Picture of the Day: Zack Greinke and some really tall guy

Dec 11, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez snapped this photo at Zack Greinke‘s introductory press conference today (Greinke is 6-foot-2, by the way):

    Greinke is a professional athlete who just inked a $147M contract — and he’s still not the most recognizable face in the photo.

      So true. Ned Colletti’s just overmatches everyone.

      Is Zack the guy in the blue suit?

      Just kidding…..no one named Zack has ever worn a suit.

      • pkers - Dec 11, 2012 at 7:18 PM

        Didn’t Zack wear a suit at some point in Saved By the Bell?

      • tfbuckfutter - Dec 12, 2012 at 7:21 AM

        Not that I recall.

        Always dress shirt and tie.

        At BEST maybe a blazer.

        I don’t know, does this count as a suit?

        Is that Vanilla Ice? lol

        Who photoshopped Deion Sanders to look like a white guy?

    it would be so sweet if they did these press conferences on the old set of the Magic Hour.

    Magic may have been the second most recognizable athlete of the 20th century after Muhammad Ali.

    • csndrew - Dec 11, 2012 at 5:02 PM

      I’d put Babe Ruth ahead of him. And Michael Jordan too.

      • Reflex - Dec 11, 2012 at 6:18 PM

        Just from basketball in the 20th century I’d argue Charles Barkley, Julious Erving and Wilt the Stilt are probably more recognizable to a ‘typical’ 20th century sports fan. Possibly Larry Bird too. Magic was great, but I think cases could be made for a lot of athletes as ‘more recognizable’ from that century.

        That said, I think Dennis Rodman may be the most ‘recognizable’ of all. Of course that has little to do with his considerable talent. ;)

        Reflex, this is baseball.

      • tomtravis76 - Dec 12, 2012 at 7:31 AM

        sorry man, but Magic and Bird are credited with saving pro basketball. Also Magic is known world wide not just for basketball but being one of the faces of AIDS.

    • cosanostra71 - Dec 11, 2012 at 11:10 PM

      as much as I love Magic a Lakers fan, it’s hard to put him ahead of Michael Jordan. If I remember correctly, at one point in the 1990s, Jordan was the second most recognizable figure (fictitious or non) after Mickey Mouse.

  4. koufaxmitzvah - Dec 11, 2012 at 4:57 PM

    To think, Magic never made close to the same amount of money the Dodgers players are making now. And, yes, I am including all proceeds from the Magic vs Bird and Magic vs Dr J hand helds and Apple IIe program as well as the Converse contract.

    Money doesn’t make the man. Only accomplishments.

    • koufaxmitzvah - Dec 11, 2012 at 4:59 PM

      Okay. And love.

      And dogs and pie and a Volcano. And my red thermos.

      That’s all I need.

      • cur68 - Dec 11, 2012 at 5:02 PM

        jeez. Have cake instead.

      • stex52 - Dec 11, 2012 at 5:20 PM

        No, I’ll go with a hot, steamy, yummy fruit pie.

        Unless you have cake. Then I’ll eat that.

      • ltzep75 - Dec 11, 2012 at 5:35 PM

        The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that’s all I need. … And this lamp

  5. clevelandschronic2 - Dec 11, 2012 at 4:58 PM

    Wasnt that that tall guy on south park.?? Lol great episode

  6. clevelandschronic2 - Dec 11, 2012 at 4:58 PM

    That the****^

  7. goawaydog - Dec 11, 2012 at 6:00 PM

    maybe I am dyslexic, I see Greinke standing next to some really short guy

  8. geoknows - Dec 11, 2012 at 6:16 PM

    Greinke’s not going to bargain with Adrian Gonzalez for #23?

  9. kelshannon19 - Dec 11, 2012 at 6:34 PM

    Puttin on some offseason pounds aren’t we, Zack?
