The Yanks’ Tyler Clippard might’ve humbled the Mets the other night, but crusty Jim Baumbach manages to cut the rookie pitcher down to size.
Myspace tells us so much more about Tyler, things we obviously had no clue about. For example, Tyler lists his interests as, “Baseball! BUCKEYES! FINS! GIRLS!”
He lists “Dumb and Dumber” as one of his favorite movies, so he better hope he’s still on the roster when they travel to Anaheim again. The clubhouse guys there always seem to have that playing on the big screen for the players.
When he’s asked to list his heroes, young Tyler writes, “wow my heroes would be my DAD, my Grandfather, all our troops fighting for us in Iraq, especially u BOBBY!”
And then there’s the place where he posted some photos of himself pitching, drinking and looking at himself shirtless in the mirror ¦ typical pictures from a 22-year-old.
Soon, young Tyler’s page will probably go private, which means only his myspace friends can access it. Unless, of course, he chooses to be his generation’s Curt Schilling.
Without hoping to stifle anyone’s right to express themselves fully, I do hope MySpace can do something to prevent Curt Schilling from posting shirtless pics of himself staring into the mirror.
