Just a few things:
– Reds are on FSN tonight vs the Red Sox. Game starts at 6:05. Starts an odd 4 game stretch of 4 night games in a row.
– Encarnacion had two more hits yesterday and by every observer I’ve read has been the most impressive player in camp all spring. What do they say to this kid when they send him to Louisville?
– Reds are still “experimenting” with Claussen and Hancock (starting and relieving schedules). Both will make the team, one will start, the other relieve. Harang has only been on a starters schedule, so it’s obvious he’s won the #4 starter spot.
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.
