Fausto Carmona was way too cool of a name to be real.

Speaking of false identities, Marlins sign Juan Carlos 'Leo Nunez' Oviedo. Looking to trade him now as their BP is full.

It's true. Funny that for years I've liked that dude just because I thought he had such a cool name. AND IT WAS FAKE THE WHOLE TIME!

I don't even know what to believe anymore.

Indeed. First Rob Lowe, then Fausto Carmona? Who is left to trust?

Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? Out nation, with the exception of the Pacific northwest, turns their lonely eyes to you.

His kid did. Kenny himself probably didn't give a shit. He was probably texting the whole time, trying to wheel and deal for some more minor league pitchers.

Weren't we told to drop this by a mod? (PS, show me where I said diMaggio shouldn't be in the hall of fame)

So I just caught up on my sports news and I still see that Fielder doesn't have a team. Makes me wonder if it would almost be smarter for him to sign a 1 year deal with the Brewers and slug it for another year and see if a need arises next offseason.

Wishful thinking I guess.

There was a report at some point yesterday claiming that Fielder and the Nationals had agreed on an 8 year deal. That was false, apparently.

I'd be fine with that, though. Keep his fat ass in the NL. Let him keep beating the shit out of NL pitchers.

GAF, I actually thought he might go to the Cubs. I was at least hoping for it because I like the Cubs as well. I'm a rare fan of both teams.
