Another "Shrek" Sequel

Baseball season is almost upon us, and I'll have my annual tribute on Opening Day in a few weeks. But in the meantime, during spring training, the DMN has been running profiles of various Rangers players every day. But it was surprising to me, while reading Saturday's paper yesterday (yes, I was behind), to see a profile on...Kevin Mench? The one they called "Shrek" (see this picture and maybe you'll catch the resemblance), back in Texas? I thought they traded him a few years ago...

Well, my memory wasn't wrong, but, sure enough, he's back, having signed a minor-league deal last month. Here's hoping he makes the team, as he was always one of my favorites when he was here.
