    RZ prank

    For my 1000th post I thought I would share a prank that I did not do nor do I intend to do. I had a thought after it was released that the Reds may go to arbitration hearings with Aaron Harang. This was to make a post that Harang was traded and then after everyone went nuts, I would post an article from 2003 from when Harang got traded to the Reds. I'm sure it wouldn't have been taken real well but it's funny enough that I thought I would at least still share the story.

    BTW - I don't recall ever seeing another post from Grady.

    It's not too soon to start planning something special for April 1, 2007.

    Someone who has been here a lot longer than you did something similar a few years ago concerning Barry Larkin. It didn't go over well at all. People wasted their time searching for the story elsewhere and were not happy. I think this individual would advise you against it. But do what you gotta do- just be prepared to not be taken seriously afterwards.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    It would have highlighted the meaningless nature of post count totals.

    Probably not a good idea. I seem to remember some idiot making this post a few years ago which was not well received.

    Interestingly Grady's rep has taken a little hit today (a year and a half after the fact). He's down to 236.
