So, right before it was time for bed a thought came over me.....Vernon has been on the DL for quite some time now. I remembered Vernon was making $23 million dollars to play baseball this year but decided to head over to Cott`s just to be sure. Yep I was right.
With some simple arithmetic I was able to determine that works out to $141,975.31 a game.
I then multiplied that figure by the number of games Vernon (at the time) was out with his leg/groin injury. That would have been 21 games. That's how I got the total of $2,981,481.48
Not bad for 4 o'clock in the morning eh?
Right back to Cott's I went and noted that that figure is higher then most of our current Blue Jays' salaries, for the whole year.
I tweeted it out and my head hit the pillow all in one motion. When I got up I had about 15 e-mails, 90% of which was new followers which pushed me up over 6 bills.
