Soon to be ex-Anna Benson runs her mouth

Kris Benson & Wife Anna Head for Divorce

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Anna Benson wants a divorce from Baltimore Orioles pitcher Kris Benson, who still thinks the New York Mets traded him because of his impulsive wife.
Anna Benson, an actress and model who has posed topless, filed for divorce in Atlanta on Thursday. The petition for divorce claims the marriage is "irretrievably broken."
The couple has been married for seven years.
Kris Benson initially protested the deal that sent him to the Orioles. But now he thinks the Mets did him a favor.
"I was a little upset because I enjoyed my time in New York and I feel like they had a good team coming into the season," Benson said in a recent interview. "But now that I realize the opportunity I have, it's going to be a good career move for me."
Now, it appears as if he will go at it alone.
Mets general manager Omar Minaya contended that Anna Benson was not a factor in the trade. Kris Benson isn't buying it.
"New York is just a world of its own. I knew that coming in, but you learn that a little more when you get put in the spotlight like that in a negative and undeserving way," Kris Benson said. "It was a little frustrating at the time because people kind of believe what they read. For her it's been a little tough, because they kind of portray her in a negative light."
Anna Benson wore a provocative dress at the team Christmas party, and there was talk that she was considering posing nude for Playboy. Kris Benson bristles at the memory.
"Some people are already seeing the trade as a negative thing. There are a lot of things that don't add up when it comes to the reasoning behind it," he said. "There's a lot of hearsay, a lot of rumors floating around about the reason why. Lately, a lot of people are suspecting foul play in terms of one thing being said and the truth being different."
Look, the Mets didn't trade you to Baltimore because they got a great deal, but because that soon to be ex-wife of yours was trouble with a capital T. Her right wing rantings. her slutty behavior, her sewer-like mouth, all hurt you.
Because she made you look like her bitch. She was running the show and humiliating you. What was next, washing her underwear in the sink?
Minaya and Randolph are not easygoing guys. They are not going to have an Anna Benson, trampy ex-stripper, ruining their team. That shit she said about Delgado sealed your fate. Carlos agreed to play along, and then she tossed that shit in the air about him not standing for the pledge. He did a big thing, and she jumped in the middle with her fucking mouth.
Good riddience to bad rubbish.
