Dan Daly: Nats ink the real bonus babies
Question of the Day
The Redskins handing $41 million in guarantees to now-indicted Albert Haynesworth isn’t quite as funny as the Nationals handing a $1.4 million bonus to a Dominican “prospect” with a fake identity, but it’ll do for now.
Speaking of the Redskins, somebody told me they’re trying to unload the last of the Jason Taylor replica jerseys on their Web site.
To which I replied: “What’s the price, a second-round pick this year and a sixth next?”
Actually, the jerseys have been marked down from $71.99 to $19.99, making them almost as big a steal as Taylor walking away with $8 million last season for 3.5 sacks.
To the team’s credit, there’s a story about Haynesworth’s automotive adventures on Redskins.com. When I checked Friday night, I found it strategically placed between “Jay Cutler Puts House on Market” and “After Birth of Twins, Travis Henry Now Has 11 Kids by 10 Women.”
Now we know the real problem with the Broncos quarterback: brains (or the lack thereof). I mean, who would try to sell his home in this economy if he didn’t have to?
You can almost predict how the whole soap opera will play out in Denver. Cutler will sulk his way through the season, Mike Shanahan will be back coaching next year and the two will be reunited - kinda like Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood, only without the accidental drowning.
FYI: The Cutler manse is 7,500 square feet - almost as big as the red zone (9,600).
