Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
The Reds finally made the move everyone has been waiting for. They called up Jerry Hairston, Jr. - and DFA'd Juan Castro.
It's the right thing to do, but I'm surprised they did it. Castro had a relatively big contract. And he has a reputation for having a good glove at SS, which they might need with Alex Gonzalez in the DL. (His glove is not longer very good, but he still has the reputation.)
They're also sending David Weathers to the DL, calling up Matt Belisle, and sending Josh Fogg to the pen.
The Reds face Joe Torre's Dodgers tonight. The Louisville Bats are off today. Maybe Andy will be back in the lineup tomorrow. They play the Pirates' Triple-A team, the Indianapolis Indians.
