Scott Eyre Might Need to Bum a Few Bucks

Wanna hear a story that’ll make you happy you never struck it baseball player-rich? Alright, here it goes: Phillies pitcher Scott Eyre invested almost all of his money into the Stanford fraud scheme. His assets have all been frozen while the SEC investigates the case, leaving Eyre virtually broke. See! How lucky are you to have never had millions of dollars to invest in a Ponzi scheme? ↵

↵Seriously, this is kinda sad. Almost. But not really, because he’s still going to be a millionaire once he gets his money back: ↵

↵⇥"Right now, I'm trying to figure out how to pay my bills," the lefty reliever said Monday at Bright House Field. "I'm broke right now. I have no money. I have $13 in my wallet." … ↵⇥

↵⇥"I can't pay my bills right now," Eyre said. "My wife just wrote all these checks to pay bills, and they're all going to bounce. If it takes a week or two to get my money back, I'm going to have to ask my teammates for some money. Seriously, I'm going to have to ask them that. I can't get any money out." ↵⇥

↵
↵If it comes to begging teammates, might I suggest asking Ryan Howard. He might be able to help keep the lights on.↵
