    (Was going to put this in the scoreboard thread, but kind of...felt that it belonged here?)

    That's hilarious and there's a few gems in the actual article too, LOL
    "I tried to play golf, but I found out I wasn't very good." -Joey Votto on his offseason hobby search

    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    I wasn't getting the references here. It seems they changed the headline. I can still see the name in the address bar though. Funny. My brother used to work for that paper. He'll get a laugh out of it. :O)
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    That they did. It's still in the article itself, at the end of the paragraph beginning "The Reds, meanwhile..."

    I appreciate the face that Smizik actually wrote that sentence, as opposed to it just being a post-production headline.

    Well, with AJ Burnett holding court at the other end of the Keystone State, I guess there was no other option than to top his un-toppable shirt with...a Pirates fedora.



    I will say this for the Pirates' promotional giveaway folks: they make it incredibly easy to identify the dbags walking amongst the everyday citizens of Pittsburgh.

    Say what you will, but I bet we see a Reds version of these within the next couple years.

    Pirates don't wear fedoras. They should have an eyepatch giveaway. Or maybe parrots.
    No Victims, by me

    The rest is drama.

    I'm not a fedora guy, nor will I ever wear one...

    But this comment is just ignorant. You ever been to OTR? I'm out of place without one on, and I love OTR...and don't consider many of their residences or business owners dbags.

    I've been to OTR, quite a few times. It's not exactly fedora central, lol.
