Let’s Have a Hand for the Base Coaches!

bumper sticker.jpg

That’s the bumper sticker I want on my car.  If I had a car.  Dream car, by the way, is a BMW, like the one in The Ghost Writer.  Beautiful car and the GPS system can take you to the last place the predecessor at your job, who was murdered, visited.  It might even lead you to the same fate.  One more reason to want that car.

Anyway, my point is: I © Tim Flannery.  He won my heart forever when he told the story about him and Bochy on Inside the Clubhouse, Spring 2010.  “I’m 1-0, buddy.  Where’s the press conference?”  Great story. 

So my fondness for Flann has led me to notice that when the base coaches are announced (for the Giants, Roberto Kelly and Tim Flannery), no one cheers.  Except me, of course.  If you’re at the park sometime and hear someone cheering when the names are announced, look for me.  Or one of my family members or friends, smirking and clapping, in honor of my absence.

I know some people have a problem with Flannery’s coaching, but as Mychael Urban said, “he’s too entertaining to move.”  So for unbelievers, I suggest turning him into a cheerleader.  As you probably know, I am pioneering an idea for traditional, female cheerleaders in baseball, but MLB may not be ready for women in sparkly outfits to be on the field, so former coaches might be a good alternative.  Tim gets really into it and I think he’d be a fantastic cheerleader.

However you feel about it, please cheer next time the base coaches are announced.  In honor of me.  Thank you.

And about the new Giants new ad campaign, “It’s September Inside”?   You don’t say.  Last I checked it was September outside, too.

p.s.  Just to finish up on the fashion topic, CJ Wilson said, “I normally wear black [...] I just feel like if you’re going to look bad, you don’t stick it out in black.”  We have found our MLB player with the best fashion sense.  Best hair, best fashion sense.  I think he’s going to win it all, along with his team.

And the MLB Hair Awards Go To…

The Giants walked off against the Padres on Saturday.  Very exciting.  But what were the first words out of my brother’s mouth when the team stormed out of the dugout? 

“Look at Burrell’s hair!”

Explanation needed, right?  Because earlier in the broadcast the play-by-play guys had said that Burrell keeps his hat or helmet off in the dugout because he thinks he has the best hair in Major League baseball.  ::Alarm bells go off in Diamond Girl’s head::

I couldn’t find a source on Burrell’s quote on the internet, so don’t hold me to it.  But I, of course, thought, “no way!”  So here are my MLB hair awards.

Best hair:  CJ Wilson, of the Texas Rangers

I have become a Rangers fan.  Not just ’cause of Wilson’s hair.  Bengie is there too.

Most in Need of a Hair-Cut: Tim Lincecum, of the San Francisco Giants

Here’s the deal: Tim Lincecum has a long face.  Long face + long hair + long pants = you look long.  Which is a style, I guess, but I would at least recommend a trim, if not a serious navy cut.  I think he’d look great, like that.  He could also use shorter pants, but we’re talking hair, here, not fashion.

Best Electrocuted Hair: Freddy Sanchez of the San Francisco Giants

As mentioned in my last post.  Gotta wonder how much gel he uses, because it stands up even after hours under his hat.  If he ever needs a new gel, though, I could recommend some fantastic stuff that I use from time to time, to hold curls.  I’ve tried it out to spike my brother’s hair a little and it works well for that too.

Wickedly Craziest Hair: Barry Zito of (who else?) the San Francisco Giants.

On his website bio, Zito says, “the owner of some wickedly crazy hair.”  This photo is from his website, evidently to illustrate his point.

Most in Need of Growing Out Hair:  Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees

Picture is from the Eclipse premiere.  Yep, the Eclipse premiere.  Is A-Rod Team Jacob or Team Edward?  I have some issues with his sunglasses as well, but again, hair not fashion.

Most in Need of a Haircut and a Shave: Corey Hart of the Milwaukee Brewers

I could not, unfortunately find a picture of him sans hat or helmet, but this should give you a sense.

Most in Need of a Dye-Job: Juan Uribe of the San Francisco Giants

He doesn’t just need a dye job, he needs dye job to replace this one.  Come on, why blonde hair, Oo?

Hair: Brian Wilson of the San Francisco Giants

Hair.  Not best, not weirdest.  Just hair.  The t-shirt is fantastic as well.  It’s vote for Row.  As in Rowand.  But the goatee is basically horrible.  So ’08.

Okay, gals and guys.  Here we go.  Who do your hair awards go to?  They can be from any team and in any category; new categories are fine, as long as it’s someone who has spent time as a major or minor league player. 

X’s and O’s, friends.
