Texas Rangers Outfielder Leonys Martin Has an Odd Seduction Technique

We were debating going with the more straightforward headline "Here's a Shirtless Photo of Leonys Martin," but we decided something a bit more artful would scare off fewer people.

Make no mistake: That is about a shirtless Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin, but it has a backstory. Via a tipster to Deadspin:

So we've all heard of Alex Rodriguez's story hitting on the models before the game. Well leonys is a little lazier than that. He has a few baseballs signed with his number and before each game he just throws it to a couple attractive females and one of my friends was the recipient and ended up texting him and he sent this picture to her.

You'd think with his $15.5 million contract, he could hire a professional photographer.

I think the more important question is who took the photo???

You know why he does it this way?


Because it works.

In Cuba, when a man exposes his flat screen cables it means the mating ritual is underway.

Not bad, pretty clever. I may try this with Wendy Davis.

I say, give the guy a break. He's 26, but considering his jock upbringing in culturally less-than-sophisticated Cuba, being accompanied by minders on strictly programmed trips abroad for the Castro regime which didn't allow for socialization. Then he's been in minor-league play since his defection in 2011, and let's face it, minor-league towns on minor-league pay aren't gateways to the smooth and silky. Now bear in mind that he's almost surely not fluent in English. And to his credit, he apparently doesn't frequent the bottle-service bars with the hangers-on.

So he's just tossing it out there to see if anyone catches, and sure enough, someone did.

As long as he keeps playing good defense and hitting doubles I could care less.

I'm disappointed in this photo.

He could also get some abs. I've seen better bodies on the online dating sites.

@JustSaying

The only flat screens in Cuba and up as rafts to escape the socialist paradise.

His English is actually pretty damn good.

Yes, and since you're obviously the type who peruses pointedly on multiple dating sites, comparing tipsily with girlfriends over wine, with multiple logins for all the many sites you haunt, you would know. OTOH, you don't know why you're still a single mom.

He's a pro baseball player, gifted and practiced with hand-eye coordination that's much faster than any Photoshopped-photo-emailing swain you've ever encountered, yet you're critiquing lack of navel-gazing, self-absorbed, Vogue-defined abs. 


And use your turn signals, will ya? Not everybody who honks at you is coming on to you.

I stand informed (hedged my bet with "almost surely"). OTOH, I also speak pretty damn good English, but ... well, let's leave the bad news to the Astros and my bartender, shall we?

@ScottsMerkin Nope. Not a pig. I'm actually all for ogling. I ogle chicks too. Downtrodden housewives have the option as well....I wouldn't know though, I'm not a housewife, just downtrodden.  :)
