Casey "The Gamer" Blake

98

A Wall Street Journal feel-good on Casey Blake's clubhouse unification powers. (un)intentionally hilarious lines: [On Blake's nicknames] "Mr. Blake's Cleveland teammates dubbed him 'the Chin' for his chiseled, Jay Leno-like jawline. His fellow Dodgers call him 'the Gamer,' a moniker he brought on himself in an interview earlier this year while discussing playing with a bad hamstring." [Blake on using Spanish to mock English speaking teammates] "'I'll joke around and say 'Hey, speak English,' says Mr. Blake, adding that American players should learn to speak more Spanish, too." [Wichita State coach Gene Stephenson on Blake] 'He was not particularly fast and not particularly strong, but really, really played the game unselfishly,' says Mr. Stephenson. 'Frankly, that's become rarer and rarer.'" [Twins "spokesperson" Mike Herman on letting Blake go] "'When he took off the next year we were all kind of like, 'Oops!'" In all seriousness, what a guy.
