Mickey Mantle = J.D. Martinez?

Yes my friends, I'm comparing the great Mickey Mantel to J.D. Martinez, an outfielder for the Astros who hasn't played a full season in the majors.  Why?  Because like the Mick, who was the first player to hit a home run in the Astrodome, J.D. Martinez hit the first home run in Marlins Park.  In a season of rebuilding you look for bright spots where you can find him.

It also fun to compare yourself to a great ballplayer.  You can even use your bad habits to make them sound better.  Like if you're accused of being a horrible parent, just say, "yep, I'm just like Mickey Mantle."  Then quickly high-five someone. 

Me, I use to drink as much as Mickey Mantle.  So yeah, T. Sean = Mickey Mantle.
