Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler as Shirt Twins
By Ian Hunter
I'm not sure if you guys have noticed something kind of funny about the Blue Jays broadcasts on Rogers Sportsnet during the current road trip, but I have.
It appears as though Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler are either sharing the exact same wardrobe, or they're really really big fans of the silk button-up short sleeved shirts.
At first I thought their luggage might have gotten lost and they had to stock up on shirts in Baltimore at a nearby Target, but this pattern has continued on for the past seven games. Here's the proof below:
July 16th vs. Baltimore Orioles
July 17th vs. Baltimore Orioles
July 18th vs. Baltimore Orioles
July 19th vs. Kansas City Royals
July 20th vs. Kansas City Royals
July 21st vs. Kansas City Royals
July 22nd vs. Detroit Tigers
My personal favourite? The salmon coloured shirts Buck and Pat wore during the second game of the Orioles series. The pink really brings out the flesh tones in Buck's skin.
It's not my sense of style, but hey ... if it worked for Frank Costanza, it can certainly for Buck Martinez and Pat Tabler - for 10 straight games.
