While hanging out at the MLB Fan Cave a bunch of players did impressions of various action movie stars to audition for a potential “The Expendables 3” movie:
A few things stand out here …
1) Derek Holland does a spot-on and surprisingly nuanced Arnold Schwarzenegger.
2) Jerry Hairston Jr. deserves credit, not only for doing a pretty solid Sylvester Stallone but for doing a pretty solid Sylvester Stallone from the movie “Over The Top.”
3) Dee Gordon is 11 years old and weighs approximately 73 pounds.
On Sunday, Rays outfielder Carlos Gomez hit a walk-off home run against the Twins. He was very fired up about his accomplishment and celebrated:
The Twins have already gotten upset with a player for bunting while Jose Berrios worked on a one-hit shutout. No one on the Twins said anything about Gomez’s antics, but even if they had, Gomez wouldn’t have felt any need to apologize, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Gomez said, “It’s something I know a lot of people are talking good about this, that baseball needs more of that. And some people say it’s not good. If enjoying and having fun in baseball is bad, I’m guilty.”
He added, “I was not trying to disrespect anybody. I was not looking to the other side, not looking at the ball. I was looking at my guys.”
Gomez also said that baseball is “getting a little boring.” His advice? “Enjoy it. Have fun. It’s competition.”
Can’t argue with that.
