Andrew Benintendi dances like Michael Jackson after Red Sox win


Andrew Benintendi was born in 1994. That was three years after Michael Jackson’s last good album — “Dangerous” — was released. It was 15 years after “Off the Wall” came out. Which is to say that, for Benintendi, Michael Jackson isn’t even a matter of nostalgia. He’s ancient HIStory. It’s the Past, not the Present or Future. For a guy as old as I am, thinking about such things is Bad.

Still, the AL East race this year has been a Thriller, and Benintendi and his teammates can be excused for celebrating yet another big win over a division rival. King of Pop-style:

If you think it’s too much, maybe you just don’t get what it’s like to a major league ballplayer. Really, to understand what these guys are feeling, you Got to Be There.

Um, Ben.
