Fields looks like a turtle trying to cover 3rd.

I started :rolling: when I saw this post.

See the resemblance?

But then it got me thinking: What animal would various Sox players be?

Paulie has been compared to a three-toed sloth on the basepaths.

Right now he's Pepe La Pew:

BA's defense has been described as like that of a gazelle:

His critics might maintain that he's a dik dik, though:

Opponents probably think AJ is as annoying as a horsefly.
