    • proudlycanadian - Feb 7, 2012 at 4:10 PM

      Aaron eventually got around to the Jamey Wright signing story.

    What a worthless baseball. The ball was worth more before those 2 scumbags signed it. They shouldn’t auction it off they should throw it in one of their 10,000 lakes.

      Think of the fishes, man! What did the poor lil fishies do to deserve THAT??!! You, monster!!!!!

    I like that Harmon Killebrew swung a capital-B Bat. Sounds about right to me.

    What if Kim Kardashian selects Joe Mauer as her Baseball Boyfriend? Would they cancel the auction? What if she breaks up with him because he’s not playing well?

    Annie Savoy she’s not.
