Buck Showalter pranks Darren O’Day

Jun 29, 2012, 1:19 PM EDT

Buck Showalter may be the uncoolest guy on the planet. Witness.  But this, done under the auspices of MLB’s FanCave was pretty damn good.

I almost feel sorry to see O’Day’s head hanging like that at the end.  Only wish they left him on the hook longer. Like, until just before game time, and then have Dan Duquette get involved and stuff.

    Thought he was going to pee his pants. Good stuff.

    Have Duquette come in and say, ‘Sorry you’ve traded to the padres’ right ater that… no, that wouldn’t be funny, that just be mean

    Showalter’s laugh makes me feel better about my own.

    That was pretty hilarious since you could tell he was worried for a minute there.

    Haha. That was great! Buck can act a bit or two.

      If this stint with the O’s doesn’t work out perhaps Buck can take one of he opening on SNL.

    At least O’Day wasn’t demonstrating the advantages of cotton uniforms.

    Buck caught himself a couple times there. He almost dropped a few F bombs in there. He must curse like a sailor! I love my manager!

    Okay, that’s fun and all… but can you guys please get back to winning games and avoid getting swept by the freaking Indians?
