Reds Sign Previously-Unknown Pitcher!

On Sunday evening, Cincinnati Reds GM Walt Jocketty held a press conference revealing that the Reds Hot Stove had just gotten hotter.

"We are pleased to announced the signing of Muntadar al-Zaidi, a right-hander whose blistering right arm is not afraid to throw at heads of state, much less heads of batters," Jocketty stated.

The former St. Louis GM went on, "al-Zaidi is a shoe-in for a spot in the rotation."

At Reds Fest, the TTT caught up with al-Zaidi's probable battery-mate, Ramon Hernandez, who must have heard about the deal in advance; the 32-year old catcher was getting sized for a mitt large enough to handle a size-10 penny-loafer.
