Coffey's triple-screw

Reds reliever Todd Coffey was more than apologetic for his being ejected after arguing a call by home plate umpire Wally Bell in the seventh inning of Wednesday's loss to Houston.

In fact, Coffey pretty much threw himself to the mercy of the court.

"I screwed the bullpen, I screwed Chris (Michalak), I screwed the team," said Coffey. "It was a triple-decker right there."

One reporter commented later that it made sense that the Reds' burly right-hander would be thinking about a "triple-decker" at that point in time.

Or, perhaps Coffey was craving his favorite meal - a banana and mayonnaise sandwich.
