Us, regular petrolheads, we think that we’re the only ones to discuss comparisons. We often feel that the wealthy car buyers out there don’t have the same conversations when they showcase their autos. Well, you’d be surprised how far things go, at least concerning Major League Baseball stars.
Our endless automotive journeys takes us to a rather newly discovered path today. No, we’re not referring to the Baseball arena, we’ve been here before. We’re hinting at something that relates both celebrity lifestyle and car shopping. These two somehow merge through this little game two MLB stars are playing against each other as we speak. You see, Juan Uribe is currently playing for the New York Mets, after previously playing for the Colorado Rockies, the Chicago White Sox, the San Francisco Giants, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Atlanta Braves.

On the other hand, his fellow MLB player Hanley Ramirez is currently a baseball left fielder for the Boston Red Sox. They are not direct competitors, considering they are part of a team, but you may say there’s the occasional teasing going on. We’ve just discovered an interesting argument the two are having concerning what’s the best daily driver.

Excuse our Spanish, but we think Uribe is shouting out at Ramirez, telling him that there’s no better car out there than the Mercedes Sprinter he recently got customized at the Miami-based Auto Firm shop. In other words, it turns out loaded celebrities do fight on similar topics when it comes to their cars, only that instead of comparing Fiat 500s with Prii (no pun intended) they compare hundred-thousand-dollar Vans with supercars.

First world problems is what you’re probably thinking now, and you’d be right. But wait, there’s more. You see, not only is Uribe bragging, but he’s not even honest. We’ve met with both players’ car collection before, and if we mistaken, the New York Mets infielder also owns a Ferrari 458 Spider and a custom-built Hummer H1. Turns out the Mercedes Sprinter van is not enough, is it?
