In the 6th inning of yesterday’s game, with the Rays trailing 6-0, Kelly Shoppach tried his best Bo Jackson impersonation. There was only one problem: Shoppach is not Bo and the bat laughed…

Hey Shoppy…Everybody knows, if you are going to get macho with a wood bat, you have to go with the grain, not against it. The good news is, you can go on blaming your .195 batting average on the bat. Yep, it’s the bat’s fault.

    Dave and Andy were hillarious yesterday when he did that!!They were talking about how he's struggling and they say there you that sums it up for kelly's struggles he tried to break his bat and missed his knee and got his thigh!

    Fatso is so weak he can't break a maple bat...Aybar does with a weak pop fly...How to we get stuck with these over the hill washed up players...Didn't Clev get Talbot...thats a hell of a deal...for them!

    Shoppy was a complete dud of a signing. $2.2mil per year, gets hurt immediately, comes back and then can't hit his (albeit pudgy) weight. Awesome little league passed ball yesterday too. He should never, ever, be in the lineup again unless Jaso has had both arms severed in a freak accident. And even then I might take Jaso and his stumps over Shoppy.

    Epic fail Kelly. Epic fail.
