Yeah, R.A. Dickey is all serious and quotable and vaguely mystical and a humanitarian and mature and a tremendous story and won a Cy Young and everything, and it was kind of a Big Deal when he came to town last week to meet the Human Interest sector of the local media, but… uh… have you checked out Jose Reyes’s Instagram?
He miiiiiiiiiiight kinda be the best.
and, of course, wit:
So let’s celebrate! Jose Reyes is in town! He’s pretty much going to be crazy adored when all is said and done, so why not get things off on the right foot by giving something close to as much of a shit about his presser as we did about Dickey’s? Is my sense wrong here? Are people more amped up about this than I’m figuring? Because they should be! I mean, I don’t want to be too much of a damn cheerleader, but… here’s a guy with an Alomar-esque career path, a four-time All-Star, batting champ, and triples machine, who’s fourth among active big leaguers in career stolen bases, coming to town to join a World Series contender. It’s kinda fucking nails.
As with Dickey’s big to-do last week, when the event gets going at 4 PM ET, you can watch the presser live on BlueJays.com.
