Dodgers’ ring ceremony options Bronson Arroyo praising, singing ‘Wonderwall’ to Walker Buehler
… Anyway, here is “Wonderwall.”
Baseball’s bizarre, man. Any approach you slice it, there’s at all times some type of hijinx occurring, someplace, indirectly.
Only a few days in the past, the Cubs turned their dugout into an IHOP, with Joc Pederson celebrating a house run with a waffle maker. Nicholas Castellanos received suspended for flexing. Noah Syndergaard cannot watch the Mets. Severely, bizarre.
So it is no shock that it did not take lengthy for baseball to, as soon as once more, get bizarre Friday. The Dodgers have been introduced with their World Collection rings earlier than their recreation vs. the Nationals, and former main league pitcher Bronson Arroyo was in digital attendance. Arroyo — who by no means pitched for the Dodgers, neither is he a California native — sang a rousing rendition of “Wonderwall” and delivered a reasonably lengthy and awkward speech to 1 Walker Buehler.
*Extraordinarily Dave Letterman voice.*
Women and gentleman, here is Bronson Arroyo!
Arroyo’s full speech to Buehler:
Walker Buehler — I knew there was one thing particular about you after I met you, man. You and Mike Leake are the one two guys to ever give me that feeling. You are humble, you are somewhat brash inside, and I knew you have been gonna have a superb massive league profession; 25 years previous, you received your self a World Collection. I needed that. Took me til I used to be 28 to win one along with your previous supervisor there, Dave Roberts, and he is a superb man. Be sure you give him some love.
Arroyo then begins strumming away on the Oasis hit “Wonderwall,” a lot to the delight of pending White Claw-drunk faculty college students across the nation ready for his or her subsequent karaoke binge.
Arroyo, the long-time MLB pitcher recognized for his hair and distinctive wind-ups, is a well known guitarist now, and he is truly fairly good, if his “Wonderwall” iteration is any indication.
We’ll want the total story on simply what was occurring right here and the connection between Buehler and Arroyo.
There are any variety of phrases that may encapsulate this prevalence, however we’re simply going to depart with this: What the hell?
