What Better Way To Celebrate The 2010 All-Star Game Than The Advent Of Frankenstein Mickey Mouse

For $24.99, one can purchase a 7.5" collectible Mickey Mouse from the depths of hell; with all that stitching on the face, all he needs is bolts coming out of his temples to make this complete. All the teams' figures are up at mlb.com:

Each Mickey on Parade comes in all of your favorite Major League Baseball Teams. Mickey stands 7.5" tall and is hand painted in official team colors, logos and mascots.

This unique collectible is 100% poly-resin and is a great item for any Baseball Fan! Collect all 36 Mickey's from MLB.com!

7.5' version can be found in Southern California in such places as Los Angeles, Hollywood, Irvine, Orange, Tustin, Rancho, Cucamonga [sic] and more.

That's right, there is indeed upside to this design disaster. It appears that all 30 of the original 7.5-foot statues are located somewhere in California--even the even more horrifically-designed Giants Mickey statue. Anyone have an extra can of blue paint lying around? I smell a midnight roadtrip! Who can find the Giants statue first?

I didn't know Rancho had seceded from Cucamonga.

Jason said...

Cucamonga actually kicked Rancho out. Too much crime coming from that side of town.

J. Steve said...

I hope SOSG will let us know if there are any actual sightings of these 7.5' monstrosities!

MR. F said...

Happy 4/20 everybody.

Josh S. said...

That really is a an atrocity. Action Figure Manny is coming to kill it with his bat.

Didn't know where else to post. Gotta love the rumor mill

Josh S. said...

From HLACK's link:
...my source tells me that it's a "semi-big" name, though not a "huge" name.

So, it's not Jerrod Saltalamacchia then.

MR. F said...

National League pitcher with a semi-big name that's not from NY.

I hope it's not a Dodger. If it's a Dodger, I hope it's Russ Ortiz.

Fred's Brim said...

What is that along the bottom of the VaGiants Mickey? Is that supposed to be a ball splashing down into McCovey Cove? Or has it burst into flames? The Dodger Mickey has palm trees. I guess San Francisco doesn't have any real landmarks that people might naturally associate with the city...

Fred's Brim said...

I am guessing Zambrano, roid-rages and all

MR. F said...

Zambrano seems like a big name. What's a semi-big name?

Steve Sax said...

Seriously, those two updates are ridiculous. It narrows it down to 15 teams.

If not Russ Ortiz, can it be Tim Lincecum?

MR. F said...

Tim Lincecum is a big name methinks.

Dusty Baker said...

That Jints statuette is one of the most disgusting creations I've ever seen. You need to add a disclaimer to the site and make people click through an age and heart condition agreement. My day is worse for having seen this putrid creation.

Steve Sax said...

"Tim" isn't that big, however.

I'd be cool with Matt Cain.

Josh S. said...

Dusty: Sadly, I have to say, the Dodgers one is more hideous. They took a classy logo and color scheme, chewed them up, swallowed them, and then barfed them all over the statuette.

If you discount the ugliness of the Giants' colors, the actual layout of that statuette isn't as bad.

MR. F said...

I didn't think it was humanly possible to discount the ugliness of the Giants' colors.

Paul said...

They are all horrible. Mickey shit everywhere I turn.

What is up with the 20 questions game on the suspended player???

Mr. Customer said...

Who is this alleged source, and why are they releasing information one bite at a time?

Josh S. said...

The source can't be Sandoval. He has no concept of one bite at a time.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

I dunno, it still could the panda. The size of the bite was not specified.

Mr. Customer said...

Per John Heyman's tweet, it's Volquez.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Edison Volquez?

Mr. Customer said...

No "h", sorry Heyman.

MR. F said...

Meh. Not a Dodger.

MR. F said...

So. Is Edinson Volquez a semi-big name?

Mr. Customer said...

Bigger than my name, anyway.

Josh S. said...

He's on the 60-day DL. Whoop de doo.

Dusty Baker said...

If Edison Volquez is a "semi-big" name then I'm Sandy fucking Koufax.

Dusty Baker said...

"Edinson"

I wonder if the (sparse) CIN crowd will still boo Manny?

MR. F said...

Somebody tweeted:
"Apparently, Edinson Volquez can serve his 50-game susp. while on DL. So it may cost him only 50 games pay, and the #Reds nothing."

Fred's Brim said...

Getting suspended is a good way to keep Dusty (he of toothpickery fame, not of SOSG boozing and ranting fame) from overusing your arm

Mr. Customer said...

If they wanted to stop guys from juiicing, they'd make the teams keep them on the 25 man

J. Steve said...

Do other suspensions not count when on the DL?

Mr. Customer said...

I recall when Gagne was DLed and then suspended for jawing at the ump a few years back, they made him serve it when he was activated

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

I was hoping it would be Zito or even Johnathan Sanchez. Kind of disappointed.
