    That is the greatest. I am pretty sure he is "making it rain" (dollar bills), as one would in a Gentleman's Club.

    I beg to differ.

    I don't know what I would call that but the word tumblesault does not leap to mind. I love the name of the GIF by the way

    I've actually thought about this far more than I probably should have. I think the Reds need to win first to have any image at all.

    It's tough to act "all bad" when your biggest rival won the World Series last season and you've not come close in years. Not too mention that they have won it once before.

    I would be all for the image however. I think having a loose tongue makes the team a more enjoyable to follow through the grind of an MLB season. (Not to say that following a winning baseball team is not enjoyable already.)

    Exactly, image is not something that you strive to be tagged with, your teams actions will define the image in its own due time.

    It reminds me of how some kids try to get other kids to call them by a nick name that they define.... SORRY that isn't how it works, you'll get your nickname but you usually have no say in how it's applied and why it's applied.

    Okay, I literally laughed out loud at the "Homer Bailey is from Texas" comment, as if that was more than enough to put him on the list. Too funny.

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner

    Me too. I encounter strangers from Texas in public places just about every day. I'm going to be more careful around them now.
