I hail from Nebraska, and I like to take pictures. I love the Royals more than what the Surgeon General recommends (the recommendation, in case you need to know, is about 4.5 milligrams per day for persons of average height and weight).
It’s my turn to be a complete homer. So much of a homer, in fact, that many of these photos are my own handiwork. Today’s hottie is Manuel* Pina, a catcher in the Royals’ system who caught a few games in the Majors last season.
*He’s listed everywhere as “Manny,” but a little old bird told me he hates being called that.
I don’t have many opinions about the New England Patriots. Really, I don’t. Out here in the safety of the AFC West, I don’t have to think about them much. One thing I do think is that Aaron Hernandez is kind of pretty just unfairly hot? I don’t know. Don’t judge me.
UPDATE: The link below should actually work, and in a non-mobile form. Sorry aout that.Assuming Miss Minda understands how to make this thingie work, we’re gonna liveblog this thing. RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW. (Which is French for “click that link right there.”) Olympics and OMG JOHNNY WEIR
Stat-nerds have been falling all over themselves in adoration of Franklin Gutierrez’s astounding CF defense, which is so stunningly awesome that the Mariners are hanging on to him for four more years. But don’t leave the F-Gut lovin’ to the statheads* – he’s someone the Ladies… can appreciate as well. Behold:
He is the WORLD. It says so right on his jersey.
*I, much like Crane, proudly belong to that set of people. Give me FanGraphs or give me death!
