VIDEO: Andy Cohen Gives His Giancarlo Stanton-to-the-Cardinals Pitch

Celebrities often politely flee TMZ’s cameras en route to or from their cars and Andy Cohen begins the below video in the same manner, throwing out a polite “Hey, guys. What’s up?”

But it’s not long before the St. Louis native’s eyes light up with an eager smile, coming the exact moment he’s asked to give his pitch for Giancarlo Stanton to join the Cardinals:

“We are your team! We are waiting for you!” the late night host says, pitching his hometown to the most famous non-free agent/free agent in MLB history. “I have my Instagram. I’m waiting to follow you, dude.

“We are a baseball town, man! We love you. Be a Cardinal, man. Your blood is red. You’re already there.”

While it may or may not seal the deal for Stanton to call The Lou his next baseball home, it’s always nice hearing and seeing our town’s famous brethren singing it’s praises. Like the Cardinals, Andy Cohen can now say he’s done all he could to land the NL MVP…You’re up next, Jon Hamm, Jenna Fischer and John Goodman.

Stay tuned to 101ESPN and for all your silly St. Louis celebrity sports news and analysis.
