Sitting here watching the Pirates Reds game, I am just amazed at the unintentional comedy potential in Mike Fetters. I'm a diehard Pirates fan, but watching Fetters prepare to receive the sign before every pitch STILL cracks me up.
Who do you guys think is the funniest player to watch?
Rocker. By far. Everything about the man is humerous. From his ramblings about the 7 train into Shea to his nervous ticks on the mound. As soon as he rockets out of the bullpen, I know I'll be laughing for at least 10 minutes non-stop.
Does he even count as a baseball player anymore? I'd just list him under the "freak" category. Almost like Mike Tyson and his boxing. No one cares what he does on the field, they just want to see him cause controversy, which, obviously, he is very good at.
Pete Harnicsh is freaking hilarious. When the game is on the line and the Reds need a big hit he will get a helmet and a bat and start warming up in the dugout like he is going to hit. Hilarious to see in person.

In all seriousness, the Olerud acquisition is very good, he fits exactly what they needed. Getting him for nothing is even better. As far as Loaiza, that would have been a great trade last year. As it is, its almost a wash.
