Carroll Keeping His Wide Eyes Fixed On Adrian Gonzalez

MLB.com (as part of a Corona Extras promotion) asked a bunch of baseball players who has "the sweetest swing in baseball," and Dodger Jamey Carroll said that he enjoys watching Adrian Gonzalez, former Padre turned Red Sock, swing the bat.

The video of Carroll stating this opinion is here, but since MLB.com won't let me embed their videos, I'll pull a Deadspin and have to illustrate it as best I can below:

In all seriousness, the video is worth watching for two reasons: (1) the shot of Carroll is such a closeup, it's unnerving; (2) Carroll's 100% serious tone is so clinical and stoic, it's almost stalker-esque. Eek. I'd check the locks on my door if I were Gonzalez.

Anyone else weirded out by the new Ackbar in the Star Tours commercial? He seems...off.

I confess that I haven't seen it. My TV consumption is Vin-centric.

I could go for some fried mon calamari right about now.

Wait what?

The Padres brought up Rizzo! He doesn't give you much of a strike zone.
