Funny: Ryan Howard’s cup falling out of his jock in the middle of the Phillies-Dodgers game last night.

Funnier: the Crossing Broad blog taking the video of it and setting it to Paul Simon’s “Slip Sliding Away.”

And yes, I am in junior high school. Thanks for asking!

The Reds have signed outfielder Ben Revere to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports. Revere is expected to take home a salary between $1 million and $1.5 million if he makes the major league roster, Heyman adds.

Revere, 29, spent last season with the Angels. He batted a light .275/.308/.344 in 308 plate appearances. Revere does have some speed as he stole 21 bases last year.

Revere will try to earn a spot on the roster as a backup outfielder. The Reds’ starting spots are spoken for with Adam Duvall, Billy Hamilton, and Scott Schebler.
