Bobby Abreu as "El Comedulce" (or the candy eater for our non-Spanish speaking friends).
She said always remember never to trust me
She said that the first night that she met me
She said "there's gonna be a time when I'm gonna have to go with whoever's gonna get me the highest."

For the record Dustin Pedroia's nick name is NOT caballito or little pony. Whenever I watch Sox games on TBS the announcers call him that for some messed up reason.
