Baseball Player Gets Referred To As "Minor League Guy" During Televised Game

Baseball Player Gets Referred To As "Minor League Guy" During Televised Game

During Saturday's exhibition game against the Mets, St. Louis brought in a pinch runner to hopefully bring home the leading run in the ninth inning. That player, sporting a very unattractive #91, left the people in the production truck scrambling to figure out who the hell that individual was. With a limited amount of time on their hands, they decided to just state the obvious on their national telecast and refer to homie as "Minor League Guy." Well played?

With a number that high, you would think that the guy would be destined for a long stay in the minors... with the occasional September call-up, of course. Unfortunately, that #91 is the Cardinals' second-best prospect, Oscar Taveras. Last year, the 19-year-old outfielder had an impressive .386 with 8 home runs and 62 RBIs at Single-A Quad Cities. With those type of numbers, it would be hard to not take note of a guy like that. But hey, let's cut these guys some slack, it's Spring Training for everybody.
