There is a Cuban baseballer on the Oakland Athletics Boston Red Sox Detroit Tigers New York Mets named Yoenis Cespedes. When he became a free agent in 2011, he released a workout showcase video and sent it to all 30 major league general managers. The video is the stuff of legends, but what happened at the end of the video turned Cespedes from man into god.

Only a man as daring, brave, courageous and brilliant would send a video of himself roasting a pig over an open flame to every major league team. His boisterous biceps bounce in the breeze as his gesticulating gestures provide a feeling of comfort and safety. We just wish we had been invited to that CESPEDES FAMILY BARBECUE.


Jake Mintz: Born on the day Cal Ripken tied Gehrig’s record, baseball has been in his blood since birth, which is probably something he should talk to his doctor about. As a mediocre baseball player himself, Jake has valuable mediocre insight on the finer points of the game. Mintz has played against Steve Lombardozzi’s brother, Mike Cameron’s son, and has coached Emmanuel Burriss’ niece. Jake is a senior at Washington University in St. Louis and is a poo-slinging shutdown reliever for the baseball team. You can email him at mintz.jake@gmail.com.

Jordan Shusterman: As someone with the same birthday as Chuck Norris and Dayan Viciedo, Jordan lives a life full of high expectations. He is a Seattle Mariners fan because he enjoys extreme parks and sadness. He is a senior at the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio. You can e-mail him at jshusterman70@gmail.com, if you so desire.
