Finally, another game on the radio, though it's at night. I had a ticket for this game against Boston, but life got in the way and I couldn't go. I'll try not to think about it.
The Reds are 2-1 in Spring Training at this point, but what's 'at this point?' At this point, it's just stretching, right? Warming up the muscles. Spring means nothing. But a lack of meaning doesn't detract from the happiness in hearing "And this one belongs to the Reds" after a game.
Love looking at the AP photos. Nice to see Joe the Player and not Joe the Announcer. Wouldn't it be nice if Jones could give us a year of the Minnesota Twin Jacque Jones and not the Chicago Cub/Florida Marlin/Detroit Tiger Jacque Jones? Imagine if Jones, Chris Dickerson, and Johnny Gomes were duking it out all year long for that leftfield spot, the competition taking their games up to another level? There is a lot of potential on this team. I look at the retreads that had success under Jocketty for the Deadbirds, and I think, hey, guys like Jones, Gomes, Hernandez, and Ward really could help this team. Everything just has to click.
If you do plan on going down to Sarasota, don't buy cheap flip flops made in China. Seriously, don't do it.
