Right now, we're sending ARod ($24 million per year) and Kevin Brown ($11 million, because LA is still paying $4 million).

It would be nice if we could also unload Giambi ($12 million) and Vasquez ($9 million), but that might be too much to ask.

Plus, the flood victims wouldn't take Giambi and Vasquez. They're not that hard-up.

Plus, we can send Eddie Layton's salary.

Superfrankenstein,

Never again make a joke about Eddie Layton.

Never again.

Ever.

Frankly, I only wish he died six months earlier, so he didn't have to watch the most disgraced franchise in the history of sport.
