We’ve got some more Players Weekend heat for you, this time from the east coast, Padres @ Marlins. If you missed our “On-Field” from Astros/Angels, check it out here.
Notice the Players Weekend stirrups? Those are just for Dee, as we’ve never seen a stirrup made by Stance. The socks underneath are from Trusox, and they feature gripping pads on the inside and outside of the sock, which is favored by Dee Gordon, Francisco Lindor, and other players for its no-slip performance. Get Trusox here.
Because of bad luck injuries, we’ve been deprived of a full Giancarlo Stanton season, until 2017. With 51(!) bombs before September 1, Stanton is showing why those pythons are worth $325 million. For Players Weekend, he wore the entire Miami skyline on his arm, to scale. You might ask how they fit an entire city on his arm, but frankly I’m surprised they didn’t put Fort Lauderdale on there, too. Guy lifts.
This is a custom sleeve from Custom Sports Sleeves, but you can shop a lot of cool designs here. Also notice Stanton’s flared handle, which is what you see from a lot of guys who have injured their hamate bone on a swing as Stanton has. He broke the bone back in 2015 when he was leading the league in RBI, and has since switched to a flared handle which reduces the risk of that injury. This handle was made famous by guys like Ted Williams, Willie Stargell and Roberto Clemente. Marucci sells the RH6 with the flared handle here.
Yangervis Pituki, uh, Solarte, really loves the Kyrie 1s converted by Custom Cleats, Inc.
He’s been wearing them for multiple seasons now and you’ve gotta believe they feel pretty good.
Jabari Blash put “Big Daddy” on the back of his shirt which makes sense when you’re 6’5/235. Just makes me miss Big Papi, though. That Players Weekend jersey would have been money.
Old Hickory seems like they did one paint job for all their guys, because we saw Andrelton Simmons and Josh Reddick with the same look.
Jarlin “the Marlin” Garcia has been the Marlins best reliever this year, and his nickname is money.
