Pot Shot

April 5, 2011

In today’s notes, Henry Schulman discusses who’ll be the odd man out when Brian Wilson returns (possibly as early as Wednesday). Sounds like Dan Runzler is the most likely option, though Schulman says Guillermo Mota is also on the bubble.

That’s sort of interesting, but I was much more taken by the photo accompanying the story:

Two things:

1. It could be an optical illusion, but it appears Wilson’s beard is jutting forward, as though it, too, would like to travel through the air at high velocity.

2. Where is that bullpen mound, and why was it built in the middle of a marijuana patch?

NOTE: After writing that, I noticed a commenter at had the same question. So I’m not crazy; or we both are.
