OK, it’s hard to take things the St. Paul Saints do seriously. They’re the team that let Darryl Strawberry
snort lines in the dugout return to baseball after he had gone to jail, hosted DL Drew after that punk wouldn’t sign with the Phillies, and they provided a last opportunity to mid-90s catcher Matt Nokes. And thanks to One More Dying Quail who was posting up at Awful Announcing over the weekend, I was directed to 7’3″ Milwaukee native Dave Rasmussen who struck out on 3 pitches in a game while wearing jersey number 73. Since you, just like me, are into pink elephants, two-headed snakes, and chicks who can have sex upside-down, you probably want to see what a 7’3″ baseball player looks like at the plate. Save yourself some time and skip ahead to the 3:20 mark.
It’s hilarious. The guy doesn’t even take any warm-up swings. And the bat looks like a tooth pick in his arms. The dudes freakin’ forearms are longer than the stick. No joke, I think I had a better swing when I was five.
