The coolest baseball poster you’ll see today

Jan 3, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

I tweeted about this last week when I first saw it, but now I gotta post about it because, thanks to the girlfriend who got it for me as a surprise post-Christmas gift, I now have one of these hanging on the wall of the lair here in my fortified compound:

source:

Isn’t that the coolest?  It’s 12″x12″ and, having had it for all of ten minutes, it has already became my favorite bit of baseball art I own.

They’re made by a guy in Louisville named Jeremy Reiss. If you want one, you can order it here. I believe he’s working on a pitching one now, so you can bet I’ll be snagging one of those when they’re done.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go stare at this thing all day.

    Wait…you have a girlfriend? My wife won’t let ME have a girlfriend….

      /clap /clap /clap

      well done sir!

      The cost/reward ratio goes up exponentially with every girlfriend past the first. Trust me on this.

    Thats awesome!

    What, no Can of Corn in the outfield?

    • goawaydog - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:35 AM

      can of corn was a huge swing and miss, should be there.

    • Panda Claus - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:44 AM

      Baltimore Chop seems to be missing as well.

      • Panda Claus - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:45 AM

        Umm, never mind. I saw it the third time looking.

    • hep3 - Jan 3, 2013 at 12:39 PM

      Nothing about triples, either.

    • johnchesterny - Jan 3, 2013 at 1:05 PM

      Can o’ Corn is a bad thing from the standpoint of a hitter. That’s probably why it’s not included here.

      • vincentmoonoir - Jan 3, 2013 at 1:43 PM

        Plus it is offensive to the corn harvest.

    • groundruledoublebourbon - Jan 3, 2013 at 5:56 PM

      Also missing “ground ball with eyes”

      • groundruledoublebourbon - Jan 3, 2013 at 5:57 PM

        *said in drunk Crash Davis voice*

    Important question as to what’s better: Wounded Duck, or Dying Quail?

    • El Bravo - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:18 AM

      I prefer the duck, despite its sometimes gamey-ness, it is quite a succulent meat. Quail is just a weak ass Cornish hen. Oh baseball? Shit, I dunno…

      • nategearhart - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:23 AM

        Mmmmm…duck and pie.

    • hep3 - Jan 3, 2013 at 12:43 PM

      When I hear Wounded Duck, I think more of football and the passing (in a football sense, not life) of Washington Redskin Quarterback, Billy Kilmer. Great leader, but not a great passer.

  5. albertmn - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:11 AM

    I hadn’t heard a couple of the terms before. And, I guess I have really only heard Wounded Duck in reference to poor football passes before. But, I’m sure a few of the terms may be more regional.

  6. Chris Fiorentino - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:12 AM

    Coined by local Phillies announcer Tom McCarthy…no “OPPO BOPPO”?

    ps I’m glad it’s not on there, because I think that term sucks.

    • phisticuffs - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:35 AM

      Or even worse, Sarge’s “Cadillac Time”

  7. Ralph - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:13 AM

    Chip Caray hates this poster; there’s no “fisted”.

    • number42is1 - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:34 AM

      so what you really mean is that Craig hates it?

    • Chip Caray's Eyebrows - Jan 3, 2013 at 2:27 PM

      At least “belt” made it on there. Another of his favorites.

      “Swung on, belted!”

  8. bankboy2012 - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:14 AM

    Craig likes it so much because the screamer looks suspiciously like the Bat Signal.

  9. Francisco (FC) - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:26 AM

    Kay Adams was impatient. They needed to wrap the next HBT video sometime in the next couple of hours, but Craig, onscreen, was just sitting in his chair, laid back with the bathrobe loosely tied together. He seemed to be in a trance! It was that damnable poster sucking his attention again! An assistant came up to her to adjust her makeup (for the third time)

    “The man hasn’t come back to Earth yet?”, asked the assistant while applying some blush.

    “No!” answered an exasperated Kay. “And I’m telling you, I’m NOT going to go to his lair and clean up all the drool this time! I’m NOT his girlfriend!”

    Craig was oblivious to all of this, even though his 71″ LED screen was on, showing Adams with a large frown stitched to her face. He was too busy staring at his magnificent baseball poster on the side wall…

    He inched closer to it and spoke with reverence: “Poster, Poster on the wall, who’s the greatest of them all…”

    I hope he does an updated version next year with only words taken from Chipper Jones twitter account.

  11. Stiller43 - Jan 3, 2013 at 11:40 AM

    What is it?

  12. stex52 - Jan 3, 2013 at 12:46 PM

    Glad to see “Texas Leaguer.” I thought that one was dropping out of the lexicon. A blast from my youth.

  13. chacochicken - Jan 3, 2013 at 1:33 PM

    They are missing Chipper’s face yelling (ala screaming brave) yickety mammos.

  14. cur68 - Jan 3, 2013 at 1:36 PM

    Hmmmm…its very good. Very, very good. But its missing something. Its missing the most oft used phrase in the AL West: “PADMY”.

    I hope he does a baserunning one. I look forward to seeing “TOOTBLAN” enshrined in Official Print.

    • stex52 - Jan 3, 2013 at 2:07 PM

      PADMY may be a bit one-player specific. In ten years they will be saying “Michael who?”. But I’m ready for TOOTBLAN.

  15. dondada10 - Jan 3, 2013 at 3:05 PM

    What the hell is a blue darter?

  16. indaburg - Jan 3, 2013 at 4:07 PM

    That poster is cool. Not as cool as the girlfriend who got it for you, but very cool nevertheless. I look forward to the pitching version.

  17. dlmayday - Jan 3, 2013 at 5:41 PM

    Nice but missing “it’s outa here” and “touch em all”

  18. mookie311 - Jan 3, 2013 at 7:27 PM

    um…that’s ugly.

  19. louhudson23 - Jan 4, 2013 at 4:38 AM

    Pitchers and catchers report….(just practicing….)
