Hot Dish for July

In honor of the All Star baseball game earlier this week, I am saluting the boys of summer -- professional baseball players -- in this month's Hot Dish.

While researching all the sexy men of baseball (and believe me, there are quite a few sexy players!!!), I stumbled across this photo and thought it would be perfect for the Hot Dish. Ladies, this is Gabe Kapler.

Gabe has played professional baseball for almost a decade. But I'm not going to list all of baseball stats here. That's not what this blog is about.

Instead, let's discuss the picture.

Personally, I think it is the perfect picture of a hero in a romance novel. Yes, he is handsome, but look closer. The muscles I see tell me he can keep me safe in the cradle of his arms. The squareness of his jaw tells me he is a determined man, never stopping until he gets what he wants. His eyes tell me he is sensitive and longs to be loved by the right woman. And his hands ... do you see how BIG his hands are? *blinking innocently*

So tell me ladies, what do you see in this picture of Gabe that would make him the inspiration for a hero we would all love?

    Those muscles and that devil may care look in his eyes would make him the perfect hero.
    Thank you for warming my day up here in OZ

    Have Fun

  2. Ooooohhhhhh.....

    Wait, what was the question?

  3. ooo, i've always had a thing for nice muscular arms. nice for being wrapped up in :)

  4. Wow, check out those muscles! I am a little distracted...oh yeah the muscles bunching up in his arms. I am looking right at the hand wrapped around that bat and I am thinking "Man, I wouldn't want to mess with him!". He looks very hands-on, capable and strong. Perfect traits for a protector or a hero in a romantic suspense.

  5. "Blinking innocently" or not, let's have a show of hands.

  6. I am all about that tattoo he has! Not even sure what it is without looking too closely but wow... those arms!

  7. "Well hello, Gorgeous! I never could learn to hold a bat properly. Could you help me?" said The Old Cougar! ;)

    Thanks for sharing the yummy photo.

  9. Buffie,

    I drooled over Gabe every time he came to bat when he played with my beloved Red Sox, he is astounding. Thanks for this!

  10. Hhhmmm-the abs definitely. Must stop staring and get back to work!

    great choice as always Buffie! :)

  11. Whew. Makes me want to head to the ballpark! Great choice, Buffie!

  12. Hey everyone! Sorry I didn't get around to responding yesterday -- it was a mandatory 12 hour day at the office, so when I got home I just collapsed!
