How Nutritious Is the Baseball Diet?

Here's Shane Victorino during the sixth inning of Sunday night's Yankees-Red Sox game:

The Flyin' Hawaiian was just munching on some (pineapple-flavored?) beef jerky while his teammates were batting. Right after this shot, ESPN showed Victorino's much more health-conscious teammate, Pablo Sandoval, downing a handful of sunflower seeds. Meanwhile, as I type this, Victorino is cutting off a ball in the gap to hold Carlos Beltran to a single.

God bless baseball. In what other sport (besides professional wrestling) could an athlete munch on jerky during the action and experience no negative impact on his performance? America's pastime, indeed.
