Separated at birth: David Wright and the Great Gazoo?
I don't mean any disrespect to David Wright - I understand he's wearing that new batting helmet to protect himself after a concussion - but gee, that helmet does make him look like the Great Gazoo from "The Flintstones."
Sorry, I couldn't resist!
Between the two Red Sox "dumb-dumbs," in Gazoospeak - Kevin Youkilis being Fred Flintstone and Dustin Pedroia as Barney Rubble - and Wright as Gazoo, we'll soon have enough baseball people to recast "The Flintstones! (Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon can make a cameo as Mr. Slate!)
Incidentally, Squawker Jon does not like "The Flintstones" - he thinks it's merely a cheap ripoff of "The Honeymooners."
Do you have any baseball/Flintstones suggestions? Leave us a comment!
