TMZ reports that Giancarlo Stanton will appear in Lexy Panterra’s new music video for her song , “So Good.” The video is too racy to embed, but here’s a direct link. Probably not a good idea to watch it at work, although I did.
Panterra gained a following on YouTube for her twerking videos. I’m not as old as Craig, but I felt old writing out that sentence. Back in my day, people got famous for playing with yo-yos and getting slimed on Nickelodeon.
Stanton, 27, is leading the majors with 51 home runs, a .665 slugging percentage, and a 173 adjusted OPS. He leads the National League with a 1.049 OPS. Along with all those numbers, he’s knocked in 110 runs, scored 103 runs, hit .292, and posted a .384 on-base percentage. He also looks good with his shirt off.
MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports that ESPN broadcaster Aaron Boone interviewed for the Yankees’ manager job today. No word as to whether he hit a big home run.
Boone, an ESPN analyst, obviously has some history with the Yankees, but he has no coaching experience at any level. Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote earlier this week of Boone that the Yankees “are intrigued if his charisma and passion can compensate for inexperience.” I’d say the answer to that question, whenever asked and in whatever context, is always “no,” but I suppose there’s a first time for everything.
So far the Yankees have interviewed Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge and Hensley Meulens. Yesterday Brian Cashman said there was no rush to fill the job, and that the Winter Meetings are not a deadline for the team in doing so.
