Welcome Farney!!

R's pick up Ryan Freel and waste NO time putting him into action last night for our clusterfuck loss.
Fast and acrobatic, hopefully he can fill some of the spots we got due to injuries, you half our team. But most notably...Freel is nuts. Hey, we straightened Greinke out, so maybe there is hope. We are like the psyche ward of the MLB. I say Freel could be a lil off his rocker?

Meet Farney...Freel gained some notoriety in August of 2006 when The Dayton Daily News reported that Freel talks to an imaginary voice in his head named Farney. Said Freel: "He's a little guy who lives in my head who talks to me and I talk to him. That little midget in my head said, 'That was a great catch, Ryan,' I said, 'Hey, Farney, I don't know if that was you who really caught that ball, but that was pretty good if it was.' Everybody thinks I talk to myself, so I tell 'em I'm talking to Farney." Freel later said that Farney's name arose from a conversation with Reds trainer Mark Mann: "He actually made a comment like, 'How are the voices in your head?' We'd play around and finally this year he said, 'What's the guy's name?' I said, 'Let's call him Farney.' So now every body's like, 'Run, Farney, run' or 'Let Farney hit today. You're not hitting very well.'" (makes finger around ear circle coo-coo motion)

Chen pitched ugly last night and even though our bats were there, him giving up some serious bombs makes up come up short. Verlander is always tough on us, and so I think we hit good, just got out hit. Greinke up tonight. I'm ready to see something absolutely dynamic out of him again!
