BTW, my wife gave me a nice 1932 Reds replica hat for my birthday. Google it - it's a funky looking "C" that I fell in love with when I saw it.
Somebody sneezed on Jocketty's shin and said "ah-choo" and the press immediately started twittering about Azdrubel Cabrera going to the Royals for Myers. That got shot down quickly as Kate Upton was recently seen dating Myers and danced the Dougie to prove it. Unfortunately, many assumed that the Dougie referred to Dougdirt who was still insisting that Didi Gregorious was a top 100 prospect. That inflamed the know-it-all media types and they immediately began a twitter campaign to belittle Doug. Doug was so upset he kicked the wall and stubbed his toe. This of course set off the frenzied idea of Drew Stubbs coming up with a new batting stance where he taps his toe. Intrigued, the Indians GM calls Walt Jocketty and offers Shin Soo-Choo and Jason Donald to the Reds for Drew Stubbs and Didi Gregorious. Not thrilled with Gregorious, the Tribe will then flip Didi to the Snakes for a bunch of kids with powerful arms.
Well, that's the basics of it. Sort of.
