From this morning’s Cincinnati Enquirer:
DOUBLE TROUBLE: Twice during Thursday’s game, Sean Casey grounded into a double play with Ken Griffey Jr. on first base. In the 14 games Griffey and Casey have occupied the second and third spots in the Reds’ batting order, Casey has grounded into a double play with Griffey on base six times.
So, I would surmise then than the double plays are Junior’s fault? Probably because of his hamstring issue? Not because of Casey’s propensity for grounding to the middle of the infield….nah, that couldn’t be it.
If Casey killed someone with an axe, the Enquirer would blame the axe.
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.
