Juan Francisco came into camp 10 pounds overweight and Dusty seems to be getting tired of him. Not what you want to hear about the guy who could be the starting 3B by the end of the year.
You can be a fat azz and still be good at baseball.

Are we forgetting he's 24 and been an all Star in the minors? It's not like he's had a bunch of time at the Major League level to get an idea about him.

Pitcher as well. You can be an even fatter arse in the NFL on both the offensive and defensive lines......and apparently at quarterback if the Raidas are drafting No. 1.

I think it depends on what the player prefers.... Walk-out songs are played to benefit the player, mainly if they want/need the crowd roaring when he pitches, or like it appears for Madson, wants/needs the crowd taken out of the game.

Long live life, That's just how badass he is.

He could come out to Bieber and Glee and Molina's sisters would still give it up and Carpenter would still take it like bit€h.

I don't mind some Coldplay, but Viva La Vida (the song) is pretty bad.

Well yeah, because his love for Elder is a front. He doesn't really care if Elder wins or loses.

I honestly loved picero doing uk games. I wish he would get some time on the radio or something. Had no idea he was a wr for uk. Apparently fast and pretty good

Reds cut 16

Quote:
The Reds cut 16 players today.
IF Kristopher Negron, IF Neftali Soto, RHP Josh Judy; IF Didi Gregorius, IF Henry Rodriguez, RHP Pedro Villarreal; IF/OF Donald Lutz and RHP Kyle Lotzkar were optioned.
C Tucker Barnhart, RHP Nick Christiani, RHP Daniel Corcino, C Brian Esposito, RHP Sean Gallagher, LHP Donnie Joseph, RHP Chad Reineke and RHP Brett Tomko were re-assigned to the minor league camp.
“This is probably the latest we made the first cut since I’ve been in baseball,” Dusty Baker said. “A lot had to do with the doubleheaders and scheduling. We sent out some guys who were very impressive. We just didn’t have the innings and the at-bats.”
ON PHIPPS: I’m writing about Denis Phipps for tomorrow’s paper.
Phipps, 26, hit a combined .346 last year after struggling at the plate most of his minor league career.
“He got it together,” Baker said. “We want everyone to get it at the same time. It doesn’t always work like that. I remember talking to David Bell during the season. He couldn’t understand why he wasn’t hitting. All the sudden, it clicked.”
Could Phipps help the big league club this year?
“It depends if he keeps progressing,” Baker said. “It helps that he played Winter Ball and came into camp ready. He’s got an outstanding arm. He runs well. He’s a good outfielder. He’s still learning how to steal bases. He doesn’t have that down yet. He pays attention. He’s not fooling around over there.
“He’s still here. I like him a lot.”
ON JANISH: Baker said Paul Janish remains in the plan — if he hits.
“You try to see progress,” Baker said. “Last year this time, he was tearing it up. He’s still in the mix. He’s still in the mix big time. If he improves on his hitting, this guy is a big league shortstop. If we didn’t have a guy like (Zack) Cozart, we’d probably be waiting on Janish to get it together.
“The way the sport and world is now, there’s not a lot of patience.”
Baker hasn’t tried Janish in the outfield yet. Janish is willing to play there to add to his versatility.
“But I’m sure he could do it,” Baker said.

Probably a .05% chance that this happens, but yes please.

Criticize if you will, but before you call the men in white coats, consider that a source in Cincinnati said on Tuesday that the Phillies and Reds had at least talked about a Hamels for Brandon Phillips swap.

My little brother adores Phillips. He'd be pissed, but I'd dig it

I'd do that trade in a heart beat. The one thing they need- LH Starting pitching. That deal would put them in talks of being in the World Series imo.

Nope, not this late into Spring training. Who'd start at 2B, Valdez? That's the only reason why I'd be against this signing

Not forming an opinion until I hear what Gary Schatz has to say about it.

I'd still like it if the trade happened, but 2B would be a huge concern
