We were debating going with the more straightforward headline "Here's a Shirtless Photo of Leonys Martin," but we decided something a bit more artful would scare off fewer people.
Make no mistake: That is about a shirtless Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin, but it has a backstory. Via a tipster to Deadspin:
So we've all heard of Alex Rodriguez's story hitting on the models before the game. Well leonys is a little lazier than that. He has a few baseballs signed with his number and before each game he just throws it to a couple attractive females and one of my friends was the recipient and ended up texting him and he sent this picture to her.
You'd think with his $15.5 million contract, he could hire a professional photographer.
