Guerrero Taken

I really like Michael. He would, obviously, be a pretty important part of our offense in 2009. I don't know how much money a 21st-rounder makes, but Michael looks like the type of prospect that could substantially improve his draft status if he plays another year of injury-free ball. Here's another thing to think about, Mike. The Washington A farm teams are in Woodbride, Virginia; Hagerstown, Maryland; and Winooski, Vermont. Now, Maryland and Virginia are okay, but, Mike, you've got a one in three chance of ending up in VERMONT. You ever been there? More importantly, have you ever met a chick from Vermont?

Don't believe me? Check out Miss Vermont 2007. Not that there's anything wrong with Miss Vermont 2007, but, let's remember - the best Vermont can do looks less like a Top Tier Sorority girl and more like an All-American on the Women's Rifle Team.

Now, Mike, let's talk man to man for a second. In a totally hetero way, you need to know that you're a nice looking guy who is a varsity athlete at a school known nation-wide for its attractive women. Do you want to stick around and pick up a few more impressionable freshmen at the Library on your way to an All-SEC season and a chance at a much higher pick in the draft, or do you want to chance going to Vermont, playing for $8.00 a day (plus a can of maple syrup), only to head over to the local independent hippie brew-pub where you'll have to settle for the eye-candy equivalent of licorice jelly beans?
