Awww Foot, man! Twins sign LeCroy. Again.

\”We\’re looking for some depth in the catching ranks,\’\’ general manager Terry Ryan said.

Wait. What? Did he not see Frank Robinson crying after one of LeCroy\’s most recent catching \”performances\”?

Either way, good to have ya back, Matty.

    wow. maybe they wanted someone to help counsel fatty ponson when he develops his inevitable case of the gout?

    seriously– can we make a run for david wells so we can have the all-gout team?

    less for self-promotion, more for a fantastic pic of lecroy. i just imagine him speaking like roscoe p. coltrane.

    That is a great picture.
    Here’s the Deadspin treatment of the incident. Notable quotes include:
    “Watching him come out there was the longest 2 1/2 minutes of my life.” –Doug Mientkiewicz, Twins first baseman, on being pinch run for by Matt LeCroy
    Also the bit about the planned Royals stadium promotions put me near tears: “Each game, between the top and bottom of the seventh, Runelvys Hernandez and Matt Stairs will engage in a pie-eating contest. The winner will get to take a nap for the remainder of the game.”
