Around the Horn: Favorite Player

Y'all, are you as excited as I am that baseball season is literally right around the corner? I didn't get to talk baseball last week because I was busy vlogging with the best of 'em. Sorry, Kasey. I promise to do better!

I'm going to be honest, y'all. It doesn't really take much for a player to make it to my "favorites" list. I mean, they all wear those really amazing tight pants, right? I do have two people that immediately jump to mind.

Bobby Cox.
Yes, he is retired and he hasn't actually played baseball since 1970 but he did play! He retired as the Braves manager. He's one of my favorites because it was always fun to see how many times he would get thrown out of a game. It was a sport in and of itself. It was exciting and hilarious at the same time. Don't believe me? Watch...

and my other favorite?
Brian McCann.
I can (kind of) forgive him for going to the Yankees. Kind of. I'm still a little sore about that. Not only do I feel like he's a great player, but he also had really great at bat music when he was with the Braves. As far as I know, he doesn't have at bat music with the Yankees. The last song he had with the Braves was All I Do is Win. I can't help it, y'all. I just really love this song for some reason.
So there you have it. I'm a cheap date and will add you to my favorites list if you have tight pants, fun music, and get kicked out of a game.

Who is your favorite player?
Link up with Kasey and Jessa to share!

  1. I kinda miss BMac.... I LOVE BOBBY. I was hoping they would hire him to do something or other important after he retired. also, any time I hear Crazy Train I ALWAYS say "oh, is Chipper here?" + people don't think it's nearly as funny as I do.

  2. I worked at our city's baseball stadium for a summer. LOVED it! I worked retail, but I had the chance to sell the items that no one wanted...haha...outside, by the stands, and I could watch every game. Trying to get sweet "older" men to buy too-big-for-anyone's-heads Arizona Diamondback's hats. It was an experience. LOVED watching the games. Fun post :)

  3. LOL I would absolutely laugh with you when Crazy Train comes on! hahaha. you're not alone!!

  4. how fun is that?! That's such a cool memory! :D

  5. Ah Bobby....

    Okay I was OBSESSED with Javi Lopez when he was with the Braves and then there's Chipper of course!

  6. right?! He was just so fun to watch get thrown out! LOL

  7. LOL clearly bobby was a great pic. aaaahhh memories! LOL. and HOW could I have forgotten about Javi?! I'm not a huge chipper fan. I mean, he's a great player but I feel like he's everyone's go-to pick. lol
