Since it presaged the Reds' sweep, we're going to try this again next week. In fact, just to be safe, we'll do the same picture again and please everyone type the same exact comments in chronological order.

In seriousness, we're going to pilot this feature on Saturdays and announce the winners on Mondays. After a series, we'll do a "Tournament of Champions" and put the best caption to a vote - with a prize for the winner. (DISCLAIMER: Prize may kind of suck).

Here's your winner's circle for the sun-spotted Votto photo above:

Winner

Votto flew so close to the sun...the sun caught on fire. -- PeteyHendrix

Runners up

"Dad, leave me alone. You don't even know anything about baseball." -- Neuge (ED. note: I think this is meant as a sacreligious joke, rather than any reference to Votto's personal life. Sure to offend every segment of our audience.)

"That is not the sun! It's the bright glowing spirit of Ted Williams shining down and giving his blessing to his greatest disciple on his march toward his first (of many) World Series victory and a triple crown topped off with a .400 avg." -- Mr. Redlegs_Posse

"And as he walked to first base, Votto quickly calculated the time it took for light to reach the stadium and, using that number as a reference point, determined how long, indeed, it seemed to take for the ball to get from the pitcher's hand to home plate, and how next time, perhaps, he would hit an opposite-field triple." -- Cuetotally Amazing
