actually the Reds are going to keep a well stocked "mascot pen" this year. O'Brien felt that they were still too "one dimensional" even after the addition of "gapper" to longtime standby "Mr. Red", and was quoted as saying "with the obvious lack of quality in our starting pitching we felt that we needed to do something to keep fans in their seats during those 15-5 blow outs, as we have concessions quotas to meet, otherwise we 'll have to get rid of Pepsi/Coke and replace it with KK Cola."
