I know it’s gonna sound blasphemous to say that this year, I’m gonna root for the Rays–since I spent the entire World Series wanting them to lose to my Phillies–but it’s true. Next year, I’ll be rooting for the Rays. I mean, I’ll still be rooting for the Phillies the most, the hardest, the loudest, and the most obnoxiously, but the Rays are now among my American League team favorites.
Now they have not just ONE hot guy on their team…
…they’ve got TWO hot guys on their team!
It looks like Pat the Bat will be a Ray this season! Congrats to the BILFalicious Pat the Bat. I’m sure he’ll do well as the Rays’ slugger! (At the very least, it keeps him away from the outfield and keeps him less tired.) I’ll miss staring at Pat’s sweet butt and nice hair in left field at Citizens Bank Park–Ibanez might be a slightly better player than Burrell, but Burrell’s the hotter of the two, by far!
It’s time to vote in the 2008 “This Year in Baseball” awards! And I’m here to suggest particularly BILFalicious ballplayers to vote for. 😉
First of all, the link to go vote is here:
Secondly, I have a beef with the awards. Where the hell is Cole Hamels? Why isn’t he one of the Starter nominees? Grrrr. He deserves to at least be nominated. After all, he’s the World Series MVP. It’s kinda obvious by now that he’s good.
And here are my picks (based on BILFiness, of course):
HITTER: Josh Hamilton. God, he’s gorgeous. And I dig his tattoos. Honorable mentions go to to Chipper Jones and Justin Morneau.
STARTER: Cliff Lee. If Hamels isn’t one o the choices, then I guess Lee will have to do. Sigh.
ROOKIE: For me, it’s a toss-up between Evan Longoria and Jacoby Ellsbury.
MANAGER: As if there are any hot managers in baseball!
CLOSER: Brad Lidge ’cause I’m a Philly girl at heart, but Joe Nathan’s hotter. Then again, Nathan doesn’t have a World Series ring…
SETUP: Grant Balfour, of course! Hot guy + Aussie accent…what’s not to love?
DEFENSE: Joe Mauer. I freakin’ ADORE Mauer. I know there are legions of ladies out there who prefer Grady Sizemore in this category, but I’m a Mauer girl through and through!
PERFORMANCE: These guys are all younger than the managers, but they’re just as hot…which is to say, not hot at all. Talented, yes, but no BILFs here…
PLAY: I’m gonna go with McLouth here solely based on the fact that I kinda like his hair.
MOMENT: Josh Hamilton (again), for his Home Run Derby awesomeness.
ODDITY: Longoria again, just because he appears to be the only decent-looking one out of the bunch.
EXECUTIVE: Hey, who’s this Theo Epstein guy? I’m not a huge Sox fan, but this guy could grow on me.
POSTSEASON MOMENT: Chase Utley, for a fantastic play in game 5 of the World Series. Gotta love the Chuttles!
…And who are you voting for in these awards? 🙂
