I think the only player on the likely 25 man that wasn't there was Coghlan. Wonder if he's upset that his unexpectedly productive year was rewarded with a spot on the bench. I remember him grumbling a little bit at the end of the season

Damn, that is just an absurd amount of really, really good players. I wasn't sure who they'd pick to anchor since there are so many stars to choose from.

That's interesting. My internet cut out a little in the middle there, so I missed a few. As David, alluded to, I'm going to read into that like it means something.

Wait, so Heyward and Dempster took turns reading mean tweets from Card fans?
Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

Dempster read mean tweets, Hayward read fictional responses supposedly from Heyward. Very funny.

Observations:

1) Vogelbach has some major sweaty armpits. Certain Dri, bro.

2) Travis Wood looks like the maniac he assuredly is. And why is he holding his beer like that?

3) Montero looks slimmer, too. And his teeth look amazingly bright. I love that man.

4) David Ross is grabbing Rizzo's tit (boob if it is on filter).

5) Kris Bryant isn't actually there. It's just a FatHead on the bar wall.

6) Hat tip to the Tito's vodka. Easily the best vodka.

7) Heyward is a badass.

8) Somebody please tell Scwarber to shave that [expletive] off his chin.

I'm glad you guys can tell them apart, because I counted no fewer than 3 Jon Lesters in that photo

I don't even see him.

EDIT: Oh [expletive], he cut his hair. I see him now. I thought that was John Lester, until I spotted John Lester, so... I'm kinda with Derwood on this one.

Is that Grimm to the left of Ross in that picture? Outside of the comic that's the only face I don't recognize for sure.

No they're not.....shaved head Travis Wood looks stunningly like Lester in that shot. I did the same thing and didn't realize who it was until weis' post.
I like beer.
