A few years ago Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier blocked me on Twitter because I said that he wasn’t necessarily a household name among baseball fans. Which, at the time, he was not. Before he blocked me, though, he scrolled through my timeline and found a photo of me and my cats, which he proceeded to mock, because it’s apparently ridiculous for someone to have pet cats.

Just asking you keep that in mind when you hear what he’s planning to do today to deal with the bad weather in New York for this afternoon’s tilt against the Yankees:

If it was me I’d consider a base layer or two and maybe some hand warmers, but you do you, Kevin. Unlike some folks, I don’t judge.

Go greased lighting.
