Awesome link! And I finally got to see the Tejada to Murphy sparkling double play and got a good laugh too!

and don't miss the Colon AB link on the right, worth the 2 minutes.

Speaking of Tejada, when are pitchers going to pitch to him. He's horrible and has been for two years but he has 9 walks already moving his OBP up over 300. Two easy outs every time around their line up and managers are giving one of those outs away each time!

Hmmm, I don't think they doctored the Pujols image.

Well, they aren't just fat, they are pear-shaped fat!

RBI Baseball answered this question for us decades ago.
   7. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: April 25, 2014 at 02:18 PM (#4694245)
They only made the players involved with the play fat. When other fielders, etc. come into the shot, they're thin. Takes me right out of the moment. Come on, guys, if you're gonna do it, do it right.

So many Prince Fielders!

Make sure to watch it until the end for David Ortiz.
   10. What's the realistic upside, RMc? Posted: April 25, 2014 at 04:46 PM (#4694412)
Looks like I should get my old glove and try out, eh?

Was this what the softball game was like last summer?

So many Prince Fielders!

Finally, proof that a Prince Fielder sized player would still have more range at shortstop than Derek Jeter!

Shooty applied for a field a few weeks back and is awaiting word from the city.

Oh bloody aitch, I emailed him to ask about that a couple weeks ago and didn't hear back. I have to be out of town one weekend in August and if he chose that weekend I'll be....well, I guess I'd have to say that would be the wise choice, so I'm hoping he went for the comedy instead and chose another.

HA HA HA FAT PEOPLE BWAAAAHHHA THEY'RE SO FAT

Yeah, I'm going to be that guy, sorry.

Woohooo! Although it isn't like the whole place wasn't completely empty last time.

Skinny David Ortiz is the best part of this. Second best is the slowed down announcers voices.
