Utility man Ryan Theriot has the potential to become the go-to guy for National League beat writers.
During a “Not For Women Only” panel discussion, former Cubs pitcher Mike Bielecki asked several players to invent a baseball catch phrase for Viagra. Theriot’s ad campaign: “Viagra — I always play hard.”
Theriot, the former high school prom king, didn’t hesitate when asked about his first makeout session (“Sixth grade … Jenny … back of the skating rink.”), or his imaginary porn name (the radio hosts emceeing the session said to combine your pet’s name with your street name; Theriot’s was, “Gauge Classique”), or showing his rear when a 73-year-old woman from Lafayette, Ind., requested that the panel (Bielecki, Theriot, Marshall, Cotts and reliever Scott Eyre) show her their “assets.”
Man I hope he starts this year.
