This video is going viral right now. It’s from a game in Chicago apparently in April. The guy taking the faceful of sunflower seeds is Sox 1st Base Coach Alex Ochoa. The phony tough guy in the catcher’s gear adding insult to injury with the “Bring in on” gesture is Kelly Shoppach. But the question remains, who was the triggerman who threw the seeds in his face? I’ve broken down this thing like it was the Zapruder Film, blew it up, examined every frame and I still can’t be sure. But I’m going with the consensus opinion that the Lone Gunman is Jon Lester. The only reason I’m not 100% positive is that it’s the only time all year he’s thrown something that didn’t get hit 400 feet.
And if it is Lester that means one of the few remaining guys on the roster who was even remotely likable is also a complete dick. The good news is the Sox just Tweeted that commemorative bricks are now 25% off!
PS – I can’t wait to see the text that Adrien Gonzalez sends about this incident
PPS – I think Johnny Pesky died of disgust.
