Book cover of the day: baseball stars cooking

Apr 27, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

Contrary to numerous reports, the title of the book is not "To Serve Man[ny]"

This cookbook — edited by Jeff Loria’s wife — can’t be new because usually these kinds of things are accompanied by a bunch of PR requests to review it and promote it and stuff.  Or maybe it is and I just wasn’t copied on any of the usual spam. I have no idea. All I know for sure is that (a) I’m probably not going to buy it because I don’t cook and really don’t care to learn how; and (b) the cover is absolutely fantastic:

    Let me guess, Mauer slips taking that dinner out of the oven, sprains his knee and in his pain grabs the hot stove and burns his hand and is out months.

    Also why does A-Rod look like he belongs on some trashy romance novel.

      A-Rod *IS* a trashy romance novel.

    This looks like one of the “woman porn” joke calendars that has the men doing all sorts of household chores.

    It’s so cheesy, it hurts.

    Is this author related to Jeff Loria, Owner of the Marlins?

      It’s his wife. She writes cookbooks to earn a little spending money because the per diem he allows her has been offset by the rising price of gasoline for her Hummer.

    So much for baseball and its homophobia.

    Five guys with big smiles and A-Rod looking like he wants you to get the hell out of his kitchen.

    What could A-Rod be cooking that is so damn serious?

      Kale chips.

    This book was publicized on the Feesh’s web site some weeks back, complete with an interview with Mizzuz Scrooge. I do cook – a lot (just made myself a few skewers of speidies for lunch, in fact, and have squid stuffed with gingered shrimp and scallops under way for dinner) and am really interested to see what kinds of recipes baseball stars use to try to cover up the latest generation of performance enhancing drugs in their urine. I can tell you this much: you can eat all the barbecued quail you want, but Viagra remains detectable.

    Look a bit closer…

    It appears that A-Rod is LITERALLY…umm…”busting nuts.”

    You can’t make this stuff up, folks.

    I wonder if there’s a good Cheese”pie” recipe in that book??

    I actually used the Joe Mauer recipe (it was in the Star Tribune the other day). Really good. And you don’t cook Craig? Kind of sad, really. Man cannot live on frozen pizza’s alone, you know.

    • aceshigh11 - Apr 27, 2011 at 6:30 PM

      Craig is “married with children.”

      I doubt he’s sweating it, unless he literally is married to Peg Bundy.

        Yeah, Mrs. C. is a great cook. And I do enough simple things — pasta, salads, etc., — to where I could survive without resorting to fast food and stuff if I had to. But I don’t consider that really cooking.
