Wanna buy Jeff Bagwell’s house?

54 Comments

It’s only $15 million. A bargain for 16,000+ square feet. Of course you’d have to move to Houston, and I wouldn’t wish that on anyone:

Magnificent estate privately situated, over 2.46 acres of incredible grounds on exclusive Timberwilde Lane. Extensively renovated & rebuilt 2009 by Steve Goodchild w/impeccable design & interiors by Marjorie Slovack. Grand gallery. Fabulous formals. Wine vault. Gourmet kitchen open to den. Billiard room/media room. Luxurious master suite. 4 guest suites. Loggia w/summer kitchen & fireplace. Saltwater pool/spa. 2 bedroom guest house. Separate fitness center/spa. Gated drive court + 6 car garage.

Downside: while there is absolutely no evidence for it whatsoever, there’s a nasty rumor going around that the place has mold. No one will say so publicly, but people suspect it and suspecting is good enough where Jeff Bagwell is concerned.

On Monday, the Pirates announced the club suspended reliever Keone Kela two games for an unspecified contract violation. Kela will begin serving the suspension tonight.

Kela, 26, went on the injured list in early May with a right shoulder injury. He was on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis for the last week and a half. Prior to the injury, Kela posted a 4.63 ERA with an 11/4 K/BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings.

After sitting out Monday and Tuesday, Kela can rejoin the Pirates on Wednesday in the middle of their four-game home series against the Cardinals.
