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

Irish Eyes Are Smiling...

March 17, 2007: Cincinnati Reds 2, Boston Red Sox 1

Happy St. Patrick's Day ...Because any day the Red Sox lose is a good day. The Red Sox were wearing green jerseys and caps (but red undershirts and socks - my eyes!). The luck of the Irish wasn't with them, though. Papelbon started for the Sox, and gave up a homerun to the first batter he faced (Denorfia). Deno scored the other run as well, getting on board with a single, stealing 2B, then coming home on a Dunn single.

Deno went the other way on both hits. I must say, he's really turned it around. He was hitting below the Mendoza line and looking terrible at the plate only a week or so ago.

Papelbon deals to Dunn

Lohse looked really good, even against Manny and Big Papi (though I hear they've been struggling lately). Reds fans seem to want to lose Lohse; I wonder if this outing has changed any minds.

Bubba did not play, still sidelined by injury. Sounds like he's getting better, though:

Outfielder Bubba Crosby's strained left calf is coming along. Crosby ran on the treadmill Saturday.

Still no word on when he'll be back, but I guess if he's running, it's not too bad.

I was nice. Hey, I actually called the Red Sox players by their actual names, instead of using the nicknames Yankee fans are wont to use (Papelbum, Big Poopy, etc.) ;-)
