Black and White and Reds All Over

So I'm checking on the Reds headlines in the non-Cincinnati media, and this article in the Newark Star-Ledger pops up. It takes a while to find the one bullet dedicated to the Reds on page 3, but I eventually get there:

Even with their outfield logjam apparently settled, the Reds are still shopping Austin Kearns to see if he can bring back a decent starting pitcher in a trade.

Is it just me, or is this a big duh? There shouldn't be a single person on the roster who's immune for the right price. Sure, the right price for Ryan Freel is a forfeit of every game with the Cardinals, but the price is still there.

Could be worse, of course. The Daily Herald felt the need to use this headline yesterday:
P-Lee-asing day

And if that weren't bad enough, the Chicago Sun-Times followed up with this gem:
What's the D-Lee-o with Cubs' delay?

Even if Chicago wins the upcoming series, we can at least take comfort in the knowledge that Cincinnati still tops the league in getting headline puns Dunn.

    We’re looking forward to the rematch this week over on our site. Good luck to you guys after the sweep.

  2. Daedalus says:

    is it just me, or are the headlines getting more and more ridiculous for all teams?

  3. Geki says:

    The Cubs really did get a D-Lee-o Dunn. As much as it Pena’s me to say it, I Freel this may be tough for us to Weathers over the next five years. It really could dig our Graves and be the last nail in our Coffey.

  4. Geki says:

    I’m sorry. I don’t know what came over me.

  5. Red Hot Mama says:

    Geki, that was a thing of beauty.

  6. Red Hot Mama says:

    Joe! Welcome. What a pleasure to have you here.

    Everyone, this is Joe. You may recall that he had a few [url=http://www.red-hot-mama.com/comments.php?id=546_0_1_0_C]snarky things to say about the Reds[/url] after our last series with the Cubs.

    Everyone say hi. And now everyone tell him why his Scrubbies are going down in a fireball tomorrow.
