Juggling Janish

It's still very early, but Paul Janish has gotten off to a pretty decent start so far, batting .375. John Fay says Janish made a couple of very slick plays on defense today (in addition to going 2 for 3 at the plate).

However, I'm not too thrilled about this quote from Dusty Baker:

It sounds like the bulk of Renteria’s time will come at shortstop.

“As long as Brandon (Phillips is) healthy, whoever plays behind Brandon is not going to play a lot,” Baker said. “But what if something happens to Brandon. Renteria is going to play some at shortstop, too. How much he plays depends on how (Paul) Janish plays.”

Ugh. Just say no, Dusty!

Then there's this. Janish is apparently a man of many talents:

Slick-fielding Reds shortstop Paul Janish juggled three baseballs throughout his interview Sunday with MLB Network. Given Janish's hands at shortstop, that's not surprising.

"I can do four," Janish said. "But I didn't want to try with the pressure on."

Reminds me of a childhood friend of mine, who was always juggling (tennis balls, not baseballs). His dream was to one day get on Letterman's "Stupid Human Tricks."
