Yuni has more favorite things April 16, 2008

Here’s some more of Yuniesky Betancourt’s favorite things (according to the Safeco Field scoreboard’s “Beyond the Baselines,” a Marinerds post, and a cookbook press release):

Favorite food: Cuban food (makes sense)
Favorite ice cream flavor: strawberry (though some sources say chocolate)
Favorite snack: tres leches cake (here’s Emerill Lagasse’s recipe for it)
Favorite snack: spaghetti with ketchup (I couldn’t find Emerill’s recipe for this dish)
Favorite vacation spot: the Bahamas (when you’re from an island, you want to vacation on smaller islands)
Favorite road ballpark: Anaheim (also makes sense, given that the team doesn’t play much in southern states like Florida, and no one likes Tropicana Field)
Favorite Road City: Miami (um… the last time the Mariners never played in Miami was a month before Yuniesky joined the team)
Favorite actress: Cameron Diaz (Being John Malkovich Cameron Diaz or The Sweetest Thing Cameron Diaz?)

You can trust Yuni’s opinion at your peril, though a meal of pepperoni pizza with sides of spaghetti and tamales and tres leches cake and ice cream for dessert doesn’t sound too bad.
One friend said Yuni’s favorite snack is “Clubhouse Orange Pasta,” but Google says that’s Willie Bloomquist’s fav.
My sister’s decided that Mike Morse is her favorite Mariners, based solely on the fact that his favorite food to make is top ramen and his favorite actors are The Rock and Ludacris, both of whom are better known for a different craft.

according to the diamond vision last night, clubhouse orange pasta was yuni’s favorite snack, not willie’s. willie’s tidbit was his favorite coffee drink: pumpkin spice latte. so, unless safeco screwed up and show’s willie’s fav for yuni’s at bat, then those other blogs are wrong, my friend.

at least you can admit when willie plays well.

[…] this trade for unknowables Daniel Cortes and Derrick Saito, along with the recent departure of Ludacris-enthusiast Mike Morse,  is the true retribution for one bad play, and bountiful potential […]

It’s the best time to make some plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I
may I want to suggest you few attention-grabbing issues
or advice. Maybe you can write subsequent articles regarding this article.
I desire to read more things about it!
