Video: J.P. Arencibia as Tim Kurkjian

If Batting Stance Guy thought his job was safe, he was wrong; he’s got company. Witness:

J.P. Arencibia’s OBP leaves a lot to be desired, there’s no doubt, but he brings the laughs. And, sometimes, that’s enough. I’m with Tito: I hope JPA wins the MVP.

H/Ts: The one and only Buster Olney, and the equally one and only Emma Span.

    I just wished JPA would have mentioned his love for sac-flies.

    Funniest thing I’ve seen a player do in a long time. Love how we get a little Francona in there too.

    Not bad, but not enough references to obscure meaningless stats. I NEED to know how many home runs Jose Bautista hit on Wednesdays off pitchers whose last name contains at least 3 vowels. Thats Kurkjian’s wheelhouse
