Looking for a guy for your softball team? Well, look no more

This cold, dreary weather makes it hard to believe that we're just a handful of months away from summer. I think I speak for all of us when I say that barbecues, beach volleyball and just not freezing in general can't come soon enough.

One of the key factors in an enjoyable summer is playing on a winning softball team. To achieve this goal, it's necessary to take things way too seriously.

To wit: this extremely bold Craigslist ad:

"Im a 26 yo male looking for a competive weeknight mens softball team to play on. Im a very good all around player, have all 5 tools. Defensively I normally play SS or OF, offensively I normally bat 1 or 2, but can bat in the middle of the lineup, its just I prefer to go 4-4 with 4 singles than risk popping up trying to hit HRs, but I can hit HRs over 300'+ fences.

Jeter is probably the most comparable MLB player to my softball game, Im a great baserunner, great baseball IQ, can do a little bit of everything batting, and a very good defender (although jeter has no range to his left).
This guy sounds like a real treat. The kind of guy who most certainly would NOT get mad when the first baseman fails to pick his low throw out of the dirt.
