Fausto Carmona/Roberto Hernandez gets three birthday cakes from the Indians

Jul 23, 2012, 12:31 PM EST

Let no one say that the Cleveland Indians don’t have a sense of humor.

Roberto Hernandez, who used to be known as Fausto Carmona, returned to the Indians yesterday after spending months in the Dominican Republic trying to get a visa in the wake of his identity fraud beef.  And, in welcoming him back, his teammates gave him a birthday party. Never mind that his birthday isn’t for another month:

That’s three cakes: One for the 29 year-old Fausto Carmona, another for 30 year-old Fausto Carmona, and one for the 31 year-old Roberto Hernandez.

I lol’d.

    Next headline is going to be that Roberto Hernandez was placed on the Disabled List after receiving hundreds of birthday punches.

    Now that is funny.

    Isn’t visa fraud hilarious?

      Turns out, yes.

      Leave whatever funny business you do with your credit cards out of this.

    One of these cakes is not like the other, one of these cakes is true

      The cake is a lie!

      • ajcardsfan - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:14 PM

        Thought about that one, but can’t use it in this scenario, because it would have to be “The cakes are a lie…but one of them isn’t”

        Truth only comes in pie form. All else is false like those who pray to the false gods of cake.

    This is why cake is superior. Cake is appropriate in all circumstances. What pie could possibly be used for a triple whammy birthday-fraud? Huh? NONE. Pie isn’t versatile enough. Cake baby. Cake all the way.

    • El Bravo - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:34 PM

      not versatile enough? pizza pie has more varieties by itself than cake can wish to have. don’t get me started, cur.

      • cur68 - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:37 PM

        Pizza isn’t a pie. Not gross enough for starters. I mean what pizza has goo for innards? NONE. Cake > pie in every way and pizza ≠ pie in any way.

      • El Bravo - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:44 PM

        Except of course that everyone on the planet refers to it as pizza pie b/c that’s amore. You keep trying to define pie, but that’s like me defining cake. Your argument lacks foundation and credibility. I move to strike Cur’s testimony.

      • cur68 - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:51 PM

        Only Americans call it “pizza pie” -spits- and not even all of you do, either. Just the mental ones. Thus you are overruled. Your argument is specious and defamatory. I move that you be disbarred.

      • El Bravo - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:59 PM

        Objection: hearsay.

    I eat chocolate peanut butter pie for my birthday every year. With candles. It’s appropriate. Pie > cake.

    • sabatimus - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:54 PM

      Cake > pie, but chocolate peanut butter pie sounds hard to beat.

      • cur68 - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:56 PM

        Agree, but I could beat chocolate peanut butter pie. I’d use a 34oz Louisville Slugger. I’d beat the mo-fo outta that thing.

      • sabatimus - Jul 23, 2012 at 1:58 PM

        Cur68, I thought of the literal implications myself, but left it to others to go there :D

    Don’t forget about Boston Cream Pie. Which is most definitely cake.
