Cincinnati Reds Volunteer To Win NL Central

August 17, 2006 | Onion Sports


CINCINNATI—The Cincinnati Reds (61-58) officially put their names forward as 2006 NL West division champions Wednesday, after sensing that if they didn't offer to finish in first place, no one would. "We just figured that the Cardinals would do it again since they've been the ones doing it the past couple years, but they don't really seem to want to this season," Reds manager Jerry Narron said. "It's been a while since we came in first, so I guess it's our turn. No way are we doing it next year, though." Narron and his team also volunteered to get swept by the Mets in the first round of the playoffs.

NL West?

Either we have gone back in time about 20 years (and somehow the Cardinals shifted), or the Dodgers don't want it either.
The Onion needs to fire their fact checker. Must be Hal. :p:

No, Hal's the editor of the Sudoka pages in the Onion for his profiecency (sp) in math.

OK, so The Onion crew knows more about 19th century newspaper style than sports. Since we can read about sports on thousands of web sites, I think we're all better off this way. ;)

The whole concept of baseball-related satire seems kind of played out. ;)
