Charlie Sheen Talks Future Cy Young Winners
So when Jay Mohr, one of my all-time favorites, sat down with Charlie Sheen for his latest installment of "Mohr Stories", I was instantly riveted. Sure, I knew there would be crazy talk about Sheen and his antics over the last 18 months, but I also knew they'd talk baseball.
Because, well, both dudes are huge baseball fans.
But what I wasn't prepared for was who the now kinder, gentler Sheen predicts as future Cy Young Award winners.
Sure, the star of "Major League" could've gone with the obvious choices (Felix Hernandez, Justin Verlander or Stephen Strasburg), but, he went with a pair of interesting choices instead.
First was Miami Marlins righty Josh Johnson who, while struggling this season, Sheen calls the "most underrated and quietest Cy Young threat in baseball. Period. The end."
The other one, however, was a head scratcher.
"Another guy who is going to win a Cy Young is the kid from Cincy...Homer Bailey," the Cincinnati Reds fan declared. "Watch."
"I like Homer Bailey," Mohr added, "but I don't think you can win a Cy Young in that park. Too many longballs."
Johnson I get...dude, when healthy, can be a beast. But Bailey? I think I've gotta agree with Mohr on that one.
What do you think? Is Sheen spot on or is he as crazy as he once wanted you to believe?
Put your name on it!
