    Rosales Wins Award

    Prior to tonight's game Adam Rosales received the Heart & Hustle Award from the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association. Reds first base coach Billy Hatcher presented Rosales with a plaque...the annual award recognizes one player on each team who demonstrates a passion for and best embodies the values, spirit and traditions of the game. An overall MLB winner will be announced later this year.

    When you're competition is the rest of the players on this team it is hardly an honor.

    The Heart and Hustle Award sounds like the award they give in youth leagues to all the most horrible players.

    This is kind of like the "most improved" trophy I got on the swim team in 6th grade.

    Although that actually had some meaningful value, as it wasn't just an award based on me runnning to my lane spot every time I was up. I actually got better at something.

That's an amazing statement."

    Congrats to Rosales.

    I swear, this board sometimes sounds like a bunch of bitter misanthropes.

    Re: Rosales Wins Award

    Rosales has looked awful and awkward in 2009, but I'm withholding judgement. His history shows him as a guy who struggles to adjust to a new level and after a year starts tearing it up. I don't think he's going to be a star, but I would not be surprised if he turns out to be a competent semi-regular player who gives a decent AB, has a little pop and can play multiple spots without hurting the defense.

    Congrats to him.

    The lost, 1990's Bengals-like decade might have something to do with that.

    I hope Rosales improves and becomes a worthy roster inclusion at some point.

    But let's face it, he's kind of silly and won an award for it.
