"Sugar" Ron Washington, everybody's favorite AL West manager, received the keys to a Cadillac at home plate today. Only it wasn't one of those shiny new Cadillacs that one might receive for managing a team to an AL pennant. The Dallas Observer explains:
And not just any Cadillac, but a black '85 Biarritz just like the one New Orleans resident Washington lost during Katrina. Perhaps you recall: Back in January, during the Dr Pepper Mid-Winter Awards Banquet, the team told Washington he was getting the new car courtesy Moritz Cadillac, which helped the Rangers find the ride. Here's one that run $13,500.
Per a press release: "Since that original announcement, the Cadillac has been refurbished and detailed by Moritz. The upholstery has been changed from red to white and a sunroof has been added to make the vehicle exactly as Washington's original model. The engine has also been replaced."
Well, it's not quite a long-term deal for Cliff Lee, but, you know, close enough.
