I'll take a mix of Hafner/Helton/Pujols anyday
Domo Arigato, Here Comes Joey Votto
"I do what I want to do and say what I want to say."
He better start hitting the HGH now if he has any chance of catching Pujols. Pujols can go right into Tony LaRussa's PED lab in LaRussa's basement and load up any time he wants. It really gives the Cardinals' hitters an unfair edge. The place is even called the "Big Mac Basement."
(I keed, I keed... I think.)
Pre-2007 Hafner would be great and I agree that he's a good comp for Alonso.
Travis Hafner, yet another obvious PED user.
Here's a picture of Yonder wearing a Reds hat while signing a Reds helmet:
I miss Adam Dunn.
Did anyone see an interview with Miami's coach when he mentioned that Alonso was incredibly excited about the fact that once he signs, he will be presented his jersey by Tony Perez at home plate at GAB. Pretty cool thing to do by the Reds.
