Denver Post: Todd Helton Greek-fantasy centaur fan painting

Someone needs to look into these side effects:

We’re not sure what exactly is happening in this fan’s painting of Todd Helton as a half-man, half-horse centaur hybrid carrying a baseball bat in a mythical highland swamp at the foot of a soaring mountain range.

But we’re pretty sure it’s not accurate. The 40-year-old Todd Helton hasn’t been in that kind of shape in awhile.

There’s a photo in the link.

A-Rod was glad to discover that he was not the last of his kind, but added with a tear that since there are no known female centaurs, that they're likely the last generation.

Vin already calls Puig the "wild horse," so Yasiel would be the obvious candidate for the Dodgers.

It's not as funny if he didn't commission it himself.

I mean, there's an entire genre of naked Obama on a unicorn.

Wow, Zach. Just wow.

Is this the same guy who did the Josh Fogg dragon slayer painting?

Jeez, I'd hate to be a clubhouse guy in Denver. In Boston all you need are a lot towels, not a shovel.

Copycat.

Are you accusing me of being Dane Cook? Because I will track you down...
