Jed Lowrie's recent wrist injury will force the Red Sox shortstop to undergo surgery, placing Lowrie on the disabled list for what appears to be a substantial length of the season.
To the common observer, this disappearance from the Red Sox lineup is no cause for bewilderment.
While perusing the Red Sox website this Tuesday afternoon, however, the cover image promoting 2009 All Star Game voting featured an image including shortstop Jed Lowrie which raised some eyebrows as to where Lowrie's time will actually be spent during this disabled list stint.
The image left little doubt as to whether a Batman threequel will be coming soon...
Notice the Joker-esque look of Jed Lowrie in this 2009 All Star Game promotion from RedSox.com. The resemblance is uncanny, and the long awaited news as to whether a third Batman movie in the latest series is on its way.
RedSox.com photo zoomed in on The Joker, as played by "injured" Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie.
I submit the above cartoon image of The Joker as certifiable evidence that Jed Lowrie is, in fact, the next rendition of the infamous Batman arch nemesis villain. This image, in concert with the prior slides picture of Lowrie from Redsox.com, when considered alongside Lowrie's mysterious "wrist injury" (read: filming break), is indisputable. Lowrie is The Joker.
