"you've been traded to baltimore."

That's how you prank a baseball player.

That's because he was being a Stiffly Stifferson.

At least he has perspective: "Hilarious," Wainwright said of the practical joke. "Those are the kinds of things that keep baseball pretty fun -- besides the fact that baseball is already pretty fun."

Charlie Manuel pulled a prank (new window) on Kyle Kendrick telling him that he was traded to Japan. It was pretty funny.

I know right. He didnt even let us start drinking before he said that

That's nothing. The Red Sox listed John Lackey in the starting rotation the other day. It got pretty elaborate too, he actually went out and pitched. But he was terrible, so I knew it wasn't a joke.

/:(

Tell him that he's been trade to another team for equipment.

Sorry. I honestly made the joke before anyone could make it about Detroit.

I actually love Camden yards and wish the Os nothing but prosperity, but Peter Angelo's is a d-bag and needs to go.

Peter Angelo needs to go and take David Glass with him. Don't joke about trading him to the Tigers! Without there 1-2 pitchers that crappy infield would look even worse on defense and the Al Central would be wide open .

The O's just need to find Jeffery Maier and give him a job. That will counteract the apparent curse he has placed on the franchise.

As much as I like Major League baseball, I'm glad Vegas has a Minor League club. I can actually afford to take my dad to several games every year...good seats, too.

CSB time:

I was in college around the same time Maier was. I didn't go to his school, which was some private school in Connecticut, but instead I went to some private school in New York. Now, my college was weird when it came to TV, but the upshot is my dorm had a giant common room with a big screen HDTV and a bunch of couches & junk. So when there was a Sox/Yanks game on TV, a lot of people from all over campus would watch it there. That included most of the members of our baseball team, who were almost all Yankees fans. So I got to know those guys pretty well, even though I'm a Sox fan.

Anyway, our school occasionally played Maier's school, and Maier played MIF on his team. So I asked the guys on our team if they ever talked to Maier or thanked him or whatever. They said that, in general, if they got on first, they were hoping for a grounder so they could pretend to break up the double play, but instead just take the opportunity to spike Maier as much as legally possible. Why?

Because he "tainted the title."

Just thought I should share.

Driving his truck out there was pretty good, but having Freese's uncle and nephew act as if they just got picked for the Price is Right when their ticket was called is awesome.
 
2012-04-02 12:02:13 PM  
Wow, an actual funny April Fools day prank. I'm so burnt out on internet AFD 'pranks' that I've forgotten how to laugh at them.

Nice recovery.

I know spring training stats don't mean squat, but the Baltimore's ERA is fourth lowest of the spring!!

At least that is what Gary Thorne told me.

The O's currently have one fewer loss than both the A's and the Mariners.

That was actually pretty elaborate, getting the GM, manager, Kendrick's agent, reporters, and cameraman in on it.

That's the first time I've ever agreed with something a Yankees fan has said. Good for them.
