Son of a...

Damnit. While you guys were drooling over buffalo wings (and oh yeah, hot models!) last night, the Boston Red Sox were busy wrapping up a 5-year, $70 million deal with J.D. BOO. Most of you guys know that I have always had an inexplicable crush on the Drewster, but I feel like he has now broken my heart. Let's face it, the only way he could have hurt me more was to go to the Cubbies or the Yanks. And to answer the obvious question, no, I won't become a Red Sox fan. J.D. is set to make $14 million a year for the first 4 years, but less the 5th year if he doesn't play a certain amount of games. Here's what ESPN's Jerry Crasnick thought of the J.D./City of Boston pairing...

"On paper, this might be the worst union of star and town since Paris Hilton dropped into Altus, Ark., for a reality show paycheck. Drew's roots go back to Hahira, Ga., a one-yellow-caution-light town known primarily for its Honey Bee festival. Very soon, he'll enter a world of short-tempered waitresses, middle fingers at traffic intersections and dissection by radio talk-show caller."

Word.
