Todd Jones just wants to have fun - and disturb us in the process

From MLive:

About an hour into Wednesday night's rain delay, closer Todd Jones emerged from the Tigers' dugout, dressed as Magglio Ordonez, uniform and wig included.

Jones picked up a bat and strolled onto the tarp. Then, after mimicking Ordonez's pre-at-bat routine, he sent an imaginary pitch over the wall, jogging the bases in a similar style to Ordonez's trot after his game-winning home run during Game 4 of the 2006 ALCS.

Jones stuck one arm in the air as he ran to first and later slapped the hand of an imaginary third base coach -- all to the delight of several thousand drenched fans.

Here in Motown we call him the rollercoaster, but if he can do this and close out ballgames like early this morning, it's alright with me.

Loved it. About time they started providing some entertainment during rain delays. The slide into home was cool too.
