MLB World Series: Phil Coke Does Hilarious Miguel Cabrera Impression
The Detroit Tigers and San Francisco Giants are in the midst of the 2012 World Series and a few lesser known ball players are being brought into the limelight, as MLB media coverage is going strong in October. For those who are unfamiliar with the Tiger’s bullpen, let me introduce you to pitcher Phil Coke. Coke is a relief pitcher who has also been fulfilling closing duties for the Tigers as of late. In a recent interview with Detroit Tigers color commentators, Coke gave a beauty of a soundbite and impression of triple crown winning teammate, Miguel Cabrera. Check out the video below.
“What I do? Homerun?”
“You walk me you wuss, you walk me sissy.”
So it has been said that Cabrera has an uncanny ability to remember pitches and at-bats in depth with hundreds of pitchers in the past; but for some reason, Cabrera doesn’t remember Coke getting the best of him. Is it because he doesn’t “remember horse crap pitchers?”
Not only am I impressed with the legend that Coke indeed struck out Cabrera on a 3-2 breaking ball, I am also impressed with his impersonation of a big man from Valenzuela.
Coke played for the New York Yankees in 2008 and 2009, and was part of their World Series-winning squad in 2009.
With Jose Valverde struggling as the Tigers closer, expect to see more of Phil Coke over the next few nights. Not only does Coke do impressions well, he can hurl the ball well too.
