I laughed: MLB players audition for “The Expendables 3”

6 Comments

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.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that starter David Price has been shut down for the remainder of the season during Wednesday’s appearance on WEEI’s Ordway, Merloni, and Fauria.

Price, 34, missed nearly a month between August 5-31 with a wrist injury (TFCC cyst). He returned on September 1, but lasted only two innings against the Angels and hasn’t pitched since.

Price ends a disappointing 2019 season with a 4.28 ERA and a 128/32 K/BB ratio in 107 1/3 innings across 22 starts. He’ll enter the fifth year of his seven-year, $217 million contract in 2020. $96 million remains on the deal.
