    Plus who knows how much money he's spending on medical staff in order to find out what's "wrong" with his body that the White Sox training staff supposedly fucked up. This guy goes through doctors as fast as Trump goes through politicians.

    This guy's wife has to slap some sense into him and make him psychologically accept his situation before he burns through all his cash.

    Nope, got that figure from a quick check of BR.

    I used to live next door to Ray Searage and at the time he was pitching for the Vancouver Canadians and hoping to get enough innings in in the Majors to get the MLB pension (now he is pitching coach guru that turned Happ and others around). Not sure if Lawrie played enough but it is a pretty good pension that is probably higher than the salaries of most posters on this board - so there is that to consider. What Lawrie needed was some kind of ADHD control therapist.

    It used to be 43 days to earn an MLB pension. After 10 years of MLB service time the pension increases substantially.

    There seems to be a real lack of information online surrounding the injury that Lawrie is suffering from.

    Is everyone sure that he's not simply trying to rationalize why he's been outta the league? Maybe he's in denial and just making some excuses to try and justify why he's unemployed.
