Since the AP baseball photo feed is guaranteed to be barren for the next few weeks, we thought it might be fun to hold off some theme weeks for our fabled C-a-C contests.

This week, it's: Baseball and Children

So is this the real Captain or just a wax likeness of The Deuce at Madame Tussaud's? Sometimes it's quite hard to tell the difference, isn't it?

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

Follow the jump for winners from Monday's Papiriffic C-a-C:

'Big Papi and Little Papi take some BP'

1st — Bell Curve.

"When they said they were bringing Manny back to hit behind me, I was excited. I didn't realize they meant Emmanuel Lewis."

2nd — zippydippy.

"I think it says 'Wonderboy'"

3rd — Benny.

"Now son, listen carefully. I can't tell you how important it is that you learn to swing that bat. Papi has a standard of living to maintain long after retirement and $52 million will not last a lifetime when you eat like i do. Did you see me at lunch? I ate 3 whole chickens! Even ate the bones!"
