Why do the Reds take so long? Pitchers and catchers report for the Yankees today!
This is a brutal time of year. The Super Bowl, even the Pro Bowl, are in the rear-view mirror, and spring training has not yet started. Arrghhh.
Some teeny bits of news….
According to this Reds press release, RHP Matt Belisle, LHP Bill Bray, RHP Jared Burton, RHP Todd Coffey, LHP Jon Coutlangus, OF Bubba Crosby, OF Chris Denorfia, OF Chris Dickerson, IF/OF Ryan Freel, OF Josh Hamilton, RHP Gary Majewski, LHP Eric Milton, LHP Brian Shackelford and 1B Joey Votto are already in Sarasota, working out on their own.
Krivsky is there already, too.
The Cincinnati Enquirer has posted a projected 25-man roster and lineup. I don't like it. And not just because they don't see Bubba making the cut. Hamilton and Conine as the only reserve OFers? And about that three catchers thing…
If Bubba is already down in Florida, he must have just arrived. He's been training in Arizona the past few weeks. He returned to Houston this weekend for his brother's wedding.
Here's hoping for lots more highlights this season….
