All Things Bubba

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

Sunday always comes too late

The mug shot is from the Enquirer's article about Bubba being cut. At least they found a photo of Bubba to use with the article. Unlike, which ran a picture of Denorfia instead.

And Red Hot Mama has some photos of Bubba. She's down in Sarasota. She got there yesterday. I'd asked her to take some photos of Bubba for me, not realizing he would be outrighted the day she arrived. Since he didn't play in yesterday's game, I didn't think she'd be able to get any photos. But she did! By chance, the team photographer was taking some photos of Bubba before the game, and RHM and her husband got some, too. Very nice pics.

(Yeah, it's weird that they were taking photos of Bubba when they were about to cut him. But the waiver wire is secret, so the photographer probably had no idea that Bubba was being cut.)

The Houston Chronicle always notes Bubba's local connection, even when they are regurgitating canned wire stories:

The Reds sent outfielder Bubba Crosby outright to Class AAA Louisville, a move that could make him a free agent. Crosby, 30, from Bellaire High School and Rice University, has until Tuesday to accept or decline the demotion.

It's kind of sweet. A small town feeling, even though it's a big-city paper.

The Dayton Daily News has an article about Wes Wilkerson. He's the pitcher who was ejected from the Tampa game Friday night. He says it was completely unintentional.

I'm not sure if I believe him or not. They always say that - "It was an accident, it got away from me," etc. And the timing was interesting - two beanballs in a row, right after he gave up a three-run homer.

OTOH, it was his first big league game, and that sure wasn't the way to make a good impression. And he's 30, not some young hothead. He should know better...shouldn't he?

Yes, the blog (and Web site) will continue. Wherever Bubba ends up, I'll be rooting for him.
