BSG and Manny Ramirez

BSG and Manny Ramirez

There’s really no good reason Manny Ramirez should ever be chasing a wiffle ball bat for someone, we don’t know why he did it for us, but he did.  Thanks Manny.  The AP says what this is better than we could.   “Gar Ryness is known as the ‘Batting Stance Guy’. He does impressions of major leaguers in their batting stances. Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez loved his mimickry.”  “Loved” is a relative term.  Enjoy.

The All-Goatee Team

Earlier this year BSG put down the razor for a few days to bring you good people the 1st and 2nd All-Mustache teams, the All-Beard team, and the first ever All-Fu Manchu team.  It was a strong, but incomplete effort.  Today he completes that illustrious set of facial hair goodness, by bringing you the best kept chin hairs in MLB history.  It’s the All-Goatee Team, in under a minute!

The 1986 New York Mets

The 1986 New York Mets

The Mets had a rough weekend, losing the subway series to the Yanks and ending their 7 game road winning streak.  And to add insult to injury, Johan Santana managed to tie the Mets’ single season record of 3 allowed grand slams in the process.  Ouch.  But fear not Mets fans, BSG is here to ease your pain with memories of times not so long ago.  So here they are, fresh out of 1986, the World Champion New York Mets.
