Posting his name wouldn't bother me so much, as long as his salary wasn't written next to it.

I do and so should everyone else after he hit that grand slam. Not to mention what he went through last year as a father. I expect him to pick up the slack when Lowell shits the bed the second half of this year.

what are the vegas odds for teams to win the world series? i'm thinking boston should be tops, just edging out detroit.....and my marlins will probably have the longest odds, just like my dolphins. :?

Hansen was suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat relax. When that happens, according to MayoClinic.com, the airway narrows, or closes, and breathing may be inadequate for 10 to 20 seconds, leading to a drop in blood oxygen.

"Your brain senses this inability to breathe and briefly rouses you from sleep so that you can reopen your airway," the website states. "This awakening is usually so brief that you don't remember it."

These interruptions, which often are accompanied by a snorting, gasping, or choking sound, can occur 20-30 times an hour for someone with obstructive sleep apnea, interrupting deep sleep without the person knowing it. In Hansen's case, he was told it was happening 56 times an hour, which basically means he was getting just a couple of minutes of rest per hour.

"I had no clue," he said. "I thought I was getting eight hours' sleep and wake up still tired. I was basically getting two hours' sleep total."

holy shit?!! :shock:

yea, i don't expect this to instantly make him a stud bullpen arm, but i think its crazy that he'd only get 2 hours of sleep some nights. my take is that this should only help his development.

the guy was blind and never brought the heat at any point in his career. very different prospect.

not to mention, he was never paid like hansen.
