Raffie Right not worth $5 million

11

The Rockies have decided not to overpay Rafael Betancourt. I don't think he's headed back to Cleveland, however, since Colorado seem to be interested in re-signing him. I kind of miss him (the one from a few years ago, anyway).

Another reason to hate CC

324

CC says that he's trying to recruit LeBron to NY. I know this is more of a basketball story, but I just can't help how much I despise CC right now. I went so far as to watch Legally Blonde with my wife last night instead of listening to him spew filth on Jay Leno's show. Yeah, Legally Blonde. And I'm not ashamed to admit that I'd watch it a thousand times again if it means not hearing CC say how much he loves NY and that this team overcame obstacles or some other nonsense.
