    New SI Cover


    Jeffrey Renaud of CBR News writes the story of how artist Mark Bagley drew this on a very short deadline:
    Bagley, who, heroically, is scheduled to provide pencils for all 52 issues of "Trinity," told CBR News Tuesday evening, "Dan Didio called me Thursday afternoon asking if I could do the pencils. I asked him what the deadline was and he said inked and colored by Monday. I said something nasty, and agreed to do it. From then I dealt with Mark Chiarello.

    "'SI' gave me a paragraph long description of what they needed, and I went to town with some sketches. I had a sketch approved by noon on Friday, and finished the piece Saturday morning.

    Wish the Reds could be part of this bizarro world, but, as always, they're where they always are.

    I do love seeing the Yankees stinking it up, though!!

    I wonder if the switch-up of the home and road uniforms at Yankee Stadium was a mix-up or another "Bizarro" element of the picture.
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    It is...BIZARRO!
    "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."

    Even Old New York was once New Amterdam. Why they changed it, I can't say. Maybe they liked it better that way.

    There are no player names on the back of Yankee uniforms, either
    Never overlook the obvious
