My favorite comedian to listen to is Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan). Going camping for the last week got me thinking about his funny camping jokes. Look, the guy is obviously not an outdoors person. Just look at how pale he is. He referrers to the term “happy camper” and how sarcastically we use it. Do we ever use it in a positive way?
“He is NOT a happy camper”
Why not just call him a camper?
“The happiest guy is the guy LEAVING the campsite. He gets to go take a shower…”
I have to agree. The single greatest moment of my whole vacation was riding home thinking about taking a warm shower. But of course my whole family tries to take a shower at once and guess who gets the cold stick? If you haven’t ever listened to Jim Gaffigen then I encourage you to do so. He is even mostly clean. I’ll link at the bottom of the page to his camping jokes.
The Cardinals have been suspiciously hush-hush on their top hitting prospect this year, especially when he hurt his ankle. In fact he didn’t play for 15 games and the Cardinals didn’t even put him on the DL until after. The facts? He’s doing what Oscar Taveras does.
He is still recovering from his ankle injury, taking every 3rd or 4th day off. But he’s hitting .309 with 24 RBI’s and 4 HRs in 39 games. Not exactly crushing but not anything that concerns me or the organization. The quietness around him is mainly due to the lack of any kind of opportunity barring injury. Carlos Beltran is crushing and is a lock for the All-Star game and we all know what Matt Holliday can do.
With Will Myers being called up by the Rays I could see some interest being turned to Taveras. But don’t worry, he’s doing fine and is continuing to hit down in the minors.
With Carlos Beltran hitting like he is now, it’s not like people are rioting on the internet to see him.
That poses a complicated question this off-season when Beltran’s contract is up that I don’t even want to think about.
