Jackie Bradley Jr. is in The Best Shape of His Life

This one in video form. It comes at the 2:45 mark of this 3:00 video over at Boston.com. Best part: totally unprompted. Just blurts it out when talking about stealing bases.

But watch the whole thing because at the beginning he talks about how great it was that he failed at the major league level last year. Really: “it’s great that I failed.” Which, while it’s clear what he’s actually getting at, is a surprisingly aggressive way to couch the whole “learn from adversity” concept.

    Yes, BSOHL, but what is his EXACT weight?

      I have no idea what that means, and I’m glad.

    He comes across as a decent guy and is likely to be a pretty good player. I wonder how long it will take me to stop thinking “Jackpot Wad” every time I see his name, though. I bet a pretty long time.

      I keep thinking of Jackie Chilles.

    The “BSOHL” tag lines in the blogosphere(s) have become beyond played.

    It’s reached depths of “That so (insert year here)”, “That’s what she said” territory etc..

    Time to find a new (not narrative) angle HBT crew.

    Now, back to Carlos Martinez’s twitter feed.

      When no one is interested in you, and your job is to write about other people 24/7, sometimes you just wanna make the story about yourself for a change. And being a snarky, sarcastic cynic is the easiest way to do that.

        mets–this story is not about you.

    Chaco- your not the only one. That’s the first thing that pops into my head when I see his name! Lmao

    He better be in the BSOHL….

    He’s replacing a guy who is supposedly worth $20,000,000 a year to play 80 games.

    Where’s our BSOHL roster? Haven’t seen that thing in forever. We’ve gotta be around a full 25 man roster at this point.

    BSOHL might have been amusing once. Craig seems like that annoying guy who tells the same joke over and over because someone laughed once
