Hint: Use 'j' and 'k' keys to move up and down
June 2010 - Shortstop Zack Cozart, then of the Louisville Bats.
Cozart, now the Reds’ starting shortstop, has been the best defensive shortstop in Major League Baseball this year, according to Fangraphs. Probably doesn’t hit well enough to win a Gold Glove, alas.
March 2012 - Joey Votto signs autographs for fans.
The Reds are hoping Votto can return before the season is over, but I don’t see the point. The Reds are well out of the playoff chase. Let Votto rest and heal.
Phoenix, AZ (March 10, 2013) - Ferguson Jenkins and Ken Griffey, Jr. throwing out the first pitch before a WBC game.
March 3, 2013 - Catcher Tucker Barnhart takes a foul ball off his mask, Umpire Quinn Wolcott is behind him.
Barnhart is one of many players called up since rosters expanded on September 1.
Butler breaks up the double play
March 2012 - Billy Butler, Kansas City Royals DH, slides in hard to break up a double play. Cincinnati Reds shortstop Paul Janish did not even bother with a throw.
Janish currently in the Royals organization, with the AAA Omaha Storm Chasers.
The Big Donkey
Adam Dunn at bat.
Dunn was traded to Oakland today. He’s also announced that he will retire after this season.
August 2011 - Catcher Corky Miller signs autographs for fans before a minor league game.
Corky is officially retiring, and the AAA Louisville Bats are celebrating his long career with them tomorrow, with
Corky Miller Night. His #8 jersey will be retired - the first number the Bats have ever retired, I believe.
Davit Dewitt “Homer” Bailey
May 2009 - Pitcher Homer Bailey with the AAA Louisville Bats.
Bailey is likely out for the season, suffering from some sort of elbow issue.
March 2011 - Reds outfielder Jeremy Hermida slides in ahead of the throw to Padres catcher Kyle Phillips.
Hermida is in the Brewers organization this year. Phillips appears to be out of baseball.
Safe at third
Syracuse, NY (June 11, 2010) - Pete Orr of the Syracuse Chiefs is safe at third. The throw went past Louisville Bats third baseman Todd Frazier.
