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

Deno on the DL

This was something of a shocker. Chris Denorfia has been on the shelf the past few days, with what was said to be a mild forearm strain. Today, they announced that he needs Tommy John surgery.

He'll be out six months. Usually it takes players a full year to come back from Tommy John surgery, but Deno's not a pitcher, so maybe it won't take him that long. In any case, it looks like his season is over.

I don't think he was making the roster anyway. The way I read the smoke signals coming out of the Reds clubhouse, Moeller is going to get the last roster spot. Still...this is really terrible luck for the kid.

I suppose this means Bubba will be the starting CFer for the Bats. They could put Hopper in CF, but from what I've heard, he doesn't really have the range for center.

The Bats beat the Tide 4-3 today. Bubba did play:

Mark Bellhorn led the way for Louisville hitters, going 3-for-3 with a home run and three RBI. Bubba Crosby went 2-for-4 with a double and RBI and Tyrell Godwin went 2-for-3 with a double.

Wish they at least had a box score. That would probably be even less work than the little articles they write up.
