Jamie Moyer: Rod Barajas Makes Me Throw Up in My Mouth a Little Bit
PHILADELPHIA (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) The Philadelphia Phillies offense returned over the weekend after an embarrassing loss Friday night in the opening game of a three game series with the New York Mets.
Former Phillie, catcher Rod Barajas was at the center of the Mets’ offense in Friday’s 9-1 shellacking of Kyle Kendrick, and again, Sunday evening when he took forty-seven year old Jamie Moyer deep. But the Phillies exploded for nine runs in the fourth inning en route to an 11-5 victory.
After the game, Jamie Moyer didn’t pull any punches about his feelings for his former teammate.
“When Rod would step out of the shower, I’d thank my maker I take a drink now and then,” said Moyer. “Because that dude is one disgusting human being. From the matte hair on his nipples to his acne covered, sagging ass, it’s inevitable that your stomach acid will begin to churn. I’d often throw up in my mouth just at the sight of him. To compound things, the dirty bastard couldn’t buy a hit when he played for us. He plays for the Mets and he’s freekin’ Johnny Bench.”
Barajas, the hulking backstop for the Mets, has hit six homers against his former teammates with stops in Toronto and now New York. But its his disgusting habits and hygiene that have players talking.
“Call it my ‘little advantage,’” said Barajas. “I like to keep up appearances. And my appearance is to induce vomiting. Preferably projectile vomiting. I’m sorry my teammates have to endure it, it’s really meant to throw off my opponents. From farting while in a squatting position to licking myself clean, I am all about grossing people out.”
“Barajas?” said Mets Manager Jerry Manuel. “He’s the only guy I know who fans will greet only if they’re wearing surgical gloves and a mask.”
