    Reds should sign him just to confuse people.

    The only time I have ever actually said "How do I explain that to my son?", was when he started asking questions about Mantei Teo. My first thought was what would Chris Carpenter say?
    Hugs, smiling, and interactive Twitter accounts, don't mean winning baseball. Until this community understands that we are cursed to relive the madness.

    Carpenter would have accused a middle infielder of being Manti Teo's girlfriend the first time a ground ball got through.

    Walter Mondale Rocks. He has to abbreviate because it's political, and because he's embarrassed that Mondale never panned out and ended up playing in Japan.

    holy crap that's funny.

    It was an homage to the player responsible for the most famous "Can we rework his contract so he can be sent to the minor leagues" debate in Reds history.
