Reds - Signed T.I.M.O.
Cincinnati Reds - Signed OF Timo Perez to a minor-league contract.
Dreams are funny things.
If I inherited or won, say, $200 million, I wouldn’t leap for joy, and say, “Finally! I can afford to get Scarecrow and Mrs. King Season 1 DVDs!”
If I was told I won a contest and could have my choice of any car I wanted, I wouldn’t exclaim “Sweet! There’s a 1984 Mercury Topaz with my name on it!”
And if I won one of my dream jobs as baseball general manager, the first I wouldn’t do is shout “Hurray! Now I can sign Timo Perez!”
But one man’s dream is another man’s nightmare.
Timo was given the nickname T.I.M.O., standing for “This Idiot Makes Outs.” I think that describes him quite nicely.
On a side note, when I saw “Reds Hire Krivsky” out of the corner of my eye when it first happened, I got all excited because I thought the Reds had hired RICK KRIVDA~! as the GM.
