Blue Jays Fans, Take A Good Look At Your Classy New Infielder

Today, the Blue Jays traded away starting pitcher Shawn Marcum for the Brewers' top minor league prospect, second baseman Brett Lawrie. Brett is 20 years old and is now a major league baseball player. Brett should figure out Facebook's privacy settings.

Lawrie, a native of Langley, British Columbia, became the highest-drafted Canadian position player in history in 2008, when the Brewers picked him 16th overall in the draft. He played for the Double-A Huntsville Stars last season and finished the year with a .285 batting average, 8 homeruns and 63 RBIs in 135 games.


He also got his first taste of the big leagues today, when the Milwaukee-based blog posted a handful of embarrassing pictures from his Facebook page. The more embarrassing possibility, of course, is that these pictures do not embarrass him. Anyway, it's difficult to pick the highlight. Taking a cue from another Brett we know, he's posted a selfie — of his abs. There's a bicep tattoo of expletive-free Eminem lyrics, which aren't really Eminem lyrics at all. And then there's this gem, complete with a duct-taped-forty-hands-forty (by the way, unless you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, how is this game preferable to just drinking the forties like a normally dexterous human? Evolution happened for a reason, people!) and suggestive hand placement. We present to you the pride of Canada baseball.
