mkainer21 - are you in Houston ? did you see him playing softball ? i bet that's a sight to see - a washed up guy playing softball...
I'm going to see Valaika and Francisco play the Tampa team this weekend - it's my turn to keep my kids and my little boy is dying to watch a game. Can't wait. I'll try and get some pictures
Stubbs because I don't really like him that much, but I keep rooting for him to prove me wrong. I want to be wrong. It feels good.
Former Reds Minor Leaguers:
Alvin Colina, Rosales, Valaika. Not because of their talents, but because of there work ethic and how they play.
There are a number, but I have to raise my hand for Justin Turner.
I know...minor league second basemen aren't really prospects, but watching Turner and Valakia side by side the big difference I could spot was simply that Valakia was a year younger.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me." Roy Tucker October 2010
