Checked my DVR of last night’s postgame show this morning to find this gem involving JJ Putz “congratulating” Omir Santos on his monster grand slam. How’s that taste, Omir? Good, good, good!
But that wasn’t this week’s only team practical joke. Way back on June 30 2007, I captured the first case of “bubble gum cup head” in the dugout: David Wright getting Ramon Castro good. Since then, Ramon has taken up the cause more than once. His latest victim? Our beloved Johan Santana. One of the few laughs during that game, with Ollie pitching a clunker to the Nats. My fave part is when Johan nestles down between Ollie and Tatis, his arms draped over their legs, his cup hovering uninhibited between them.
