Amusing Thing: Benson, Mulder Signed to Minor-League Deals

Benson Mulder
Examples of not baseball players.

Within the last 24 hours, both former Twins prospect Joe Benson and also former excellent A’s left-hander Mark Mulder have signed minor-league deals with the Marlins and Angels, respectively. What if — this post asks, though — what if, instead of Benson and Mulder the baseball players, what if the Marlins and Angels had signed Benson and Mulder the beloved fictional characters of American television?

“I guess that’d be pretty weird,” someone would probably say. “Please stop talking to me,” is likely another comment a person could make. “That’s not really a thing,” a third, totally accurate source could also assert.

True, truer, and truest, is how one might evaluate all those claims, in no specific order.

Cistulli, how come your new project ‘Paris Matches’ is just predicting football outcomes instead of matching me (or any of us, really) with the finest Parisian women? Football shall soon die, but love will endure.

J'accuse!

Better question: Will the Spurs improve their aesthetic ranking after yesterday?

I thought Paris Matches focused on Soccer… do they play Football in Paris? I wonder if the Jacksonville Jaguars might consider Paris.
