Danny Graves Update

Former Met Pitcher Danny GravesWondering what Danny Graves is doing lately?

After being signed by the Mets to save the bullpen from Braden Looper in 2005 — and subsequently released — Graves faded away from big-league baseball, save for a 13-game stint with the Cleveland Indians during the early part of last year.

Ever wonder what the “Baby-Faced Assassin” did with that guaranteed one million dollars he pilfered from the Wilpons in 2005? Or the six million he stole from the Reds in that same year?

Well, what would you do with several million extra dollars, plenty of free time, and a strong interest in watching sporting events? Build a state-of-the-art home theatre system, of course!

Thanks to RedLegNation for the tip. (Strangely, Graves is that blog’s least favorite Red … huh.)
