WHO'S THIS GUY?

Just for the record, that is not me on this card. It's Brad Coon from the Los Angeles Angles of Anaheim. It has my name on it, but his picture. I feel weird every time I have to sign this thing. Plus it is absolutely exhausting. For some reason I feel like it is my obligation to tell every person I sign it for that it isn't me. I feel like everybody has this card too. Every Spring Training I must sign at least 1000 of these. The funny part about it is, I hit righty, he hits lefty. He plays centerfield, I play 2nd base. He weighs 170 pounds I weigh 210. I can see how they got us confused.

  1. so how many of those little stickers did you have to sign for them to slap on a card that doesn't have your picture?
