The Arizona Diamondbacks ran an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit last week, giving fans a chance to ask former and current players, front office members and more their questions.

The originally designed format to allow fans to ask whatever they want to all these D-backs quickly turned into a tirade of jokes about All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt.

While the results varied, the answers to “the most embarrassing thing” about Goldy were perfect.

A.J. Pollock was not shy.

I got a lot…he makes detailed lists to go to the grocery store and cannot deviate from it. -AJP

Andrew Chafin playfully refused.

Paul Goldschmidt is perfect. -AC

That’s not all, though. The answers to a question about Goldschmidt’s massive forearms were filled with teasing.

Yes, he looks like Popeye! -Yasmany Tomas

Google Sequoia National Park, next to the trees are Paul’s forearms. You tell me what’s bigger. -JC

More impressive. Sometimes you get lost and you can’t stop staring at them. -J.J.

It appears that even being the team’s best player does not save you from the occasional round of ridicule.
