The Yankees Drafted a Dude Who Looks Remarkably Similar to Kenny Powers


This is Sean Carley. He sports a mullet and goatee on the mound. It means the West Virginia righty happens to look juuuuuuuuust a little bit like Kenny Powers — a fictional pitcher of HBO’s Eastbound & Down fame. Anyways, the Yankees selected him Saturday with the 422nd pick of the 2014 baseball draft on Saturday.

Carley got in on the joke himself, tweeting this recently:

Everybody has their own opinions (and favorite quotes) from Eastbound. Lets agree that Danny McBride’s pitching motion might have been the worst in fictional baseball history.
