Pittsburgh Pirates Photo Day Fun


Pittsburgh Pirates photo day is a tradition that cant be missed. The Pirates do an exceptional job at putting together some very awkard photos that are used promotionally throughout the year.  And the really strange thing is the photos never die thanks to the internet.

We got a good laugh looking at some of this years photos, but also the ones from the past few years.

Everyone knows Pirates closer, Jason Grilli.

Gaby Sanchez might have taken the best picture all day.  Guess it feels good to lose a bunch of weight before the camera comes out.  Skinny prick.

Starling Marte somehow pulls off his photo, but that ear looks really odd.   I mean, my ears are odd looking too, but Marte has some sort of aerodynamic condition happening.
