Carlos Gómez and Jake Bauers got a little too close for either’s comfort on Saturday.
One second you’re trying to catch a baseball, the next you’re bashing beans with a teammate like ... some sort of bean bashing competition. Look, sorry I’m at a loss for words here, I’ve just never seen two dudes scissor each other into oblivion like this before.
There has to be a cup quotient to this that makes the plan entirely riskier. Now, I’d have to imagine (and hope) that either both or neither were wearing cups, because if this was an inequitable cup situation it would have been disastrous.
Thankfully Bauers was okay.
No word on Gómez.
