We missed this when it happened, but Kirk Nieuwenhuis' leaping grab of a Jose Reyes drive on Tuesday ensured that the former Met wouldn't welcome himself back to Citi Field with one of his trademark triples. It also made for a great image as this shot made it look like the Mets center fielder was going to be sucked straight through the wall in Gravitron-type fashion.

So have at it, amateur Internet copy editors of the world. How should this caption read?

Follow the jump for winners from our last C-a-C featuring Tony La Russa, jewelry courier:

Tony the Tiger, Part Two

1st — Jeffrey D. "You guys know of a good anti-perspirant? I'm swimming over here."


2nd — Jimbo Mason. "How in the heck did you guys beat the Rangers?"

3rd — Coach Isiah Thompson. "We owe you a big apology afterall, Tony. You're not the absolute worst manager we've ever played for. Please replace this guy we have now before we all mutiny."

HM — Mulvi. "Tony La Russa, the only man who can successfully pull off the windy combover."
