Today the Mets held both a press conference announcing the signing of Francisco Rodriguez and a Christmas event for youngsters where Mike Pelfrey dressed up like Kris Kringle and handed out gifts. (Hey, if you were pals with Wall Street illusionist Bernard Madoff, you'd be looking to save on heating bills this holiday, too.)
But darned if this contrast captured by an AP photog ain't the C-a-C gift that keeps on giving. So have at it, amateur Internet copy editors of the world. How should this caption read?
Follow the jump to find winners from Monday's argyle-addled C-a-C:
'Surely this is a Hall of Fame sweater, is it not?'
1st — Johnny Appleseed.
Francona: " ... And these is the new Red Sox Under Armour for golfers "]
2nd — PTownFan.
"Terry Fancona smiles knowingly. Theo is about to reveal the matching argyle stirrup socks the team will wear to usher in the pants high look of the Post Manny Era."
3rd — Ed K.
