Yep, there'd be a press conference, we'd all pray that he could "find himself" and turn into a middle of the order run producer.
It's sure nice now to sign guys like this for the bench.
Nice move. He's obviously a backup player, but not an embarrassment to send to the plate as a LH pinch hitter (as some of the Reds LH bench hitters before XPaul were last year).

Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
