Francisco Lindor is warming up in his Space Jam jersey today: pic.twitter.com/DU0dRbsXtL— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) September 6, 2016
Forget all those WARS and on-base percentiles or whatever you nerds use, this is the only measurement you need to find your 2016 MVP: Toon Squad jerseys above replacement (TSJAR). Lindor leads all players with 1.0. Everyone else has 0.0. Say it with me: M. V. P.
If you did not already know about Lindor’s ties to the greatest sports movie of our generation, one of his walk-up songs is the theme to Space Jam. The other is Jump by Kriss Kross, which is equally as amazing.
The jersey itself was created by a fan (@Viper13OO7 on Twitter), who actually got to meet Lindor yesterday.
