    What was the origin of this? I am sure Carpenter made some comment about explaining something to his kid.. but what was it?
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I bet Chris Carpenter doesn't even really have a son.

    ha! Carp jokes never get old for some reason. I wish we could somehow get him the link to this thread after its had some more time to "mature".

    Clearly, the off-season is taking a toll on the RZ. Just a few more weeks guys...

    I bet even when his son is 30 Chris Carpenter will still have problems explaining rudimentary things to him.
    "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."

    If this thread is any indication, Carp has a very inquisitive offspring.
