Cincinnati Enquirer article on Rob Stratton’s attempt to make the team as the 25th man, how he changed his approach to hitting shortly before getting his release last year from Fresno, and how he seemed to turn around in Louisville (and carried through to this spring).
If you believe that someone can win a job on the bench in the spring, then he should probably make the team.
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.
