Pictures from an Exhibition

Players win record arbitration increase
VP of RSN: Teixeira will 'get booed as much as A-Rod'

The Yanks got to suffer through the spring ritual of picture day last week, and while I don’t really know what happens with these pictures, the results sure are bizarre. The Sports Hernia took a look at some of the stranger and more humorous photos. Andy Pettitte looks might surprised to see the camera, and Derek appears, well, just vacant. For more, check out Getty Images. CC Sabathia looks either very happy or rather pensive.

Players win record arbitration increase
VP of RSN: Teixeira will 'get booed as much as A-Rod'

    CC had the flu, Girardi said he was puking. He should of just said he wasn’t feeling too hot.

    When the Hell did Edwar Ramirez become a burn victim?

    What the hell happened to his eyebrows?

    • Paulie

      He looks like an alien.

    • Mike Pop

      All those closeups are pretty horrible.

      • Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

        Yeah, but maybe Edwar never had any eyebrows to begin with.

        I forget we usually see him wearing those thick glasses.

          Here’s my favorite. (Mancrush)

            He killed the Sox last year. I can’t wait for the season to start.

              Gonna be freaken awesome man!1!1!1!1!1!

                A.J. really should be the man this year. He could very well lead the league in strikeouts again. I’m curious how much Dave Eiland has been working with him and if they’ve tweaked any part of his approach. I liked what Eiland did in his first year as pitching coach.

      He’s trying to send a message to Michael Cera to just sign-on for the freaking Arrested Development movie already.

    Heh, I bet this is Joe Girardi’s “yeah, talk shit about me this season, Peter (Abraham), see what happens” face: http://tinyurl.com/dan3ud

      Ha. I think Joe should find a cap that fits his head, he looks like he’s 6.

    • Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

      Jamal, check out PA’s article on Joe this morning.

      Great read, and judging by the quotes from Cash, Pena and Damon it wasn’t some personal vendetta by Pete. Joe had some kinks to iron out, and it appears he’s done so.

      BTW-Kudos to Pete for writing it. Very professional on his part.

    is it just me or do these pictures make the players look sickly? check out that mariano rivera one 4th row down – i didn’t even know that was him.

          hahahahahahahahaha well done!

    • UWS

      Jeter looks like he’s about 50. Yikes.

      And ARod looks depressed. And Mariano looks…unrecognizable. God, these are horrid!

    DJ looks old.

      Very good. You know your Russian composers. The name of his piece was Pictures At An Exhibition, but so the title here is merely evocative and not duplicative.

      • !ny

        Exactly ;)

  • JM

    Heh… CC was posing like he was a deep thinker or something.

  • Elle

    Is the photographer a Red Sox fan? Because there’s no excuse for making them look so unattractive.

    Although now every time I see Girardi I’m going to be waiting for him to go a X-Men’s Toad on a foul ball.
