    2009 Spring Training pictures


    Manager Dusty Bakers surveys the scene from behind the pitching mounds as pitchers and catchers reported for the first day of Spring Training 2009 for the Cincinnati Reds in Sarasota, Florida.


    Blue sky, white clouds, green grass and temperatures in the high 70's were the order of the day as the first official workout began.


    Pitcher Homer Bailey threw 40 pitches in his first drill.


    Flanked by coaches and players, Manager Dusty Bakers sits on a chair while watching pitchers throw.


    Catcher Ryan Hanigan in blue blocker sunglasses and his catching helmet and mask. The Reds are beginning their final spring at the Florida facility. Next season they will move to Goodyear, AZ.

    I wonder if Homer ever even sees the catcher.

    Pitcher Micah Owings practices bunting.
    Maybe he should "miss" some of those bunt signs this season....

    Yes, indeed. He used to look like a young Christian Bale. Now he looks like a young Frank Langella.

    What a horribly unflattering picture, makes him look like the vampire from Dark Shadows.

    Owings practicing bunting? Why so Taveras can come up? They should just let all the pitchers spin to win!
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    The guy in the pictures with the #19 sure doesn't seem to be Joey Votto.

    Good catch. I think it's Bill Doran.

    Maybe Joey Votto's having visa problems.

    He got caught with high grade Canadian Syrup at the border. Canadian officials don't like letting that out of the country.
