Miles Mikolas, Noted Lizard Eater, Signs With Cardinals

Tasty stuff on the hot stove today, folks: The Cardinals have signed right-handed pitcher Miles Mikolas to a two-year deal. You may know his name from very brief stints with the Padres and Rangers from 2012 through 2014 (unlikely), or from his quite good performance in Japan over the past several years. But you should know his name from this 2011 video in which he eats a lizard by licking it, dousing it in Mountain Dew, shoving it in his mouth and taking several bites, and then washing the whole thing down with the aforementioned Mountain Dew.

If that’s not ready-made advertising for Mountain Dew, nothing is.
