Spring Training, in picturesBy
Mike’s Sunday-night Picture Day post showed that, hey, for all the talk of the off-season, there’s nothing like seeing some baseball players. The posed photos were often hilarious, often awkward, and all in front of some nondescript background.
So how about some practice photos instead? Via an e-mail from loyal reader and frequent commenter Brian comes the New York Yankees photos from Daylife.
- Everyone loves a good run except for maybe Jason Giambi.
- Derek uses Spring Training to practice his patented fist-pump. It takes a weeks of reps for him to get into in-season form.
- A-Rod is just asking for a funny caption.
- Bobby Abreu looks like he’s bulked up a bit.
Soon, very soon, the games start, and then it’s just a short jaunt until Opening Day. I’m ready.
