Aritcle in this AM’s Cincinnati Enquirer about Bobby Estalella playing himself into contention for the Reds backup catcher job.
Says this is a second chance for him because of his involvement in the Balco scandal in SF. He testified concerning Balco and, after being granted immunity, admitted using performance enhancing drugs. O’Brien is quoted as saying he’s gone through all the physical testing and there were no issues.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
