Starbucks gets everybody’s name wrong, including MLB players

If you go to Starbucks and have ever order anything, chances are your name will get butchered by a barista in a green apron.

It doesn’t matter what the name is. I’ve had frappuccinos with “Dan” scribbled across the cup, which is clearly not my name.

On Wednesday, Ryan alum and Chicago White Sox pitcher Javy Guerra joined the club.

Guerra was called up to the White Sox’s major league squad on Tuesday after spending the first weeks of the season at Triple-AAA Charlotte. He joined the team in Kansas City, went to Starbucks today and tried to order a drink. He relayed the experience to his social media comrades.

Moral of the story: even major league pitchers aren’t immune from a good name-butchering at Starbucks.
