Which Baseballer Should Appear on Yo Gabba Gabba?

It came to this author’s attention recently that basketballer Metta World Peace is to appear in an upcoming episode of Yo Gabba Gabba.

If you are not familiar with Mr. World Peace’s work, note that he is a forward/crazy person for the Los Angeles Lakers. He is one of my favorite basketball players, not because of his play (which has diminished over the years), but because of his general disregard for social normalcy and civilized behavior.

If you are not familiar with the television show Yo Gabba Gabba, note that it is a show on the Nickelodeon network enjoyed by children, hipsters, and of course hipster children. Its style beckons back to that of Sid and Marty Krofft , with its colorful fantasy characters and overt drug overtones.

But why, fair readers, should only NBA players be allowed to appear on this delightful program? Surely an MLB player would provide a passable performance whilst also giving baseball more exposure to the doomed youth of today.

So which baseballer would you like to see in Yo Gabba Gabba? The winner of the below poll will have an abbreviated episode written for them by yours truly. If you feel that I’ve unfairly excluded someone (and I’m sure you do), please provide your write-in choice in the comments.

Vote early. Vote often. And, for God’s sake, think of the children.
