Photo: Stealing Second, Revisited

Navin Naswani showed you this interesting photo last week:

What he failed to highlight, however, was the presence of Friend of Site, Ejector of Fears, Joe West. Yes, ol’ Westy actually inspired this event, spinal tapping the base-pilfering hippie — demanding he eject the second base by all means necessary. Computer, ENHANCE!:

God bless that Micronian.

    Sorry, Bradley, this one’s clearly a fake. No way would The Great Ejector tolerate that kind of malfeasance on a ballfield. If he was there, he would’ve been ejecting the bellbottomed hippie, not the base.

    That kind of aggression will not stand, man.

        Perhaps the picture is accurate, but the conclusion is invalid. It is my contention The Great Ejector is attemptiong to eject the hippie’s hair, a feat he accomplished in the not so recent past with Barry Zito’s ‘stash.

        If NotGraphs Investigative Reporting Investigation Team were to obtain a photo three seconds after the one above, we could determine if the hippie’s hair was indeed ejected or if mini Joe West approves of pilfering the keystone.
