Yankees backup catcher Francisco Cervelli and Mets All-Star third baseman David Wright have one thing in common. And it’s not their bat.
It’s their ridiculously oversized helmets.
After Cervelli’s second concussion in four months (third of his life), he’ll wear a larger, more protective helmet for his dome. Here’s the comparison (via Star Ledger).
When I saw this picture, this post on my buddy’s blog came to mind. It’s hilarious.
UPDATE: Ben Shpigel of the new York Times says Cervelli’s got a new nickname. It’s “Gazoo,” which is named after the Great Gazoo. See video here.
