I think Junior Lake likes to just wave off the potential idiot fan who might interfere with him in LF.

Who could he be waving off? There are no foul line fielders. So let’s do a bit of speculation here…
Top Ten List:
Junior Lake Wave-Off Edition
10. Those overzealous ballboys
You never know when a ball boy will assume a ball is going foul and just go after it, thus messing up a potentially routine play. Good on Junior for being proactive.
9. Troublemaker fans
Remember when those idiot fans beat up the poor Royals coach all those years ago? Except this is JUNIOR LAKE. He’s 6’4″, 200-something pounds of man. Don’t fuck with Junior Lake even when he’s slumping.
8. All the single ladies
Junior Lake is on a Yasiel Puig-like trajectory right now, except he’s cooled off a bit sooner. But he’s still pretty dreamy, so he’s got to make sure the ladies stay back and let him do his job. They can mob him after the game. #swoon
7. Hot dog and beer vendors
Not now, man…I’m working! Save me some for after the game, though!
6. Tony Campana
No Tony…we don’t miss you. Sorry dude.
5. Trade rumors
Trade Junior Lake? Now? Are you crazy?
Junior doesn’t believe in regression.
3. He was just saying “hi” to God
They’re very religious on the island.
Maybe Junior thought he was still in center field and saw Luis out of the corner of his eye?
1. The century of bad luck
Go away, bad luck. It’s our time.
