Ahh…it’s that time again. When the Yankees are off, my mind shifts gears. I think about how cute baseball players are. There are so many adorable ones. I love all 25 of my Yankees, evem the ones that are not physically attractive. But there are plenty of non-Yankees who woo me just the same. I’m going to narrow it down to 5. Let’s countdown, starting with the 5th cutest and ending with the most cute non-Yankee.
Gio Gonzalez of the Oakland Athletics
Everyone knows that I just love rookies. But hot rookies are even better. That is why I like Gio Gonzalez. I saw him pitch against the Yankees once. He had an ERA of about 8, but he pitched a fabulous game against my Yanks, making them look foolish and lost at the plate. So a rookie who is hot AND a good pitcher? Now you see why he is up here.
Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers
Ian is a hottie if I ever saw one. He also plays the game well. There were periods of time where Robinson Cano got on my nerves, and I wished that Ian Kinsler was the 2nd baseman for the Yankees. He is a hard-nosed ballplayer that any team would like to have. And he is adorable. Nice, clean cut handsome man. I love him.
Grady Sizemore of the Cleveland Indians
This guy is gorgeous. If you are a female who watches baseball, you must have a thing for Grady. You would have problems if you didn’t. Don’t be shy, just let it out! Everyone knows he is hot. I am a Grady Lady at heart. I also love the way Grady plays the game. He is a fabulous centerfielder who always makes unfathomable plays in the outfield. He is just amazing. He has all the tools to be a superstar, and a superstar he is. Grady is awesome!
Brian Roberts of the Baltimore Orioles
B-rob is an extreme cutie!!! He is down right adorable. I think his size makes him cuter. Brian is short, only about 5’9″. The fact that he is a little guy who is so good at baseball is so cute. I love the speed Brian brings into the game. His customary “dance” off the bases as he takes his lead is hilariously cute. He is a base-stealing wizard. His speed also helps him man the 2nd base spot, where he is pretty smooth with the glove. I love Brian Roberts.
Andre Ethier of the Los Angeles Dodgers
Andre. Andre Ethier. I bet this was a surprise, hahaha. I absolutely adore Andre. You all know about how my fellow blogger Cat got Andre to sign a shirt for me, which I treasure. But why did I want an Andre shirt in the first place? What made me, a Yankee fan till the end, like this little Dodger so much? Hm. I saw him once on MLB Network, and immediately fell in love with him. Then when I started my blog, I bumped into Cat. I loved her page because of all her photos. I saw Andre photos everyday. I saw his pregame rituals, he and his teammates, and his quirky habits in the outfield. I felt like I knew Andre, which made me love him more. I realized that he is more than a handsome face: he is a wonderful man. Andre is an extremely talented ballplayer, a man whose charm is captivating, and an even better person. That is why I love Andre Ethier. He won this #1 spot without a doubt. I hope for Andre to wear Yankee pinstripes one day, but then I feel bad about taking him away from Cat and the other Dodger fans who love him. It’s alright, though. I don’t mind admiring him from a distance.
I hope you all enjoyed this special cutie post. 🙂
You’ve all seen the heartthrobs of the AL East, now let’s do the rest of the AL.
