"It serves him well"

I did not have to search long to find my important news feature of the day. It comes courtesy of slate.com and is called:

What Can You Learn from Staring at a Baseball Player's Butt?

My first thought was (of course): I'm supposed to be learning something???

quote
A lot of baseball players tend to have big asses". And while this "tends to be a pitcher thing," the boffo backsides aren't entirely confined to the mound. "Albert Pujols has a tremendous rump, and it serves him well,"
unquote

This reminds me that on Sunday evening, while lying deathly ill on my sister's couch, it was disappointing to watch Josh Beckett get off to such a lousy start this season. But he looked good. I would not classify his rump as tremendous, but it serves him well. I know he is pitching again tomorrow, but I don't know if it will be on t.v. locally. I may not get the opportunity to assess him.

Some baseball haikus :

Big Butt of the field
Step into the locker room
I'll be your towel


You there with the bat,
If I throw my balls your way
Will you hit on me


I am a home plate
And your ass is nice and big
So, please, slide my way.


Are you a pitcher?
Or are you more a catcher?
I go either way.


If Alec was third base,
And I did hit a triple,
I'd never go home.


JAW fan

Bill Lee knew. So did Warren Zevon.
