'El dinero no es la vida, es tan solo vanidad'

Publicado: 13/09/2012 10:14

yankees

"En cuanto a la edad, ninguna mujer dice la verdad, a menos que sea acerca de la de otra mujer"... La Pimpi.

LA PREGUNTA DE LA SEMANA: El shortstop de los Rojos en las menores, Billy Hamilton, impuso este año un nuevo record de bases robadas en una temporada, con 154. La marca anterior era de Vince Coleman, 145 en 1983. ¿Quiénes son los tres siguientes en robos en una temporada en las menores?

LA RESPUESTA: Donnell Nixon, 144 en 1983; James Johnson, 124 en 1913, y Jeff Stone, 123 en 1981.

¿CUÁL CRISIS?- Los Yankees, el equipo mejor pagado en los últimos 13 años, desde 1999, comenzó este 2012 con un roster que costaba 197 millones 962 mil 289 dólares. Pero va a terminar con sueldos por 232 millones 200 mil dólares...

MÁS AÚN.- Ahora, ese ascenso es nada ante el de lo Dodgers. Cuando se inauguró la temporada en abril, pagaban a sus peloteros 95 millones 143 mil dólares. Esa suma ha subido hasta 201 millones 900 mil dólares. Y para 2013 tienen firmados a nueve por 10 o más millones...

NO MÁS.- Solamente esos dos equipos pagan 200 millones ó más a sus bigleaguers...

SÓLO VANIDAD.- Pero si se recuerda a quien fuera mi amigo, Luis Alcaráz, "el dinero no es la vida, es tan solo vanidad". Los Tigres resolvieron gastar más dinero que nunca antes, y pagan ahora a su gente 132 millones 300 mil dólares, incluidos 23 millones a Prince Fielder y 21 millones a Miguel Cabrera, pero están fuera de la pos-temporada con record de 74-67, mientras los Atléticos, que invierten apenas 55 millones 372 mil 500, honorarios número 28 entre los 30 equipos, están en los playoffs con 81-60; y los Rays, con 74 millones, tienen buen chance porque amanecieron ayer sobre 77-64. Hay seis equipos con rosters de 140 millones o más, pero uno solo está en primer lugar con más de un juego (tres) de ventaja, los Rangers, 84-57...

"Conozco bien los aparatos que detectan las mentiras... Estoy casado con uno de esos"... Pacomio.

APARTE DEL BEISBOL.- Los partos de madres solteras en Estados Unidos en 1990, fueron 28 de cada 100. En 2010, 40.8 de cada 100...

ESPERANZA.- En México esperan que Luis Heredia (Piratas), nativo de Mazatlán y Manny Bañuelos (Yankees), de Durango, sean en el cercano futuro, estelares del montículo. Los reportes de los scouts sobre ellos son muy buenos...

¡EMBUSTEROSO!.- Entonces Roger Clemens es un mentiroso redomado, o un mitómano grave, porque ahora ha dicho que quizá siempre sí lance con los Astros, después de haber afirmado que no regresaría a las Mayores. Pero, ¿cuál interés habría en ver a un esteroidado de 50 años de edad, uniformado con los colores de un equipo a 40 juegos y medio del primer lugar de su división y con record de 45-97, el peor de los 30?...

"Los ejércitos que comandó Simón Bolívar, jamás conquistaron, solo liberaron"... Anónimo.

  • An image of Chicago Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood adorns the side of a building across the street from Wrigley Field, Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012 in Chicago. Even for a team with a record of futility unmatched in professional baseball and, heck, all of professional sports, this season has been one of the most dismal in Cubs history. About the only good thing that could be said about a team poised to lose 100 games for the first time in 46 years--one of which came after the shortstop trotted off the field thinking there were three outs instead of two--is that it is doing so in front of fewer fans than any year in the last decade.
