Orioles manager Buck Showalter signs an autograph for three Amish gentlemen who did not want to give their names …

So I've landed in Florida for my half of our Grapefruit League Spring Swing and I have to say that I hadn't planned on visiting the Baltimore Orioles this year. I may have to reconsider, however, if the O's first exhibition opponent is a team from Amish country. (And yes, this is probably the best C-a-C picture we'll get from spring training.)

So have at it, amateur Internet copy editors of the world. How should this caption read?

Follow the jump for winners from our last C-a-C featuring Jim Leyland and Tony La Russa.

2nd — Shawn. Do you still have those Tom Emanski videos? cause you are going to need them with this infield.

3rd — Szuless. "Hey Jim, do you need a Defensive Coordinator?"
