PBN Around the Horn: Five MLB Mascots I Could Beat in a Fight



Welcome to the PBN Around the Horn. Here you’ll find news and notes from across Major League Baseball, your Pittsburgh Pirates, and around the Sports Now network.

There comes a time in a young man’s life when he must test himself; in the wild, it’s a young lion challenging an old lion; you also have the old gunslinger having one last draw. For me, my test is concocting fight scenarios with MLB mascots. Now, of course, I will only pick the ones where I can win, and naturally, I have found at least five I’m confident victory can be achieved.

  1. Phillie Phanatic (Philadelphia)- He looks like he couldn’t handle someone with a wrestling background (Thanks Middle School.)
  2. Orbit (Houston)- Ummm… just look up a picture of him; it looks as if a baby could wipe the floor with him.
  3. Lou Seal (San Fransisco)- I mean, come on, he’s a seal with limited mobility (just bob and weave BAYBAY!)
  4. The Swinging Friar (San Diego)- He kind of looks like he’s had one too many adult beverages, one swing should do it.
  5. Raymond (Tampa Bay)- I’ve never known a tough guy named Raymond; also, take the same advice for number two and get back to me.
