Finally....I didn't know Sylvester Stallone played baseball....
I've decided to become a Buster Posey collector. Maybe it's the name....it is kind of cute. Does this make me a Posey Poseur? Wikipedia says "A 'poseur' is someone who pretends to be something he is not." So I guess I'm alright because I AM a Buster Posey collector now. I'm not pretending. Right? So If there are any real Posey poseur's out there who are pretending to be Posey collectors....feel free to send me your stuff! Here's what I have so far.
In the 2009 World Series, Matsui helped the Yankees defeat the defending champion Philadelphia Phillies, 4 games to 2, by hitting .615 (8 for 13) with 3 home runs and 8 RBI, including tying Bobby Richardson's single-game World Series record (Game Three of the 1960 World Series) with six RBIs in Game 6. Since the designated hitter position was not used in the three games in Philadelphia, he only started the three games in New York; nevertheless, his performance earned him the World Series Most Valuable Player Award.
On December 16, 2009, Matsui agreed to a one year deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim worth $6.5 million.
Matsui greeted by his former teammates during the Yankees' 2010 home opener. He received his 2009 World Series ring before the game along with the rest of his former team.
Watching Ryan Spilborghs in the background is hilarious! Not to mention Todd Helton and his ability to keep a straight face! Pretty funny! I just wish I understood Spanish. I'd love to know what Carlos Gonzalez is really saying!
What does it take to perform the ultimate slide?
Run full speed toward the bag.
When you are approximately five feet away from the bag, tuck whichever leg you are most comfortable with under the other leg.
Your legs should create an upside down number four.
Slide into the bag with your outstretched leg, the first part of your body that touches the base and allows you to avoid the tag from the defensive player as well.
