Let me introduce you to Farney
From Hal McCoy's column today:
Ryan Freel said not even Farney believed that Freel made the
stupendous diving catch on Albert Pujols Tuesday.
Farney? Who's Farney?
"He's a little guy who lives in my head who talks to me and I talk to him," said Freel, acting as if he finally crashed into too many walls, ran into too many catchers and dived into too many dugouts.
"That little midget in my head said, 'That was a great catch, Ryan,' I said, 'Hey, Farney, I don't know if that was you who really caught that ball, but that was pretty good if it was.' Everybody thinks I talk to myself, so I tell 'em I'm talking to Farney.' "
