Video of the Day: David Wright and 'The Situation'

Leave a comment

I’m guessing there’s a pretty sizable overlap between Mets fans and Jersey Shore fans, so when you guys are finished with the daily “GTL” routine check out this amusing commercial featuring David Wright and “The Situation”:

What’s more amazing? Wright already has as many homers as he hit through May 2 last season or The Situation’s fame clock continues to tick past 15 minutes?

No surprise here: Chris Sale will start on Opening Day for the Red Sox, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. The Red Sox open the season on March 29 in Tampa Bay against the Rays. Sale will oppose Chris Archer.

Sale, 28, is the fifth different Opening Day starter the Red Sox have had in as many years, preceded by Rick Porcello, David Price, Clay Buchholz, and Jon Lester. Sale started on Opening Day for the White Sox in 2013, ’14, and ’16.

Sale finished second in AL Cy Young Award balloting last year and finished ninth for AL MVP. He went 17-8 with a 2.90 ERA and a 308/43 K/BB ratio in 214 1/3 innings. Sale and Clayton Kershaw (2015) are the only pitchers to strike out 300 or more batters in a season dating back to 2003.
