Stern Awarded

A bit of month-old news so fun that I'm not sure how we missed it! On January 13, 2007, Adam received the first-ever Stubby Clapp Award. in recognition of "desire, competitiveness and a never-say-die attitude."

After being with the Boston Red Sox, Stern is looking for a steady job with the Orioles, who have Jay Payton, Corey Patterson and Nick Markakis in the outfield.

"Being dealt to Baltimore was a good move," Stern said. "For a young guy to break in with Boston was harder."

True, unfortunately. Also in the article, we learn that Adam is essentially Justin Morneau's housewife:

Morneau, a Team Canada grad, made $385,000 US in 2006 and will jump to the $2 million-$3 million range, unless he signs a long-term deal. The first baseman doesn't have to spend on cleaning help this off-season. Stern, his off-season roomie looks after the New West apartment.
"I keep things tidy, he autographs bats for me, it's a good deal," said Stern, a Baltimore Oriole.
