Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Reds first baseman Joey Votto was put on the bereavement list yesterday. He asked that the team not reveal the reason.
Whatever it is, it's opened up a spot for Andy Phillips. With a lefty on the mound today, Andy gets to brush the cobwebs off his glove and start at first base. (Dusty still hasn't noticed Andy hits righties better than lefties.) He's batting seventh against Wandy Rodriguez as the Reds take on the Houston Astros.
It looks like the Reds are basically blowing up their team. They traded Griffey at the deadline, and today DFA'd their starting catcher, David Ross. And it sounds like that's just the beginning.
Don't know what this means for Andy. He probably won't be a Red next year.
