Off Day Thoughts

After watching Mark Teixeira throughout the two game mini-series against the Yankees, I finally figured it out. His “game face” in the batter’s box emulates that of a rabbit eating a carrot. Don’t believe me? Take a look below.

Consider Teixeira a close second to Jonathan Papelbon for having the best “Douchestare in the Majors”.

Another thing I’ve noticed this season has to do with Kevin Millar’s batting stance. I figured I better point this out before he’s sent his walking papers, but much like Scott Rolen, Millar has a stance similar to that of one of the characters from Bases Loaded.

With tomorrow’s Back2Back reunion game, Operation “JC Autograph Retreival” is in full effect. Last year I tried but failed to make it in time to see Joe Carter in person, so hopefully I will have a chance to redeem myself tomorrow and get JC to sign my baseball. If all else fails, at least Candy Maldonado will be seated next to Joe Carter and could be a second option.

    Every time I look Teixeira now, he looks like a distrunted rabbit with a baseball bat. Something similar to Bucky O'Hare, but without being green.

    It seems like whenever I find a player I really don't like and who I am willing to make fun of how they look, it is short time before (some) Jays fans are wishing that player would come be a Jay — last case in point was Jason Giambi. I'm not criticizing anybody's face.
    … But you're right!

    Oddly enough, I think I posted something last summer talking about how the Jays should sign Tex (rabbit face included).

    Johnny Damon is another weird one. He looks like he's doing the pee-pee dance in the batter's box. Either that, or he's a chicken because he keeps kicking his back leg.
