I wonder if that was part of the Mets' offer to Pedro...

If my wife let the entire world see her practically naked (probably NSFW) I might be a little bothered, in response. Though probably I wouldn't sleep with all my teammates.

"In related news, every single free agent on the market has told their agent to sign a deal with the New York Mets."

If I was the batboy, I'd be doing my best to find Mr. Benson a date on every road trip.

not only is she smokin', but she employed her talents of persuasion to single-handedly negotiate her hubby's multi-million$$$$ contract....what a babe

As long as we're on the subject of baseball wives, I heard a story about Lynne Austin, Darren Daulton's wife in the early '90s. She was a Hooter's model, and to the amusement of his Phillies teammates, a billboard of her was displayed at Jack Russell Stadium, the Phillies' spring training home in Clearwater. According to what I heard, but can't confirm, when they were in the midst of their divorce, the dollar figure of half his contract was added to her billboard for spite. Anyone remember this?

The Article refers to Benson as a "top Baseball player". Please get real. His wife is nice, but as a player his value has been inflated greatly........

Pshaw, she used to be a stripper. She probably has already slept with the entire Mets team. har dee har har

Now now, let's not stereotype ex-strippers too much. Benson has spent most of his career with the Pirates so she is probably only halfway through the Mets team. this story seems old, why didn't it get posted here when it was fresh? All the other sports blogs will laugh at us.

this story seems old, why didn't it get posted here when it was fresh? i believe the giambi story broke a day or 2 after she was on stern.

This was posted previously, gspm, though I'm not interested in taking the time to find it. Always amusing though.

It's a more fun story to blog about than steroids. You don't see any righteous indignation on this board about Anna Benson the way you would about Barry Bonds, the clear and the cream. Just goes to show you that truth is stranger than fiction. I mean, even the supermarket tabloids couldn't make this one up.

She's hot, but she's not Chuck Finley's ex-wife. By the way, I don't remember this from when it happened, but after she kicked Chuck's ass IN HIS CAR WITH A SHOE, she apparently said Finley was juicing. "Kris, have I introduced you to Denny Neagle? You should hang out with him!"

wfrazerjr, is that Geena Davis if she was slightly less attractive and starred in b-movies?

posted by dusted at 10:51 PM on December 15

Wait, I thought Geena David was slightly less attractive and starred in b-movies...

wfrazerjr, if only she kicked his ass. A high heel to the groin is how I recall it.

posted by yerfatma at 06:27 AM on December 16

True, JJ, true, but I don't think we'd ever see Geena gazing into the eyes of mullet boy on some crappy tv show:

posted by dusted at 09:05 AM on December 16

NO ONE is hotter than Geena Davis. I'm sorry, but ... eef. Well, maybe Teri Garr or Judith Light. According to the police report, yerfatma, Finley was slapped, had his ears pulled and was assaulted with "boots", which I assume means she kicked him. How the hell do you kick someone in a car?
