Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Paul Janish has been slumping big-time lately: 0 for 21, a career record dry spell. Yesterday, he wore high socks for the first time since he's been called up, probably to try and change his luck. Apparently, it worked. He hit a 2 run single. Unfortunately, the pitching didn't hold up. Reds ended up losing, 10-4.
Marc Katz of the Dayton Daily News thinks the Reds should stick with Janish.
There’s a lot of whining going on among radio and television announcers covering the Reds over the lack of hitting at shortstop and left field.
But the Reds tried using sluggers at those positions before and finished with nine straight losing seasons. Now they have a shortstop in Paul Janish who saves more runs than he drives in, and, guess what? Last year the Reds won a division title with Janish playing almost every day at the end, and even now, with the team slumping, Cincinnati’s still very much in contention.
If there’s any position you can afford to have without a stick, it’s shortstop, if the guy’s good enough in the field.
