    Jeff Karstens:

    –If Karstens goes 1-11 he’ll be assured a spot in the rotation for 2012 worth $1.1 million
    –If Karstens goes 10-0 he’ll be cut halfway through the season and not get his ******** $25,000 bonus
    –If Karstens plays AAA ball in 2011: priceless

    Please prove me wrong Jeff and Buccos! Please show some sign that we want to win in this league.
