    Bravo. I like limericks! Well done...I'll now be thinking "Handsome Jack" everytime he plays even if he's an ugly cuss...

    I've never seen him. I just assumed after reading this thread and gandering baseball reference.

    Handsome Jack Hannahan. I hope RZ keeps that forever. I love that name. Especially with that photo above. He's got that "I'm Jack Hannahan, and I'm a handsome man" smile.

    Jack Hannahan is 32 years old!!!! NOT TOO YOUNG. And apparently quite fortunate as far as genetics go.

    In the pictures where he's clean shaven Hannahan looks like he could have been plucked out of the 50s/60s.
    "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."

    No, his stayed the same age. I truly feel that baseball players are de-aging.

    Simply pasting the complete URL should do it...

    Yup. Like Boss-Hog said, just paste the url. However, if you click 'share' on YT, my experience has been that it won't work here, so make sure you copy the url from the address bar at the top. Also, if you preview the post, a 'url' tag will automatically be added, which prevents the video from being embedded. Just delete the tag if you're worried about that.

    It should be noted that Hannahan is from Minneapolis/St. Paul. As is the Reds GM.
