SCENE: Monday. Home clubhouse at Petco Park. EDUARDO NUNEZ enters, wearing an overly stuffed backpack.
EDUARDO NUNEZ [to everyone]: Hola everybody!
No one acknowledges Nunez. He shrugs it off and begins looking around the clubhouse for his locker. He can't find it.
NUNEZ: Hey, where's my locker?
No one responds. Nunez turns around in circles looking at everyone. He finally sits down on a chair in the middle of the locker room, takes his backpack off, and pulls out a Lunchables. He begins to eat it, looking around the room smiling. DAVID ORTIZ walks by.
David Ortiz does not acknowledge the offer. Nunez shrugs and goes back to eating.
SCENE: Monday, still. Batting practice before the Home Run Derby at Petco Park. Nunez, despite not being a participant in the Home Run Derby, is walking around with three bats in his hand, swinging them occasionally and smiling to himself.
NUNEZ: Baby I’m a star!
GIANCARLO STANTON: Wait, huh? Were you saying something to me?
Nunez, “acting” like he didn’t hear Gincarlo, continues to swing his bats and mumble to himself.
SCENE: Tuesday. All-Star Game, bottom of the 5th inning.
NED YOST: Hmmm... Nunez?
Yost half-heartedly bends back and forth as he looks down the bench for the American League team. Nunez is nowhere to be seen.
NED YOST: Nunez? Hurmf... LINDOR! Get out there!
SCENE: Bathroom stall in the Petco home clubhouse during the All-Star Game. Nunez is sitting on the toilet reading a copy of the National Enquirer. Honestly, he's doing this because he wants to. Nunez doesn't really care about David Ortiz retiring, or even about the All-Star Game at all. At least not right now while he’s trying to do his business.
Nunez licks his finger and turns the page.
