Not surprisingly, right fielder Ryan Freel's spectacular diving catch on the warning track Tuesday night vs. St. Louis remained a buzzworthy topic Wednesday. It was also prominently featured on television highlight shows.

Freel robbed Albert Pujols of a likely two-run extra-base hit in the fifth inning. Although the Reds won by a 10-3 score, it was a potentially game-saving play because Pujols represented the tying run at the time.

When he got home after Tuesday's game, Freel admitted to watching himself make the catch on TV. Apparently, he wasn't completely alone during the viewings.

"I thought it was pretty neat watching that play. That was a good catch, Ryan," Freel said. "The midget in my head is named Farney. 'Hey Farney, I don't know if that was you that caught the ball, but it was pretty good if it was you.'"

And for clarification, who is Farney again?

"He's the little guy in my head who I talk to, and I talk to him," Freel said. "Everyone thinks I talk to myself, so I tell them I'm talking to Farney."

That's hilarious. We need to get Farney into some baserunning drills.

You have to be crazy to do what Ryan does.

Besides at least he always has a drinking buddy!

He is truly crazy, and I couldn't care less as long as he doesn't die.

BTW, who's crazier, Freel or

I thought that Farney was a giant purple dinosaur that...
oh. Wait.
Anyway, having a midget in your head...that's gotta hurt.

Strange but I love it!:D If the rest of the team didn't know about this before now they are going to have field day with Freel and Farney today!

Could Freel be spokeman for these guys now?

This is my favorite comment:

"Cincy should have a Freel bobblehead night ... with a little elf that pops out of his head like a cukoo clock, when you shake him really hard."

KRAMER: Now what does the little man inside you say? See you gotta listen to the little man.

GEORGE: My little man doesn't know.

KRAMER: The little man knows all.

GEORGE: My little man's an idiot.

He's lucky Josh Hancock isn't still on the team, otherwise he'd tell Farney to "get in my belly!!"

misinterpretations such as this are why you never tell a mental midget that he's a mental midget

I'm hoping that I never replied glibly to a post made by Ryan Freel. If I've ever caused any of you to grow actual midgets, I do apologize. Do not name them; perhaps they'll move away.

Maybe Farney is the one with the problem to begin with?

Now did I - or did I not - just blow your mind? :lol:
