In Which Zito Channels a Disgruntled 50-Something Business Man

Wait.  Seriously?

I feel like I say this a lot (okay, I know I say it a lot) but that is atrocious. 

It ages him a million years.  He looks like a disgruntled 50-something business man who’s never really been the boss and probably never will be.  The mustache would best be paired with a sort of outdated suit and slightly battered briefcase.  Everyone always says Zito seems young so maybe the aging thing is on purpose.  Lindsay/Britney/Miley Syndrome.

It was really nice to get to watch the game today.  This may be unpopular, but Gameday makes me incredibly sleepy within about ten minutes.  Not to mention distracted.  I always forget to check it and then I look and too many things have happened with people I’ve never even heard of.   All spring I’ve been busy on the weekends and not able to listen to the games on the radio, so it was nice to be able to really follow a game, play by play.  Lots of interesting stuff out there. 

And you know how everyone’s saying the season is starting next week?  I don’t buy it.  It has been raining here for weeks and it is showing no signs of stopping.  No way can baseball happen here.

p.s.  Has anyone else noticed that Minor League baseball players have the best names ever?  Funny that Major Leaguers never do.  The guys with the good names must not make it.

    With the deal he got, Zito should be anything but a disgruntled business man. I’ll give him credit for growing it out and not just painting it on, though. Does Tiny Tim still have his stache in effect?

    Diamond Girl:
    1) The MLB name Van Lingo Mungo is pretty fantastic. Of course he played a long time ago. But how about Coco Crisp?
    2) Below his nose, Barry now looks like Jeff Kent. But he will never look like a CHP officer, and Kent always will.
