SF Giants jumbotron divorcee says he’s ‘most eligible bachelor’

A man whose pal celebrated his divorce with a jumbotron message at a San Francisco Giants game has dubbed himself “the most eligible bachelor in McCovey Cove now.”

“It’s only a matter of time until I’m running the bases again,” Max Blue quipped to SFGate Friday.

Blue and his friend, Ryan Faraola, who paid for the message, were both shocked when it went viral last week.

“Happy divorce Max. Back in the game!” The sign on the jumbotron read Wednesday.

Blue is an arts writer and a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute. A reporter for SFGate said she knew Blue’s soon to be ex-wife and that the ex was “cool” with publishing an interview with Max.

Quarterback Daniel Jones #8 of the New York Giants and the offense huddle against the Baltimore Ravens.

The New York Giants pulled the trigger on a blue-chip offensive tackle prospect with the No. 4 overall selection in last year’s NFL Draft. Yes, Andrew Thomas’ on-field production was up-and-down as a rookie, but the outlook from within the organization remains sky-high on the 22-year-old.

With that said, when you have the opportunity to potentially snag what ex-NFL head coach John Mora (and so many others) dubbed a “generational talent,” you don’t concern yourself with the drawbacks of double-dipping at the same position two years in a row — especially when protecting Daniel Jones is the No. 1 priority in East Rutherford.
