Pittsburgh Pirates Photo Caption Contest

We’re not sure why, but we are quickly becoming fans of Joe Beimel. Perhaps it’s how he says he matured Bradenton. Perhaps it’s his bravado when talking about his pickoff move. Perhaps it’s the forearm tats?  Duquense?  St. Mary’s native– home of Straub beer?  Not sure…just are.

Drop your best captions in the comments below and our judges will sort out the rest. If you are named the winner we will let you know and get your copy of Pro Scouting Pittsburgh Pirates Edition to you.

Good luck.

      off topic here, but if Beimel moonlighted for the Penguins, would he be a Hockey Loogy?

    Beimel takes his pepper games WAY too seriously.

    I suppose after being kicked out the band Creed trying out for the Pirates’ pitching staff isn’t the worst gig in the world.

  • jmarter

    No, Beimel can’t bunt, but he’s a master at balancing the ball on the bat.

    I really need to make this team so I can afford tats for my left arm.

  • Rob S

    Looks like some wise-ass glued a ball to my bat!

    Slug bunting? I thought he said “Thugs turn to bunt.”

  • Brian

    Searage told me if I learn to bunt properly he’d buy me a big tat for my left arm, too!! Woohoo!!!
