Teddy Immortalized on Cardboard

Teddy has been immortalized on cardboard.

Teddy is Topps in Cincinnati.

Teddy Kremer can add another highlight to an otherwise magical 2013 – An official baseball card. Kremer, an honorary bat boy for the Reds who has warmed Cincinnati hearts the past two season, is featured in Topps’ 2013 Updates and Highlight set on card #US268, a variation of Joey Votto’s All-Star card.

The card will surely be a hit with Reds fans everywhere, but getting one for your collection may prove difficult. Kremer’s card is a SSP, or “super short print“. In other words, it’s rare – Super rare. Topps does not release information on print runs of cards like these, so it’s tough to say how many are in circulation. Collectors have already been chomping at the bit to acquire the card – several auctions on eBay have ended over $100 with at least another one on the way, as of the writing of this post.

It just shows the power of Kremer’s story and how it has captured this city.

What an fantastic honor for Teddy.

OMGRant about Cueto, ESPN

Not the first time I’ve been annoyed by something on SportsCenter but Neil Everett has said twice during Reds-Pirates highlights that the Pittsburgh fans got into Johnny Cueto’s head by chanting “CUE-TO.” (Bob Holtzman also suggested it, but not as definitively.) How does he know that though? Did Cueto acknowledge it afterward? Is he saying that because Cueto dropped the ball once when he was standing on the mound? Oh, he gave up seven hits and walked one so the fans must’ve gotten into his head? What if he just had a bad start? Could that possibly be the case? That he just made a few bad pitches but wasn’t really affected by the chant? SMH

Brandon Phillips
Ryan Hanigan 2011 Topps

Now that’s a great position!

Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips has entered the pantheon of Reds pitchmen, joining a renowned club including Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan, Marty Brennaman, Joe Nuxhall and of course, Bronson Arroyo. BP is pitching for local Volkswagon dealership Northland VW, bringing some #VWSwag to Das Auto. Seems that he copped a nice drop-top for his services, too.

Kaiju Redlegs by Matt Barnes via BLDG

Kaiju Redlegs

Kaiju literally translates to “strange creature” but has morphed into meaning “monster” in english. You probably know the world’s most famous Kaiju – Godzilla. Coming in a close second is Kaiju Redlegs – Destroyer of the NL Central. Get your commemorative print to celebrate the upcoming tramplings of PNC Park, Busch Stadium and Wrigley Field. Our boys at BLDG kicked this Matt Barnes print out signed/numbered-style, ripping an edition of just 18. Get ‘em while they’re hot.

They’re running now

Much to C. Trent’s delight, the Reds mascots are now running… in their own race on Sundays. It may only be three of them (Mr. Redlegs, Mr. Red and Rosie Red) racing, and always a bit of funny business involved (think scoreboard version), but they’re running! Live!

If I’ve been reading C. Trent correctly on Twitter (search #LetThemRun) he would like to see the mascots run free – doing away with any obstacles to over come (Gapper) in the event and let them race flat-out. While I do see his point, I don’t mind the hijinx and likely choreographed result of the race. That said, I didn’t witness this one…

Thanks to our friend Aaron Doster for the great shot of the live Mr. Reds race on Sunday.
