I know everyone in Boston thinks Adrian Gonzalez is a gift from heaven (Does that make San Diego purgatory? I guess that makes us hell.lol) but while I like Adrian there is something he does that drives me absolutely insane. I know, How can anyone complain about Saint Adrian right? Ha sounds like they never met me.
I was sitting at the game today at Fenway park. I don’t remember the inning but Adrian hit the ball and then proceeded to WALK to first base. This isn’t the first time Adrian has walked after a hit he felt was going to be an out. Today he had a chance to be safe but we will never know if he could have been because he never put in the effort.
Is it that hard to run to first base? For heavens sake Babies can even run. I even found a program online that can teach you to run. Someone needs to enroll Adrian in this program A.S.A.P because I don’t know about you but I get a little cranky when I pay 60 dollars for a seat to a baseball game and the teams best player doesn’t feel like giving a 110 % effort.
You know who else was loved by Boston fans that didn’t feel the need to run out his hits? Manny Ramirez. God help us if we have another Manny on our hands.
If Adrian doesn’t feel like joining a program I found Marcus on youtube. Follow his lead Adrian. Follow his lead.
