Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
This article, about Ryan Freel, has more about the comments Narron made about the outfield yesterday.
Narron said Monday the Reds might consider keeping as many as six outfielders - including players like Freel and Jeff Conine, who can play the infield and outfield - on the Opening Day roster.
The candidates are many and the available spots are few in the Cincinnati Reds outfield.
Manager Jerry Narron says there are four for-sures, "And it is going to be interesting for the fifth spot."
The anointed four are Ken Griffey Jr., Adam Dunn, Ryan Freel and Jeff Conine. The fifth spot is to be determined among Josh Hamilton, Chris Denorfia, Norris Hopper, Bubba Crosby and anybody who walks in off the street swinging a potent bat and carrying a magnetized glove.
Narron's answer to a question about Ryan Freel being a part-time starter and a plug-in player: "Ryan Freel is a starter. He just doesn't always start at the same spot. But this year he'll mostly start in center and right and won't be seen much in the infield."
