FORGET MACHADO SIGNING! FORGET HARPER SIGNING!! INJECT A NAME CHANGE (kinda) FOR OUR FRESHLY RE-SIGNED SETUP GUY RIGHT INTO MY VEINS!!!

Okay, maybe this isn’t actually big news, but it is hilarious.

Why would someone do this? That’s like a guy named ‘John’ for absolutely no reason changing the way he’s going to spell it to ‘Jon’… insanity!!

Right now my theory is that Zach Britton learned recently about a famous Zach/Zack that he admired spelled it different than he did, so he changed in his footsteps.

Like, maybe he was a big “Saved by the Bell” guy and recently learned that Zack Morris spelled it with a K., OR maybe he learned that the “Black Power Ranger” was Zack with a K, and who wouldn’t want to be cool like a Power Ranger**??

…ORRRRRRR, he just thought it’d be cooler for the fans to spell his name with “K” signs as he strikes people out…

(yes, I realize Britton isn’t ever getting 8 strikeouts in a game… but you get the idea)

Whatever the reason, this “news” is hilarious.

Less than a week til pitchers and catchers report!! LET’S GOOOOO!!!

 

UPDATE @ 12:04pm EST:

Turns out Britton is blaming his birth certificate…? What?!

* = ARE WE BROTHERS?!?!
** = If the Black Power Ranger reason is the truth, I NEED his music as he runs from the bullpen to be the Power Ranger Theme Song… Talk about getting the Bronx fired up!!
