If we keep Googling like this, we're going to go blind

After our morning bloviations, we kinda thought we should tone down on the righteous indignation (just a smidge) and bring it all back to something we can all enjoy together.

Namely, the recently acquired David Dellucci's fiancee, Price is Right model Rachel Reynolds.

Enjoy the photo. And as you enjoy it, remind yourself that if you'd been a couple of inches taller and raised somewhere other than the arctic tundra, you too may have been a replacement-level major leaguer and scored yourself a smokin' hot game show model.

And while we're at it, how about a thought on Dellucci's role?
Ultimately, the Dellucci signing is a low-risk move, so we don't have any idea why we're getting so worked up about it. And yet, it makes us wonder about what this does for those players who suddenly slide beneath him on the organizational depth chart.

Is this really the end of Joe Inglett? (We'll never bet against him, but he's hardly shone in his call up.) Does this relegate Travis Snider in Las Vegas until September? Will Snider become the latest lefty bat to get given the shaft by Cito? Will we ever see Buck "Skin" Coats back in Toronto? (FREE BUCK COATS!)

You always hear that you can never have too many arms, but is it possible to have too many middling bats?

This is why I love The Tao of Stieb blog. Quality reading suggestions in the AM, followed by breasts in the PM.

Keep up the great work.

I too feel terribly for Joe Inglett. He was hurt for two weeks then came almost straight to the Show. That can't be easy for a replacement level utilityman coming off a career season.

I like Joe but think of a pairing of the Blissfully Oblivious Gazelle and a Self-Aware Gazelle like Coats in the outfield together. Good times.

Snider is hurt. So bad that he can't even swing a bat so I think it is about a low risk flier that might work out on the big league team and if not... well it will plug a hole in the AAA team.

AT what point are the Nationals going to be ready to trade Nick Johnson?

@Torgen

Nick Johnson is a left-handed white dude. Cito's got no use for him.

With that photo, I now support the Dellucci signing.

When will she publish her tell-all book in which she admits to an affair with Drew Carey?

Can we see a naked picture of that hirsute sexy man-beast Mr.Delluci? Or how about the always scrumptios (in body; not at the plate) Alex Rios?

Off to jerk off to dreams of a threesome with Alex and David.
