Cubs Off-Day Fun: Caption This!

Just what is Dioner Navarro doing and thinking here?

SAN FRANCISCO -- With more than 48 hours between Sunday's game in Seattle and Tuesday night's game in Oakland, we certainly need lots of Cubs-related things to amuse ourselves.

I was looking through the SBN editor for photos to use on upcoming posts when I came across the photo you see at the top of this post, and I thought it might be good for a "Caption This!" post.

Dioner Navarro has been one of the most pleasant surprises for this year's Cubs; he was once the No. 41 prospect in Baseball America's rankings (before the 2004 season), but never really became the player the Yankees (his original organization) were hoping for. He did have a pretty good year for the Rays in 2008, helping them get to the World Series.

The offensive explosion he's shown as the Cubs' backup this year is totally out of character with the rest of his career. Let's hope it continues. In the meantime, caption this photo.
