    What I love about this is that the Reds are thinking outside of the box. Who knows if it works, but small market teams have to get creative.

    The article The Athletic did last fall on deGrom's transition @ Stetson is one of my favorites.

    https://theathletic.com/2026342/2020...egrom-stetson/

    my favorite excerpt about deGrom as a young SS on the bench....

    Pugliese: My brain just goes to him making fun of me giving up home runs. I’d be pitching and I’d come in after a home run, and he’d be in the corner just giggling. I’m looking at him like: “What’s your problem?” He’s like: “You know, that ball went really far.”

    It was like: “Hey, the bench kid is making fun of me.”
    “The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.”
    ― Marcus Aurelius
