Getting Paul DeJong more attention - A Hunt and Peck

This is the dumbest thing I have ever written.

MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Milwaukee Brewers Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports

Since it seems to be Paul DeJong week here at Viva El Birdos, here is another post featuring the Cardinals shortstop. On Tuesday Tyler wrote about Paul DeJong’s solid career thus far. Since his debut in 2017, DeJong has been among the league’s top shortstops. Earlier today, Ben Godar wrote a lovely post about DeJong and theorized why he might not be getting the recognition he has earned. Perhaps he just does not have enough... flash?

Well, I have come up with a plan to change this. Godar’s post was titled “Paul DeJong isn’t selling jeans here” and that is currently true.

What if it were not, though?

If Paul DeJong started selling jeans — and let’s not kid ourselves, they would be Wranglers — he would definitely get some attention. To further prove my theory, I have made some mock-ups

That would get your attention, right?
