it’s true… Adrian Beltre reacts badly whenever anyone, even teammates, rubs his head. Someone has even posted a collection of videos of him getting his noggin rubbed up and his rather upset reaction to it.
Now he’s with the Rangers but it doesn’t look like his new teammates are too sensitive to his concerns.
Take Elvis Andrus, for example:
Oh yeah … a bunch of times. He better get used to it. He might kick my tail, but I’m going to do it.

I chuckled a bit when the wife brought these Feline “Greenies” treats home for our cat. Whatever gets our cat through her day, I guess.
My first thought? Pete Rose.
I ran this by a younger baseball fan (by younger, I mean someone born after the Ford Administration). He gave me a blank stare. Perhaps the more “seasoned” baseball fans out there remember the significance of “greenies” in baseball.
Oh yeah, drugs aren’t funny.
Life.com presents us with a slideshow of “Baseball’s Ugliest Uniforms. Ever.”
I respectfully disagree on some of them. Many include uniforms from the 1970s. Those unis were bright, colorful and some would even say gaudy. They reflected the times when people sought to differentiate themselves and saw no shame in it.
Later, the late 90s and the 00s brought us the era of conformity and corporate standardization in term of uniforms. Even the smallest change brings the loudest call of condemnation. The other symptom of recent times is the constant change in uniforms or excuses to bring out a new line uniforms presumably to increase the bottom line for MLB.
So yes, getting back to my original point, I do like the older 70s uniforms. They may be gaudy from today’s perspective but they hearken back to a day when I grew up with the game.
Besides, if you want to talk about ugly baseball uniforms, I’m surprised Life.com didn’t have THESE on their list:

Looks like someone is floating Todd Zeile’s name out as a HOF candidate.
All kidding aside, Teddy Ballgame already posted earlier about TZ being the only player to hit for more than ten major league teams.
Apparently, he also committed more errors than anyone in the 1990s, a record I never knew about.Tags: fun, Hall of Fame, Todd Zeile
