I was taken aback the other night when Wil Nieves stepped to the plate. I forgot he was on the Phillies. In fact, I was more surprised to learn that he was a Phillie than I was when I read Zoo With Roy this morning and learned that Nieves is also on Tinder*– the site for casual encounters. Sex.

Twittererererer (and sports commentator?) Elika Sadeghi last night tweeted a screenshot of one of her matches– Wil, 36, who is “just looking for friends and [to] have a good time.”

Now, besides the obvious chuckle that comes from a professional baseball player using a picture of himself and his baby daughter on a site for people who want to, in ZWR’s words, “boink,” there are two other notable takeaways here:

1) Check the timestamp. According to Sadeghi, who is operating on Pacific Time, Nieves was active two hours ago from 1:03 a.m. on Tuesday night-Wednesday morning. Presumably, two hours means somewhere between two-three hours, which means that Nieves was active sometime before 11:03 p.m. PST on Tuesday night. The Phillies game, which started at 7:10 and went for three hours and 36 minutes, ended at approximately 10:46 p.m. Which means that Nieves was likely online dating from the Phillies’ clubhouse at Dodger Stadium, presumably in the company of naked men. I find this delightful.

2) Puerto Rican marriage records aren’t exactly the best, but as of last July, Nieves was married (to a former model).

*Which is totally now in my history and could cause real problems in my life. Thanks, Wil Nieves.

    Because absolutely no one would fake a profile of an MLB player.

    Nah Kyle, if Mrs. CB sees it just tell her how you called the Meth Lab and record it for it.

    Mrs. CB: Again, Kyle!? You pig.

    Kyle: Are you talking about that one time? That was Grindr! Totally different.

    He’s an MLB player in a different city every 3 days and he can’t find a casual encounter? It creeps me out that on a site where one is looking for sex, the only face you can see on his profile is that of his infant daughter.

    Or, someone got this, apparently commercial, photo, and is pretending to be a not so recognizable MLB player to get chicks, kind of like the guy who was pretending to be various Steeler backup QB’s a few years back.

      What’s wrong with pretending to be an NFL quarterback?
