Orlando Arcia sprawled on the ground represents how we all feel after a week of work
Any job is going to have its exhausting moments, even if it's just playing baseball.

If you ask me, Arcia looks like he could use a nice, relaxing day at the beach this holiday weekend. Plenty of other people will do that, so why not Arcia?
Let's at least make that possible for him.
