This Kid’s Really Good at Batting Stances

When you were younger, didn’t you fashion your swing after your favorite player? Moreover, didn’t you used to be able to impersonate the stances of every player on your team, and many of the best players in the league? Shoot, I used to have Will Clark down perfectly, with the stiff leg and the sleeve roll up, I was money. My buddy Rey used to do a mean Darin Erstad. Mickey Tettleton used to be a favorite amongst my crowd, with his stiff-bodied slow bat raise. Oh, the days.

Well, I’m a long ways away from reproducing, but I can guarantee you my kid will be able to do this, via Matt Watson at MLB FanHouse:

I could watch it over…and over…and over…and over…and over…and over…

You get the point.

Previously I’ve mentioned the marketing campaigns of the Rockies. The Twins have also put together a pretty solid commercial with Johan Santana and Joe Nathan. But nothing compares to the next few commercials that I will show you. First, via Ball Hype and Matt Watson at MLB FanHouse, don’t let Frank Thomas tuck your kids in at night:

The crappy part is the Canada deemed it unfit for public eyes. Why on Earth would that be?

Now, this Vernon Wells commercial is pretty funny as well:

And lastly, Troy Glaus shows off his power:

Like I said, the Blue Jays are a lot of fun (and a great reason to root against the Yankees).
