Anthony Rizzo Flew in His Uniform, Came to the Park in his Uniform, Didn’t Pack a Change of Clothes

Anthony Rizzo is not just the Greatest Leadoff Hitter of All-Time, he is also the greatest troll of all-time.

And I mean that VERY affectionately, as how Rizzo chose to travel to today’s ridiculous one-gamer in Washington was just too perfect.

I am dying. Rizzo staying game-ready.

Here’s hoping he gets back on the team flight tonight, still in his gear – maybe a little dirt and grass here and there – and drenched in the Gatorade his teammates dumped on him after he went 5-5 with 4 homers.
