This one isn’t a prank…the Cardinals are considering signing Juan Gonzalez and inviting him to Spring Training. Every year there are rumors about comeback attempts. It would be surprising to see Gonzalez in the St. Louis outfield at any point in 2008, but you never know.
Juan-Gone is 38 now, and hasn’t been in the Majors since that infamous one at-bat in 2005 with the Tribe. He’s 66 home runs away from 500.
