KRIS BENSON: THE BUTLER IS OUT


Kris & Anna Benson

Kris Benson will have surgery to repair a partially torn rotator cuff and will miss the entire 2007 season. The 32 year old Orioles right hander from Superior, Wisconsin missed the entire 2001 season following Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ligament in his elbow. Baltimore immediately signed Steve Trachsel to replace Benson in the rotation.

  1. Anna Benson.

    HEY, HEY, HEY.

  2. He definitely married up. Who was the pitcher who married the Whitesnake girl?? She also had good looks, in that “future biker chick” kind of way. :-)

    Offseason comment-Havlat of the Blackhawks definitely had the best looking escort at the Christmas party.

  3. Hey Bob,

    Chuck Finley was the pitcher who was married to Tawny Kitaen (the girl from the White Snake video).

    “She kicked him in the thigh, in the leg, in the arm, she grabbed his ear and twisted it,” Richards said. “At one point, her high-heel shoe was on top of his foot pressing the accelerator to the ground.” This is just an exerpt from the story of how she abused him. The complete story can be seen at http://espn.go.com/mlb/news/2002/0403/1362902.html

    As a sidebar, As Finley took the mound for an April 2002 game against the Chicago White Sox at then-Comiskey Park II, the stadium’s musical director, Joe Stephen, took a subtle dig at Finley’s messy divorce, and played “Here I Go Again” by the band Whitesnake, referencing Kitaen’s appearance in that band’s videos. Stephen was later fired and the White Sox apologized.
