Baseball may be America’s Pastime (let’s ignore the overwhelming popularity of the NFL for the moment…), but the béisbol diamante is more of a bilingual workplace than a construcción jobsite.
So this verano, when you sneak off the jobsite to catch a 1:20 game at Wrigley, keep an eye out for the following players whose names will help you learn new vocabulario en Español.
Here is the official Top 10 List of Red Angle’s favorite MLB players:
DIEZ – Nelson Cruz :: TX
With Josh Hamilton in the lineup, Nelson doesn’t have much of a cross to bear….
NUEVE – Jesus Montero :: SEA
Jesus is just the latest Huntsman to emerge on the American pop culture radar, joining the Mitsubishi SUV and the new cinematic vehicle for Charlize Theron along with that girl from the vampire movies.
OCHO – Alex Ríos :: CWS
Again with the cars…. the Kia Río this time.
SIETE – Omar Infante :: MIA
Fairly straightforward Spanish Twin here.
SEIS – Martin Prado :: ATL
Martin Meadow in the meadow with the most famous Meadow… Meadow Soprano.
CINCO – José Reyes :: MIA
This José was a SS King, not much of one anymore. I hope he plays with Prince Fielder someday.
CUATRO – Miguel Cabrera :: DET
Michael Goatherd… very pretty name in translation.
TRES – Robinson Cano :: NYY
Cano means grey haired en Español, but he’ll probably opt for the shaved-head look.
DOS – Felix Pie :: ATL
Felix Foot, playing a game of inches.
UNO – Alcides Escobar :: KC
Are the Royals sweeping many series these days?
EXTRA – Carlos Delgado :: Hall of Fame…
Carl Thin is heading to the HOF with a resume that is anything but thin….
