Chooch Hits the Big Time on Cover of Sports Illustrated. Carlos Ruiz has had the best seat in baseball all season, catching the Legion of Arms and helping guide the team to the league’s best record. And now, our favorite Panamanian is getting some national love on the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated (a great story from Gary Smith that will be online tomorrow).
Technically, as Philly native and Sports Illustrated writer @BryanAGraham (a great Twitter follow as well) points out, it’s Ruiz’s third SI cover, as he appeared twice during the 2008 World Series run.
The20’s @meechone couldn’t contain his excitement, tweeting in all caps:
