    The legend of Billy the Kid
    2:25 pm, Mar 19, 2011 by jfay | 3 Comments
    I was out on the back fields watching a little minor league batting practice this morning and heard a great story about Billy Hamilton from Billy Doran, the Reds’ assistant field coordinator.

    “We were playing on this field the other day. The left fielder just lost a ball,” Doran said. “Billy took off. We were all like, ‘what’s he doing?’ He caught the ball over his shoulder, about 10 feet from warning track.”

    • Got my Twins tickets. Had to walk to the stadium because the online forum crashed. Woot.


      Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

        This is probably a dumb question, but is Homer Bailey expected to make the team?

          Yeah. Cueto has had some soreness in his biceps so he will likely start on the DL. Bailey is out of options.

          • If they sent Bailey down, it would be beyond ********.

                  • This is more what I would have, but it is doubtful.

                    Lineup:
                    1. Dave Sappelt, LF
                    2. Brandon Phillips, 2B
                    3. Joey Votto, 1B
                    4. Scott Rolen, 3B
                    5. Jay Bruce, RF
                    6. Drew Stubbs, CF
                    7. Rymon Hernanigan, C [This is what we call our catching duo, Hernandez on opening day.]
                    8. Paul Janish, SS
                    9. Pitcher [as it should be]

                    Bench
                    Jonny Gomes, OF
                    Edgar Renteria, IF
                    Chris Heisey, OF
                    Chris Valaika, IF

                    Rotation
                    Edinson Volquez, RH
                    Bronson Arroyo, RH
                    Travis Wood, LH
                    Homer Bailey, RH
                    Mike Leake/Johnny Cueto RH [Cueto's injury makes it hard to tell as I hear he might not need the DL but could just slide in at the 5th starter role.]

                    Bullpen
                    Francisco Cordero, RH [Closer]
                    Nick Massett, RH [Setup]

                    Jared Burton, RH
                    Jose Arrendondo, RH

                    Miguel Cairo, Zack Cozart, Yonder Alonso and Juan Francisco could all make it on. Or Fred Lewis. Dusty loves his vets.

                        • If Sappelt makes the MLB Roster he needs to be starting and in LF batting leadoff
                          I love Stubbs but he really doesnt belong near leadoff.
