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.
