All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Bubba in Dunedin today

According to Gameday, Bubba is playing in the Jays game. He's starting in RF and batting fifth. Let's go, Bubba!

And it may not be his last game with the Reds. The Staten Island Advance thinks Bubba is worth drafting for fantasy baseball. He's on their list of "the best players that will not be on the field opening day -- but will appear soon":

Bubba Crosby, Reds: We still like the ex-Yankee, and with the oft-injured Ryan Freel and Ken Griffey Jr. blocking the way, don't be surprised by a return to The Show.

Red Hot Mama, reporting from Sarasota, has posted a photo of Bubba from yesterday's game:

Interesting that he's wearing his big league jersey. He was wearing a minor league jersey the day before. Maybe he didn't bother changing his uniform after playing for the Bats earlier in the day. That would explain why Trent saw him in the clubhouse that day getting a new Reds hat.

He's also gone back to the high pants. Very convenient if he decides to go fishing in his uniform again.

did you mean high socks? cause we love that look. old school, work ethic, having fun in the best job a guy could have job.
listening to my xm radio and getting more and more excited for games of record. who do you predict for most surprising performance on opening day? across the league, any opinions.

I like the high pants, too. I was just being a smart aleck.

Bubba switched to long pants in 2005. At the time, he said it was because he was wearing a leg brace for an injury, and was going back to the high socks as soon as he healed. But he never switched back. Perhaps because he was pretty successful in the long pants.

Baseball players can be kinda superstitious. Jason Giambi always wears the same pair of pants...even though they're falling apart. They're his lucky pants, and he keeps making the clubhouse attendants patch them. (And the entire world now knows it's boxers for Mr. Giambi, because of the games he's played with huge holes ripped in the seat of his pants.)
