I rescind my critique about spinning.

Now I must go watch the Nickelodeon game show channel for the rest of the night. Cheers

Also, most will go off the USA Today payroll, which is around $63 M, as it doesn’t go as detailed with payments from other teams (such as the $11.5 M for Burnett).

Also I must point out that Bob Nutting is the 10th richest owner in MLB according to MSNCB
