Mayberry Jr. asks for date with 'Pirates' mermaid

John Mayberry, Jr. of the Phillies wants a date... with a mermaid.

OK, so she isn't really a mermaid, but Antoinette Nikprelaj played one in the latest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, On Stranger Tides.

Mayberry's has solicited help from his agency, CAA, in landing a date with Nikprelaj by asking rival agency Innovative Artists to connect the two in a letter the New York Post reveals:
I imagine you’re familiar with CAA and some of our clients, as we work with Ryan Howard, Roy Halladay, Buster Posey and Andre Ethier among others.

I hate to even be sending you this e-mail, and I’m quite embarrassed to say the least, but we have a young client on the Philadelphia Phillies who asked us if we knew any agents at Innovative Artists and could connect him to Antoinette Nikprelaj.

“I know you’re not a dating or set-up service, but John Mayberry, Jr. (Phillies OF) would love to meet Antoinette or invite her to a baseball game sometime. Would this be possible?

Here’s a bio [ed.: Not included] of John to give you some more info on him (he’s a great guy, down-to-earth, humble, Stanford-educated, etc.) Thanks for considering this as you know how this business is and servicing clients.

Although Mayberry is a baseball player, he isn't enough of a household name yet, so it remains to be seen if Nikprelaj will meet Mayberry, or if she even knows about the request. Iin the middle of a breakout season, Mayberry is hitting .260/.318/.516 as a 27-year-old for the Phillies. He'll get a chance on a national stage to impress Nikprelaj, as Philadelphia will make the postseason and is a heavy favorite to make it to the World Series.

This is part of what's wrong with our world today. If you're Mayberry (or anybody), don't you just wish you could live your life without being under the microscope? Please, just report what's relevant to the sport, and leave the man to live his life in peace.

Pretty shoddy formatting.  Also, the subject matter would be considered lightweight even by social media standards but I'm certain that's readily apparent to just about anyone.
