On a previous post regarding aqquiring Eddy E someone mentioned it was because of a high schooler named Jim Coombs and on a seperate post when someone asked who this guy was everyone just gave a bunch of bs answers. So...I was wondering if someone could REALLY tell me who this guy was and sorry if this makes me sound stupid.

He's actually a poster on the board and is not actually part of the reds' system. It's an inside joke.

It's the redszone.com inside joke for many moons.

Well then who's the guy Garrett who made the infamous post ''I'm a season ticket holder and that makes the Reds employees my business''?

Jim Coombs marinates his steaks in Mastodon Blood and only cooks them for 1 minute on each side.

Since first voicing his opinions at the Reds' annual season-ticket holders meeting in March, Garrett has gone on to become a huge part of the behind-the-scenes at Great American Ballpark. My uncle Pete, who works as a vendor, says he always sees Garrett and Krivsky sitting together behind home plate, bouncing trade ideas off one another. He also told me that the real reason Gosling was sent back down was that he showed up to the ballpark with a bruised eye and refused to tell Garrett how he had received it.

I met Jim Coobs last year. He's alot smaller in person.

A brilliant minor league career that was derailed by his inability to hit a sac fly.

I once saw Jim hit a long fly ball, with one out and a guy on third. The CF was simply dumbstruck, nay ... paralyzed ... by sight of Jim's buttery smooth swing ... he didn't even attempt to catch the ball which 2 hopped the CF wall. Jim scored standing up.

Jim Coombs don't need no stinkin' SAC Flys.

Jim Coombs is not scrappy. He doesn't need to be.

Jim Coombs passed scrappy long ago.

To Jim Coombs, greenies are a sedative.

Coombs once stole home from first base. He even used the little league rule of keeping one foot on first until the pitcher releases.

Jim Coombs once hit a ball that, once it left the bat, circled the earth. Obviously, seeing as it left the park, it should've been ruled a HR. Unfortunately, once the ball finished it's orbit, it fell to earth in CF where it was caught for a fly-out. This is the real reason there are currently replacement minor league umps.

"Jim Coombs" and "Park Factors" will never be found in the same sentence.

When Coombs played in Colorado, the home team FROZE the balls in preparation of Coombs hitting prowess. Problem was Coombs shattered the balls upon contact and though there is no rule about shattered baseballs, the umpire granted a grandslam even though nobody was on base.

Smith, the story I heard was different. He actually "Roy Hobbes-ed" the ball where the cover came off and the yard of string was actually landing in the rockpile.

Instead, staticians have created what they call the "Jim Coombs Factor."

Jim Coombs is such a hot hitter he pops his Jiffy Pop popcorn simply by holding it in his hands.

There is a new subset of groupies now known in the world of baseball called "Coombsies". Essentially these are groupies of Coombs who are so pretty and so clean that all other girls at the ballpark look like the sludge from the base of a men gas station toilet. Seriously.

Jack Bauer and Chuck Norris live in fear of Jim Coombs.

And he loves to beat on the elderly any chance he gets. I think he fears them due to their superior intellect. ;)

Never mock Jim Coombs. He loathes being mocked.

Jim Coombs makes any vehicle he enters a hybrid.

Jim Coombs would have hit a grand slam last night to win it.
