There’s someting about a good hot dog and baseball
So I’m sitting a DJ’s hot dog’s here in Indy, having what’s known as an Arizona Dog (Chili, Cheese, onion on a popyseed bun) with some crinkle fries. Looking out on a rainy March day, everyone else here in Indy is thinking about our old Quarterback (ok, so is most of the sports watching nation) and their brackets (ok, again so is most of the nation)
Me.. it’s all about baseball.
I’ve got my little league draft in less than 24hrs, I’m getting grumpy because I can’t find people to play fantasy baseball with (anyone know a league I can join?), and the Reds are doing fine in spring training.
What have we seen thanks to MLB at bat (since the regular channels haven’t started showing them..hint…hint) the last few days?
Votto is looking good, and is looking confident which is even better. Just keep it going Joey, and be nice to me and give us a discount to keep you a few more years after this one.
Phillips is being a media hound. Which is normal, I just hope he can keep it up while staying the gold glove guy that he is. He’s earned the right to do what he wants, so I’ll stop here.
I want to see more of our pickups from the off season. Latos and the other guy..
And Corky…I get it, he’s there as a supporting role…but man give this guy more playing time. This past weekend was just an example that he’s still got stuff left to do on the field.
What does that leave us? The rest of the cast who have been living up to expectations. I really am okay with the way things are going so far. Sure I wish we didn’t end up as a punching bag for some inning to the A’s and their new stars (Manny, and the guy who I would have to cut and paste to spell correctly…give that guy a nickname already) and I’m happy that Posey is doing okay for the Giants. I’m little disappointed it takes another team to get us airplay, but I’ll take whatever it takes.
What’s your thoughts?
What’s your favorite hot dog?
Tomorrow is the All Star Selection show, last I checked the Reds had some chances for the team. My curiosity is how many survived the last minute voting. A lot of big market teams, with big market All Stars. My hopes are for the realistic players. Joey Votto with Albert on the DL sounds like his time to take the light for a bit. Brandon Phillips, I mean really he’s a human highlight reel. With Bruce I’m hopeful, but not realistic there is way too many good outfielders that it’s a real race.
I guess we will see tomorrow!
