Walker is due for a big extension next off-season, and Lowe does not think he offers enough right now to be a $12 million dollar man.

    I have not seen it and do not plan to see it personally. The article that comments on it warns the listener that the lyrics are explicit. One look at the title could tell you THAT. Stephenson is a brand and a persona, and you must remember that in signing the player, we also signed those other aspects.
