The Orioles signed Jamie Walker away from the Tigers with a three-year, $12 million contract.

Detroit closer Todd Jones, noting Walker’s Tennessee heritage, wondered how his former teammate would handle his newfound wealth:

“Twelve million dollars is a lot of money, but $12 million in Tennessee? He might as well be Donald Trump,” Jones told the Detroit Free Press. “That’s a lot of generic-brand beer, and a lot of NASCAR tickets.

“You know how many fishing lures you can buy at Wal-Mart with $12 million?”
