Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Five players cut yesterday, 50 players left, 19 spring training games to go.
Cincinnati Enquirer beat reporter John Fay has posted a projected roster at his Reds Insider blog. He sees the Reds carrying 12 pitchers, only 2 catchers, and five outfielders, including Bubba. (He counts Conine as an infielder.)
Trent, the Cincinnati Post beat reporter, doesn't venture a guess as to who will win the last two or three roster spots, but he does think Bubba has a good chance. He didn't mention Bubba in the article he wrote about the roster, but when asked about it in his blog, he said it was just an oversight:
I totally forgot Bubba, who is certainly in that mix and with Keppinger hurt, may be one of the leaders. Especially since Denorfia and Hopper have options.
