Re: Reds Winter Caravan....whos going and where??
Went to "Marty's Bus" stop in Nashville this morning. Kinda surprised at the crowd as there was probably a couple hundred people there, pretty good considering I didn't hear one word about it locally... only online. Same format as always, they had about 15 minutes of questions.
Some guy asked if Brandon would move to shortstop... he said he missed it but he'll do what they ask him to do...
Somebody asked if Griffey or Dunn would be brought back, Marty was kind of smart to him and said something along the lines of, "don't you understand the meaning of no" don't remember it exactly
For some reason somebody thought it would be a good idea to ask why they got rid of Josh Hamilton... Bob Miller answered it about as professionally as possible
An old lady said she liked the way Brandon ran sideways when he hit a homer and he explained to her that it was part of the "shoulder lean" dance, haha, I had always noticed the way he ran around the bases but for some reason have never said anything to anyone about it and have never heard anything from anyone else so I thought this was funny
Brandon was strutting around before the questions and came up to the little table later than everyone else. He seemed like a really nice person and was respectful to everyone but he just puts out a vibe, which is not necessarily a bad thing as long as he plays well
Didn't stick around for the autographs, not really my thing, there were a lot of kids there...I'm sure they got much more out of it than I ever would have... overall it was worth the 15 minute drive, some people were there from hours away which I couldn't have imagined with the crew the Reds brought down but anyway... I enjoyed it and I encourage you to go (because I had second thoughts before I went)
