Nice to see Bo Lanier getting a little press from Trent Rosecrans:
First off, the roster was trimmed a bit today. LHP Phil Dumatrait was optioned to Class AAA Louisville, OF Chris Dickerson and RHP Calvin Medlock were optioned to Class AA Chattanooga and LHP Jason Kershner and RHP Tom Shearn were reassigned to minor league camp.
There are now 50 players in camp (not including the three injured players, LHP Eddie Guardado, C Miguel Perez and INF Jeff Keppinger.
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.
