DIONER NAVARRO RUMORS

Dioner Navarro’s inside-the-park-homer attempt ends how you’d expect

Dioner Navarro, the Blue Jays catcher who moonlights as Bartolo Colon’s body double, came dangerously close to an inside-the-park home run in today’s White Sox-Jays contest. Your browser does not support iframes. This perfect storm of fat-guy-going-for-extra-bases developed as Navarro lifted a deep fly ball to ChiSox left fielder Dayan Viciedo, a guy who reminds me of myself...

Dioner Navarro Tries For Inside-The-Park Homer, Fails Miserably (Video)

The Toronto Blue Jays are no stranger to the home run ball, as they lead the the majors with 104 round trippers.

Such was the case on Thursday, when Toronto Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro attempted to leg out an inside-the-park home run after a […] The post Dioner Navarro tries to turn double...

WATCH: The chillest MLB fan of all-time

This is awesome. During Tuesday night’s Blue Jays-Red Sox game, Dioner Navarro hit a ground rule double to left field at Fenway Park. This Red Sox fan caught the ball without even getting up and barey moving his hands, and immediately (and rather smoothly, I might add) handed the ball to his female companion. Man…that’s one way to get brownie points.

Navarro stamps HR into van window

Chicago Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro figured out an easy way to make a delivery through the post office at Wrigley Field on Friday afternoon.

Navarro Blast Propels Cubs to Victory over Giants

Dioner Navarro blasted a three-run home run to cap a four-run 1st inning, and Jeff Samardzija and six relievers combined to throw a six hitter, as the Cubs edged the San Francisco Giants 4-3 in the Cubs 2013 Cactus League home opener before a sparse crowd (7,784) this afternoon at cool & blustery Dwight Patterson Field at HoHoKam Park in Mesa, AZ.

Six of nine lives lived by Dioner Navarro

Mediocre catchers play forever. If you can squat behind the plate and block a few balls in the dirt and not totally embarrass yourself with your arm, somebody in Major League Baseball will employ you. Hitting is optional. Thus, catchers will bounce from organization to organization and play over a dozen seasons and like cats, live out nine lives as a baseball player. Dioner Navarro...
