Animated Gif: Brett Lawrie Tackles J.P. Arencibia

If it seems like Brett Lawrie has been involved in the lion’s share of animated gif’s around these parts latey, it’s because he has.

This one is a few days late, but it’s of Brett Lawrie bolting from the dugout and running towards J.P. Arencibia after Saturday afternoon’s walk-off win versus the Baltimore Orioles.

Judging by how quickly Lawrie was running towards Arencibia, I was a little frightened for his life. It must be been a little scary for J.P. watching a 215 pound jacked-up teammate barreling down on him. After all, there doesn’t seem to be a “mellow setting” on the Brett Lawrie dial.


Luckily, J.P. was not speared to the ground by the Canadian equivalent of Goldberg, and he even avoided being jerseyed by Brett Cecil.
