A little more information...from Fay:
GAG OF THE YEAR: The Reds did their annual rookie hazing ritual for the ride from Milwaukee to Chicago after the game.
They deviated from the theme of cross dressing and made the rookies wear costumes. Among the best:
Jared Burton as a big yellow chicken.
Joey Votto as a pilgrim.
Phil Dumatrait as a turkey.
Jeff Keppinger as a nurse.
David Weathers was part of the creative force.
"One of many," he said.
The biggest hit might have been coach Pat Kelly, who was wearing a silver crushed velvet suit.
