BP pics from Phebe

Blog reader Phebe sent over a couple of fantastic pictures last night -- click each one to enlarge!

He's got such a sweet smile.
So cute. :D

And the second one is when Yunel saw my "Te amo Yunel" sign during BP. I got the nod - he gives good nods!! :)
That's one of the best pics I've seen of Yunie in a long time. (Did you see the tattoo creeping out from under his left sleeve? I don't think I knew he had a tattoo there!) And check out Gregor on the left -- he's just adorable too.

Thanks again, Phebe!

I'm surprised we haven't had a facial hair compare and discuss on the new face do. I don't like beards so I do like this look better, but the beard on Mac's baby face somehow worked and looked cute on him.

Great pics, thanks for sharing Phebe. :)

And I love the big smile from Yunel. I'm so annoyed with people bashing his "attitude" on DOB's blog. Yunel is a sweetheart, you dummies! Leave him alone! :|

Amanda - Mac opting for the goatee isn't anything new. He does it at least twice a year for a little while, then he'll grow his beard back out when he gets tired of it, I guess. Who knows? I agree, I prefer him with the beard.

Great pic, Phebe.

First- Phebe, you're awesome!

Second (and Amanda's heard this before ;) )- I typically don't like beards (ahem Francoeur I'm talking to you!) but I HATE the goatee on Mac. He's a beard guy...it just looks so cute on him!! (and without it he looks 5) PLEASE MAC, GROW IT BACK!!! SOON

Oh- Yunie's got a tat? Awesome...someone's going to have to try to get a pic! I love him and that smile :)

Thanks, Phebe! Great shots!

I too prefer the beard on Mac. The goatee is just not the same. And Frenchy should avoid facial hair at all costs. Eww.

Amanda said...

Thats so funny, Leah. I have never noticed him going back and forth between beard and goatee. Or if I have noticed I forgot lol.

Leah said...

Lol, yes. Maybe his wife likes it? I don't know, lol.

And if I'm not mistaken, there was a spread of Yunel at his Miami residence in ChopTalk last year and you could see his tattoo pretty well in one of the pictures when he was in street clothes, I believe. I think it was on his family's story about defecting from Cuba and the story that mentioned he had gotten divorced, maybe? I can't remember what issue it is, though. Maybe last off season? I know I saw it somewhere other than in on-the-field pics, but can't remember exactly where.

Amanda said...

Hmm I subscribe to Chop Talk but I don't remember that, no surprise there. I can't really remember what was in the last issue. I know Jeff was on the cover but other than that... lol

CABravesFan said...

By the way- Someone seriously needs to buy Mac some better shades...I don't care if those are his "hitting glasses"- they're way ugly! (and I totally <3 the ones he wears during games!)

flbravesgirl said...

CA, you & I both know that although Baby is beyond adorable he doesn't have the best fashion sense. I have seen him wear some seriously awful sunglasses.

dzjscole said...

Hate the goatee--especially combined with the nearly-shaved head. Please bring back the beard. HMMM, maybe that should be my sign when I see him in DC next week???!!!

Great Pics Phebe! Thanks for sharing what has to be one of the best Yunel pics. And the nods are good, aren't they. :)

Alright, who has old copies of ChopTalk?? lol

Leah said...

I have old copies of ChopTalk, two and a half years worth, I would have to pull them out of my entertainment center, though, because I believe it was the off season before last ('07-'08). I'll look and see what I can find and get back to y'all. I'll have to take picture on my phone or with my camera though because I don't have a scanner. :(

Ha ha, moatsak, definitely make a sign about bringing back the beard! And maybe about the hair, too, although the buzzed hair I've gotten semi-used to.

Leah said...

Err, I mean, dzjscole, my bad. That's what happens when I try to multitask. :\

Leah said...

That didn't take long at all. I found the issue. Amanda, it's the April 2008 issue with Chipper and Mark Teixeira on the front cover. I took a picture of the main picture, but there's text covering half his tattoo so it's not that good and it's from my phone. And the picture that doesn't have anything covering it is really small and I couldn't get a good pic of it. Pic here.

Amanda said...

Ah I will have to dig that one out. I subscribed back when it was the big paper tabloid kinda looking format, and then they sent out the letters that they were going to stop printing Chop Talk and that was so sad! And then they came back with the greatly improved magazine format that they have now.

SUPER photos Phebe!
