Sports Radio Moment of the Day

Howard Eskin, the world's only remaining believer of the "Phillies are cheap" myth, was talking on Tuesday's show about Troy Tulowitski's new $150 million contract with the Rockies. "Do you think the Phillies would ever give anyone $150 million? Ha! Yea right!" Co-host Ike Reese chimed in, "they don't even guarantee people three years!'

Yea right. The Phillies, just a few months ago, gave Ryan Howard an extension for $125 million. But that contract doesn't kick in until 2012- and in 2011, he's due to make $20 million in the last year of his existing deal, so that's $145 million.

If you add in the money he made in the portion of 2010 after he was given the contract, that puts the total at over $150 million and between 2009 and 2016, Howard will have earned $179 million total from the Phillies.

But the Phillies would never, ever give someone $150 million! (Thanks to Cot's Baseball Contracts for the data.)

Christina Aguilera doesn’t so much act as glow… assisted mightily by the permanent gauze from Cher’s camera that the somehow infected every frame of the film. I am conscious of Ms Aquilera, but had no idea how many ways there were to photograph her hair and boobs until this film. Seriously. I expect there to be a website dedicated to the passion Steve Antin shows for his starlet’s bust and the many ways he features it in frame, from loosely hanging to practically strapped down. Is she an A-Cup or a C-Cup
