    In all seriousness, this is where my name comes from

    [​IMG]

    You don't know who he is? He was the best hitter in all of baseball......for about a year..........until they singed a 20 year contract worth millions.......and then got injured and never really the same.

    Now he is hitting about .200. In fact, the entire team is the worst I've ever seen having the worst start since 1931 in club history. At this pace, they will have the most losses in ML history. The season just started and they are already 10 games out of first.

    Yea! Go Reds!

    He looks a lot thinner in this pic than he does now.

    And you didn't mention his foul ball trolling with fans.

    Wish It Was So Easy to Get the Book on the Bigshots

    Have you ever heard of Bob "Hurricane" Hazel? In 1957, he came up from the minors, played in 41 games, hit .403, and led the Braves to the pennant. The next season, he hit .211 and never played in the majors again.

    It came out right. I don't take this place, or myself seriously. It's more fun that way.
