The Redwood Forest wouldn't have a chance if El Oso Blanco resided in it much less a flimsy Louisville Slugger over his back. Evan Gattis is a tough hombre. All day strong.

In the immortalized words of Vin Scully: "VIVA PUIG!" The Cuban sensation has taken over the baseball world in his first 4 career games. Los Angeles can't get enough of Viva Puig so we figured a shirt was due. The 5-tool athlete can hit the ball out of the park in all directions, gun out base runners from the warning track, and his all-around hustle has revived a team.
He's the new Bo Jackson. Puig Knows.
Get the Viva Puig Shirt Here!

Courtesy of 680 The Fan's Rob Jenner comes this classic clip called "The Legend of El Oso Blanco." Evan Gattis has already become the man, the myth, and the legend with his 10 homers, beard, rawdogging it with no batting gloves approach to hitting and the way his teammates love him. The White Bear needed a great tribute and now he has one thanks to Jenner. Well done sir. Well done.
PS-I love the little dig they did on Yunel Escobar. Whatever happened to that frosted tip d bag?

I hope the Flyin' Hawaiian is okay after taking this blindsided high five from teammate Koji Uehara. I haven't seen that kind of surprise on a Hawaiian's face since Ben Affleck died in that awful Pearl Harbor movie. I'm kind of disappointed Koji didn't scream "BONSAI!" right before slapping Victorino. You gotta do it to keep up team morale right? It's the American way after all or something like that.
Fun fact: I had no idea Uehara was still in the league. He was one of my favorite Orioles a few years ago because he always seemed like a big team guy whether starting or coming out of the bullpen. But what makes him a legend in Baltimore is he got traded to the Rangers for Tommy Hunter and some 25-year-old slugger Chris Davis. Yes the same Chris Davis who leads the majors in home runs and extra base hits. And now Hunter is the best arm out of the bullpen for the O's. Not a bad trade at all for the Orioles. Laughs maniacally.

Seriously Michael Bourn. I don't think the Triple Crown winner needs any more help. Hey we all fuck up here and there. It's just part of the game. But this was almost up there with Jose Canseco taking a header for a homer in terms of fuck ups. Laugh all you want Bourn but coach Lou Brown is not going to put up with this shit much longer.

He may only be a rookie but there is little doubt El Oso Blanco is a living legend. At this rate I can't wait to see the 30 on 30 special on Evan Gattis. This is getting beyond a Hollywood script. It's almost unfathomable what Gattis has done in the first quarter season in an Atlanta Braves uniform when just 3 years ago he was out of baseball. Gattis was literally living in a van down by the river and now he is hitting Gattis Bombs in clutch situations in the Show.
Buy the original and still the best El Oso Blanco shirt here!
