Rock Shoulders Surrounded by The Rock’s Shoulder

I have deemed it too long since the last installment of NotGraphs’ Men Surrounded By Things series, so I present the Cubs’ first base prospect Rock Shoulders surrounded by wrestler/actor The Rock’s shoulder. Both subjects are delightful mixes of muscularity and artfulness.

This has been Men Surrounded By Things.

I bid good weekends to you all.

Speaking of installments, when are we going to get another Ironic Jersey Omnibus? Lots of fans are waiting for their favorite teams to be covered!

I have to roll those out slowly; they drain the hell out of me.

But the real answer: next week. Probably Wednesday.

This post just prompted me to spend roughly 30 minutes trying to put together the All-Minor League Name Team. The results:

Catcher – Stryker Trahan
1b – Rock Shoulders
2b – Scooter Gennett
3b – Zelous Wheeler
SS – Xander Bogaerts (strong competition from Jurikson Profar on this one)
LF – Seth Schwindenhammer
CF – Gauntlett Eldemire (not really a CF)
RF – Michael Rockett

SP – Michael Goodnight
RP – Duke von Schamann

And a few from pre-2012 because the names were so awesome, but they didn’t play in MiLB in 2012:

Shooter Hunt, pitcher (last played 2011)
Gunner Glad, 2b/3b/OF (played independent ball in 2012)

and probably the best of all time:

Sequoyah Trueblood Stonecipher, OF (Marlins short-season, 2010)

Zebulon Sneed.

I very, very strongly approve of this listing, but agree on the inclusion of Zebulon J. Sneed. A little iffy at 2B, maybe.

Also, Sequoyah Trueblood Stonecipher reminds me of Stonecipher Beadsman, naturally.

No disrespect to the Duke, but the relief pitcher has to be Damien Magnifico

An inexcusable omission. Scooter Gennett out, Rougned Odor in. Done.

This reminds me of the first ever Cistulli-Perry podcast, where Carson said Dayn looked like the Rock in the photo below.
