Just saw on PTI during the "Mail Time" segment that a "baseball player in Sarasota during spring training" posted on Craig's List that he is looking for female companionship (single or married) during his time in Sarasota...the item also said the player listed himself as 5' 9" and around 170....any thoughts??? any guesses??

Shackelford...again?

BTW, it's probably just someone who wishes they were a MLB player.

Deadspin and The Big Lead speculate it could be Freel.

It would have to be Freel.

The ad said 30, 5'9, 180.

Freel's info according to ESPN: 30, 5'10, 179.

At least he isn't at the bars picking up women. Maybe he learned his lesson.

I agree to a point Caseyfan21...but it just strikes me as odd that a MLB player would have to resort to this for female companionship...

It could also be someone from the team playing a joke on him...

After reading that description, this has got to be a joke. I'm thinking it's got to be another player but I wonder who.

Yeah, the married and disease-free bit reminds me that baseball players aren't the most creative or discreet when it comes to pranks. Still a very good prank!

If it's a prank, I'll bet the fine hand of Adam Dunn is behind this.

Paired with "hey marty... are you wearing a shirt?" that would vault him into prank super stardom.

I ran into Ryan Freel (literally) at RedsFest and made this observation at the time. There is no way in hell he is 5'10" and I would guess that 5'9" is stretching it too.

Freel's a married man. Hope this is a joke.

Could be Bubba Crosby? Although 10 pounds might be stretching it..

He's listed at 30, 5'11 190

Junior would also be a good candidate.

Sounds like Freel to me. Though my money is on Dunn as the author.

That's probably Narron looking for a Susan Sarandon type, to give him some ideas on managing in the Bigs.

Just another Red Thread

Got to be a prank. I'd say Dunn playing a prank on Freel.

That Sarasota Craigslist Dealie

Big Lead and Deadspin were all over this yesterday, but in case you don't read those sites, the needed background for the chatter was this post on craigslist:

"Major League Fun

Well, the title says it all; free tomorrow, as in wednesday, and looking for a woman who wants to have fun. I am discreet if you are discreet. 5'9" 180 short hair and blue eyes. Full of energy i need to let loose.....if you give a great massage, even better. Hit me up."

Well. It doesn't take too much sleuthing in general, and even less sleuthing if you are a Reds fan, to figure out that looks like it has to be Ryan Freel. Of the imaginary friend Farney Ryan Freels.

Which is all a lot of fun. But then again, I think some additional bits of information may be of use. First, Freel is married with a kid, happily by all accounts. Freel, with wife Christie:

Second, Adam Dunn (and to a just slightly lesser extent Ken Griffey Jr.), is one of the biggest pranksters going. And that craigslist entry sure looks to me like Dunn (or possibly Jr.) has pulled off another prank. And if so, a pretty damn funny one.

That's my guess anyway.

Then again, Freel may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, and didn't calculate that this would get out. If so, then he will have some explaining to do.

Want more Ryan Freel info? I commend this obsessive Reds fan site to you.

Anyone know how tall Farney is and what he weighs?

Man, would it be great to have a guy in my head I could blame things on.

If it were a real ad it would say 25, 6'0, 175

I'm sure Mrs. Farney thinks it's a riot.
