Evan Longoria and Jaime Edmondson are expecting their first child this week. Being the generous guy that he is, Longoria’s Tampa Bay Rays teammate David Price wanted to buy the couple something useful from their baby registry. After all, I can’t imagine there’s much a former Playboy Playmate and a professional baseball player can’t afford to buy for their child on their own.
According to USA Today, Price asked Longoria for some feedback on what he should get from the registry. From the sound of it, he was given an honest answer.
“A breast pump,” Price said. “Hey, Evan told me to buy a breast pump. So I bought a breast pump. Most expensive thing on the registry and I have to buy it.”
Such is life for a guy who will make $10 million in 2013 and probably another $200 million before his career is over if he remains healthy. Breast pumps can cost around $300, but relatively speaking a $300 gift from Price is like a $15 gift from someone who makes $50,000 a year. The flamethrower should have no problem affording it. That’s what friends are for.
