I wonder if he'll rip the catcher's arms out of their sockets if he loses... (somebody had to start the lame SW references...)

Wow, Chewy is a lefty. I'm surprised he hasn't been picked up by somebody yet. Lefty? Make that...wait for it...southpaw. har har

If there had to be a sport in Episode 1, George Lucas was a damn fool not to think of Chewy playing baseball instead of that little retard racing.

Dammit goddam, you beat me to the JD reference

Dammit goddam, you beat me to the JD reference You just missed your chance to start a feedback loop by saying "Goddammit, goddamn..." And I think you'd need one hell of a thick mitt if you were Chewie's catcher.

Looks like a good delivery. Wookie knows what he's doing on the mound.

Is he the wookie of the year?

Is he the wookie of the year? Maybe the funniest thing said on SpoFi this month. I salute you, sir! RT, I told my wife about this photo last night and couldn't stop talking about Chewie's mound form. Driving off the back leg, coming down over the top ... Christ, can the Jays sign the dude in the suit?

That has to be the ugliest Princess Leia I've seen in a long time.

You should see him bat. Always let the wookie walk.

posted by JJ at 11:13 AM on September 30

What do you do with a wookie with three balls? Walk him and pitch to the Tardarian.

The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant, next to the power of Chewie's fastball...

posted by MeatSaber at 12:06 PM on September 30

That's no fastball, that's a space station.

Boston ought to keep him in the pen.

wookie of year?!?!--who are you Elmer Fudd? Back when the Boston Sports Guy was just a dude with a Citypages account, a reader wrote to say he was calling Paul Pierce "Chewbacca" from now on, because he heard Bob Cousy say he was "definitely Wookie of the Year".

Yeah, he's got velocity, but his pickoff move is horrible. You can run on him all day, and the catcher can't do a thing about it, because the throws to second just hit him in the head. That's why he never made it out of Pawtucket.

posted by The_Black_Hand at 02:03 PM on September 30

Yeah, but he's got great speed on the basepaths....he made the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs.

posted by mbd1 at 02:21 PM on September 30

He'll hold together.

Didn't the Red Sox lose that game? Obviously Red Sox = Empire, Yankees = Heros! (LOL)
