Things you find on eBay...

Someone is selling an empty cardboard Coke box on eBay. It commemorates the 2003 Rice Owls College World Series championship. I think that's Paul Janish on the far right - #11.

It's looking more and more like Janish will be the Reds' starting SS next year. Cincinnati has been hard-hit by the recession, and they are looking to cut their already tight budget. Jocketty said on Saturday that they were hoping to keep Jonny Gomes, which would pretty much mean there's no money for a free agent SS. I suppose it's possible the Reds could shed salary, trading one of their highly paid players, or that Cozart or some other farm kid could win the starting role in spring training, but right now, it's looking like it's Janish's job to lose.

Also on eBay, a Bubba Crosby game-used bat.

It is pretty seriously cracked.

I wonder where they got it? It might be from Bubba's Columbus Clippers days. The auction benefits the Domestic Violence Project, which appears to be based in Ohio.
