He’s the “Special Advisor to the CEO” Lol. The titles these ex-players get always slay me. What topics could Barry possibly advise Larry Baer on? Bike riding? How to act like a colossal dick to beat writers?
I’m not gonna lie, it was pretty cool watching the vids of him jack bombs out of the cage on Saturday. His last season was 2007, he was 42 and he blasted 28 bombs (along with 132 walks). He’s 52 now and if Baer wants to pay him to hang out and flip balls over the wall who am I to say there’s anything wrong with that?
I never thought Barry wanted to be a hitting coach and wasn’t surprised at all when he ran out of gas last year and the Marlins fired him. Being a hitting coach is more for the grinders of the game. Barry likes to get his relax on and *special advising some rich dude* seems about his speed.
I’m sure he’ll have some nice pointers for the hitters. Just don’t call him a *Hitting Coach.*
And build that damn statue already. I’ve never been to a statue unveiling but I would go to that one…..
