Pedro Cerrano = ????: If we had a right-handed power hitter, we wouldn’t be in last place. Probably.

Pedro Cerrano: “Jesus, I like him very much, but he no help with curveball.”
Eddie Harris: “You trying to say Jesus Christ can’t hit a curveball?

Finally, here are two more riveting comparisons that we couldn’t find photos for …

  1. Raymond Peterson says:

    Feliz could be Cerrano because curveballs give him fits. He just doesn’t hit for power like Cerrano.

  2. DG says:

    I’ve been telling my boys for a while that Zito is Ricky Vaughn from Major League 2. Think about it…

    Zito’s sold out and gone corporate. He’s lost that zen buddhist mojo that got him there. Wild Thing pulled the same move and also lost his stuff.

    Now Zito needs to get back to roots the way Wild Thing rediscovered the badass inside that made him such a fan favorite.

    They may not have the same type of stuff, but I think there’s a lot of similarities.

  3. Chris says:

    I don’t think Bonds and Dorn match up that well. Dorn reminds more of Klesko or Aurilia. Both are washed up, but still continue to play so they can cash in.

    The big difference between Bochy and Brown is that Brown was actually kinda cool. The only guy off the top of my head I can compare Bochy to is Felipe Alou. Both are so fast asleep in the dugout they forget what’s going on.

    Zito and Wild Thing comparison by DG was brilliant. Cerrano is very much like Feliz because the only pitch either of them can hit is a fastball.

    Now if only Molina made league minimum like Taylor…

  4. Say Hey says:

    Yeah, the Zito comparison is brilliant.

  5. Ty Keenan says:

    Tremendous post. That Zito comparison is fantastic in every way. Big fan of the Krukow one, too, if only because I can imagine him drinking in the booth.
