Copy editors are some of the cleverest, coldest, most irreverent people you'll ever meet. So when a terribly naughty headline or ironic photo caption makes it into print, it's always hard to say whether it was an accident or some mischievous lad or lass on the copy desk having a laugh. Like this: 

Can't be an accident, can it? Can't be an accident.

The question to me is, was the author a fan of the Angels or Blue Jays?

I think the photo was faked. No way that Vernon Wells was actually running the bases.

Well, he might've just made a fly out. It's so easy to make fun of the guy. Poor Vern. Well, not literally, of course.
