In today’s depressing news, “@Yoenis_Cespedes” on Twitter is not really the Cuban outfielder who reportedly closed a deal with the A’s yesterday worth $36 million. (You could buy about ten gourmet cupcakes ‘round here with that kind of money.) Why is this depressing? Check out one of the account’s recent tweets:
also my fans i will be honest with u on this ok i really like oakland a jerseys and shoes they are very style and miami was just ok really
I was seriously clapping my hands together in glee at reading that. I was all, “We have someone who is actually vaguely fashion-conscious on a Bay Area sports team!” (Barry Zito lost that title when he wore this, of course.) Then Jane Lee, of mlb.com, went and shot down once and for all that that was really his account. Which was good journalism and everything, but still decidedly depressing.
I do have to agree with the troll- I mean, person- running the fake account, though. Oakland’s uniforms are a thousand times better than those Miami ones. Especially those new weird rainbow ones that they’re rolling out with their new stadium which may or may not also be rainbow themed. Unconfirmed on that, but I’m working on it. If anyone every did a baseball themed fashion show, I would totally recommend the A’s as a model. Open for loose interpretation, of course. Loose loose interpretation. Just because I said they’re good in the scheme of baseball uniforms doesn’t mean I’m saying they’re ready for the runways.
Anyhow! The Giants were so kind as to inform me very cheerfully via iPhone notes app that Spring Training is now three days away.
This was the photo reminder. Instagramed, no less.
Three days! Staying on the topic of cupcakes, since I can make cupcakes from scratch in just under 13 minutes, I could make about 220 batches of cupcakes, which is about 2640 cupcakes, between now and Spring Training starting. Perhaps enough to feed the Giants 25 man roster? Or to open my own gourmet cupcake shop that sells them for a slightly more reasonable price?
That would, of course, all be contingent on my taking no breaks on the baking front for three days. Not even to check Twitter or scroll through photos of badly dressed celebrities. Read: unlikely.
Still, this all goes to show that Spring Training is very soon. To make a long story short. Which is good news indeed.
