Yu Darvish in a Speedo And Other Unfortunate Photos of Rangers Rookies Being Hazed
Rookie first baseman/team nurse Mike Olt
After more or less single-handedly propelling the Rangers past the Angels last night with two home runs and six RBIs, thus securing a playoff berth, it would take something extraordinary Mike Napoli to fall from a Rangers fan's good graces. But dear Lord, Napoli came close.
Not long after his triumphant performance, Napoli took to Twitter.
Everyone ready for some rookie dress up pics?!!!!

Seemingly innocuous, but what followed was nearly two dozen photos such as the one above. Veteran-on-rookie shenanigans used to take place in the privacy of the team's clubhouse but now, thanks to the magic of Twitter, they can be, um, enjoyed by fans everywhere.
There are more after the jump, but be forewarned: You should only click if you want to see Yu Darvish in a Speedo.
