Found July 27, 2013 on Next Impulse Sports:
Shin-Soo Choo of the Reds will probably never hear the end of this one, especially from his teammates. Friday night when his Reds took on the Dodgers, Choo took off from first on a hit and run and paid a little too much attention to Hanley Ramirez of the Dodgers who pretended he had grabbed the ball as it flew by him and into center field. Skip Schumacher also played an integral role in confusing Choo as well. Just enjoy the madness. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

How Manny Parra Became My Favorite Player in 3 Words

Manny Parra was not always my favorite player. Some of you might remember when I said the Reds should give out booze, like they do with 11 strikeout pizza, when Parra and Alfredo Simon pitched in the same game. Parra has been pretty great lately, something I attributed to his Boston Rob like facial hair. After he got out of a late inning jam in the Reds win last night, I made more...
