Besides the fact that they’re natives of Latin America and play baseball and haven’t died ever, Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre are basically carbon copies of mid-century comedy duo Burns and Allen. What the footage here — from, like, five minutes ago — what the footage here reveals is another installment in their ongoing series of amusing scenarios. In this particular case, Beltre (first) feigns as though he intends to catch Jon Singleton’s pop-up but then (second) doesn’t catch that same pop-up. The premise is simple; the effect, nevertheless, profound. Andrus and Beltre for president? No one hasn’t not said it. No one hasn’t ever not said it real hard.
