Roto-World has a great story about ten buddies who parlayed pictures of the “Hammer” and his ex-wife engaging in sexual activities into signed baseballs by the entire Boston Red Sox bullpen.
“One of them gets the idea that the “moneyshot” picture should be shown to the players in the Red Sox bullpen. So he folds the picture and flicks it over the railing so that it lands in the steps of the bullpen. And that is when the party really started.Papelbon comes out of the dugout during the game holding the picture in his hand with a bemused face looking for the guy who threw the picture. The whole section starts buzzing with excitement and Papelbon and the “Hammer’s” friend who threw the picture start talking to each other. I cannot hear what was said, but during the next half-inning break, Papelbon emerges. The section goes nuts again and this time Papelbon signals to the “Hammer” to get ready to catch a pitch, and he throws a baseball to the “Hammer”. It was signed by the entire Red Sox bullpen, and they wrote “Thanks for the bullpen pics”.
This is why the Sox have the best bullpen in baseball, literally and figuratively. They are regular guys who love to look at a little snatch every once and a while.
