Serving as a Major League Baseball team’s first base coach is a pretty sweet gig. You have few responsibilities and you get to play with a stopwatch while chewing tobacco. Great, great work if you can get it.
There is very little you can do wrong in this role. And even if you do make a mistake — like dropping a shin guard or mishandling a foul ball — the stakes are usually pretty low.
Hell, you have to try pretty hard to draw any interest at all.
That being said, it was hard not to notice whatever San Francisco Giants’ Roberto Kelly did in the coaching box last night.
Yeah, I hope that was a voluntary movement and not a spasm. If not, he should probably consult a physician STAT.
