A-Rod Gets An Offer

This is truly a thing of beauty:

Dear Mr. Boras,

We would be honored if your client, Alex Rodriguez, would enter the Hall of Fame wearing a Toledo Mud Hens cap.

Although Rodriguez has not played in a minor league game since 1996 with Tacoma, we would be delighted if he would represent the World Famous Toledo Mud Hens at Cooperstown.

However, in order for Mr. Rodriguez to enter the Hall of Fame as a Mud Hen, he would, of course, have to play for us. We would like to offer your client an incentive-based contract of $35 million dollars per season. If he is able to achieve the following:
-Hit 75 HR per season (10 straight seasons)
-Drive in at least 1,500 runs (10 years combined)
-Hit at least .350 each season (10 straight seasons)
-Help the Hens win 10 straight Governors’ Cup titles

Now keep in mind, Mike Hessman is our every day 3B and is the reigning International League MVP. We think that it would be a healthy competition at Spring Training between the two of them. Would your client be willing to play a different position?

We have included two Mud Hen hats for you and Mr. Rodriguez and look forward to seeing you wear them proudly.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Jason D. Griffin
Director, Public Relations/Broadcaster
Toledo Mud Hens Baseball, Inc.

Brilliant!

Kinda sucks for Mike Hessman, tho.
