The name "Michael LaPayower" may not ring a bell, but his past Internet reputation might. Back in 2010, the big New York Yankees fan won his 15 minutes of Internet fame, being mocked on sites like Deadspin for his pinstriped-parody of a Lady Gaga song.
Now the man with the @bigyankeesfan Twitter handle is back and trying to get in on the next go-round of the MLB Fan Cave with a baseball-themed version of LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It." If nothing else, the man does own a wide spectrum of MLB gear.

If you think you can best LaPayower — or BLS pal Lindsay Guentzel, for that matter— you've got until Jan. 31 to film your own plea for a spot in the Fan Cave.

The Yankees aren’t likely to sign Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima by Friday’s 4pm CDT deadline, one person with knowledge of the situation told Marc Carig of the Star Ledger. The Yankees see Nakajima as a bench player and intend to pay him like a backup, Carig reports on Twitter.
