    how long did it take to find all these photos? Its a pretty funny post. I like the picture with the high five towards the beginning.

  • camilo Gerardo

    i like kostroun 4 of 4

  • Erica

    THANK YOU FOR THIS POST.

    Not many people understand my love for Frankie Ceez. I will proudly wear his tee shirt today!

  • Monteroisdinero

    I like Frankie but I can’t see him playing much this year if Martin is halfway decent and healthy. Might be traded in a package for a pitcher come June if/when Montero joins us. Or maybe Martin goes but Frankie is cheaper and Martin is not 10x better at that price.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    He’s Venezuelan-Italian, soccer folk, he’s practically bred to be overdramatic.

    • http://www.canyonofblueshirts.com Canyon of Blueshirts

      There’s no combination that could make an athlete more flamboyant

      • Andy in Sunny Daytona

        Could you imagine Frankie the Striker? He would flop every time someone got within a half a foot of him.

    • Steve in PDX

      Watching his interviews are hilarious, with the mix of strong Italian features and strong Venezuelan accent.

  • Un Named Yankee Source

    I never thought that Frankie’s Face would bring so much Joy to my Morning!

  • Pasqua

    Frankie’s got that “I’m just happy to be here” vibe, which is why he’ll always be a fave. Overall talent be damned.

    • MikeD

      Frankie does have a talent, it just needs to be used correctly. He’s valuable as a back-up catcher who also has the ability to get on base. He should not be your team’s starting catcher, which is what he was last season.

  • oh hell

    It looks like someone has a serious man crush on old Frank here….

  • Knoblahhhhk

    This is extremely enjoyable. My personal favorite is the 12th one down.

  • vtswan

    Thanks for those great pics! I love this player no matter what anyone says about him. I hope the Yanks keep him around, I look forward to the games when he’s playing behind the plate, I love his enthusiasm and team spirit. As a female fan, he’s a hottie, too! Great eyes, accent and A**!

  • yankees=warriors

    Too funny. Thanks for the laughs!

  • http://www.twitter.com/sgreen3 Sam

    This was great … a lot of laughing going on over here. Frankie is nothing if not entertaining. Nice job.

    (golf clap)

    Bravo. Each one got progressively funnier.

    BTW-Where are all the weekend writers?

    • http://www.secondavenuesagas.com Benjamin Kabak

      Perfect storm of vacation and other responsibilities. Stephen’s visiting his aunt and uncle; Hannah was on a cruise.

        You guys pay really well!

  • Tank the Frank

    When did Derek Zoolander start playing baseball?

  • Beth

    Fran the Man!! Love him!!

  • Dream of Electric Sheeps

    Future Telemundo star…

  • The Real JobaWockeeZ

    I hope we see another pic of him in another team sometime next season.

    • vtswan

      Noooo! Keep him in da Bronx!

  • OldYanksFan

    Give me some Brains!
    I like the dude.
    He will never be a top starter, but I believe he will start for some bottom feeder he is trader to.

  • http://nyystadiuminsider.com Ross

    #15 is my favorite.

  • Pastadivingarod

    He is a black hole in the line up and hasn’t gone deep since summer 2009. Give me Jesus anyday, bye bye blue eyes

  • Pastadivingarod

    We couldn’t even lay him off on the dodgers who had their own black hole .

  • JCK

    #15 is amazing.
