    What are you gonna do? You can't not publish a story about Aroldis eating 18 pastries given to him by a man named Rickie Ricardo.

    How awesome is it that this story has a Rickie Ricardo in it. Priceless.

    Now Broxton's feeling peckish and Brantley wonders what to have with his five whole chickens.

    Bustin' Babe, beltin' down some carbs & omega 3's... far more responsible was Babe than to gorge on pastry!

    The important lesson out of that is, if Chapman produced like Ruth did...he can eat whatever he bloody well wants to! :O)

    My daughter eats a bagel with cream cheese almost every day after school, and I tell her it's not healthy. If she was ever to eat 18 in one sitting, I'd probably jump off the nearest bridge.

    Chapman slides further down the list of having any sense at all. Even in the world of "eccentric closers" he's got decision making issues.

    That just might make the opening of Sportscenter.


    I'm pretty good at trivia but I don't recall a player blowing chow on the field. We could of had the first!
    What's Cleveland's closer's name? He did it last year after nailing down a save.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Guava and cream cheese pastries sound strange, but I bet they are pretty good.

    I wonder how many of those Brantley can eat. He very well may have consumed the other 82.

    So you like Cuban pastries, eh?

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
