Today is Tuesday. "Tuesday" begins with a "T". "Trivia" also begins with a "T". It is an alliteration too good to pass up. Plus, Trivia is fun. So now, let's test your knowledge (or at least your ability to Google search).
Well shoot, today is not Tuesday... but oh well, you get the idea!
Last month I challenged you with this Birdo:
Several of you guessed correctly that the identity of this player is none other than...
Adam Wainwright after throwing a complete game against the Pirates in Game 5 of the 2013 NLDS!
Congrats to all that answered correctly!
Now for today's challenge...
Who is this?
- During his thirteen year career, this player has only had three seasons where he was worth under 3.0 fWAR.
- In 2015 he set an National League record in consecutive games reaching base to start a season with 45.
- This player has the arms of a Greek god.
