The least marketable skill in America

    Hope I'm not the latest to pull a D_B.

    Anyway, this guy mimics batting stances. I can't decide whether it's cool or the most pathetic thing I've seen all year.

    Here's the Brew Crew version (there's a bunch more on the site):

    Naw, that's not the least marketable skill. As spnited could tell you, the least marketable skill is the guy who imitates Aaron Heileman holding a lead.

    Wait ... I thought doing comic impressions was a useful skill.

    So was I. When I first clicked this thread, I was going to suggest it go to the journalism board...

    Not for nothing, but Jeff Manto's stance was the exact duplicate of Brook's.

    Isn't that restraining order still in place? :D

    That's awesome. I used to do stuff like that in my backyard all the time when I was growing up. But I only had the big names -- Ripken, Griffey, Thomas, McGwire, Canseco, Murray, Gwynn, Tettleton, Fielder, Henderson, Gonzalez -- down pretty well.

    That Jeromy Burnitz stance was great.

    But which of the 10,000,000,000 Cal Ripken stances did you do?

    I did two of them because he alternated so much. My favorite was when he held the bat level. It was probably somewhere through '95 and '98. That was the height of my whiffle ball days.

    I still do a Jose Cruz stance at softball just for fun.

    I warm up with a Griffey stance sometimes, but I use my own stance for softball. That's not a time to screw around, Grimace.
