Yes, the image is mututatial from Cincy Reds Cards, but something happened nudiustertian that is a bit odd.

By entering the game played on Monday, starting at 6 PM Eastern, Ken Griffey Jr. has officially played for the Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago White Sox on April 28, 2008. This would be almost three months before Griffey was traded to the White Sox.

This smells of phenakism!

It gets better.

Lou Montanez, who knocked in the winning run, played in a MLB game that was officially three months before his MLB debut!

Horacio Ramirez, Alberto Castillo, and reliever Rocky Cherry, were all in the minor leagues when this game began. Horacio Ramirez wasn't even in the White Sox minor league organization on April 28!

All of this because someone "up there" thought pulviculture was fun!

Just because this game was geason, doesn't mean we needed this barla-fumble. Even though both teams baithed to playing in Baltimore, it just turned out badot.

I feel ziraleet that I just blew up the spell checker with this post of obsolete words. It shouldn't be too difficult to figure out, but a quick google search should help with any lingering doubts.

Haha, great post. I too am scratching my head over the scheduling of this game. It has shades of New York vs. New Orleans at Giants Stadium post-Katrina where the Saints were the home team.

Would you believe that the same things happened to both Barry Bonds and Tim Raines, i.e. they appeared in games long before their actual debut, for the exact same reason as Griffey? Check out their game logs on
