The Cubs 30 Clubs in 30 Days is a gift that keeps on giving. First we had Ryan Dempster going all assclown and doing his horrendous Harry Caray impersonation, then we got Starlin Castro trying to explain how he’s going to fix his fielding by actually looking where he’s throwing, and now we get Harold Reynolds telling Geovany Soto he looks fat.
OK, he doesn’t come right out and tell Geo he’s fat, he tells him he looks “bigger” to which Soto either a) mounts a spirited PED defense or b) acts like a high school girl who just found out she’s a size eight in garish evening gowns.
The real key to this interview is that you can practically hear Harold’s producer trying to remind him what he was supposed to ask Geo.
Producer: Ask him about his injuries.
HR: So how’s it going, gimp!
Producer: Minor injuries! Minor!
Producer: Ask him about his weight!
HR: So, you put on some weight!
Producer: He lost weight! He lost weight! Change the subject!
HR: You ever been to Boston Market? Great place for corn muffins and hugging.
Producer: Shit. We’re fired.
