Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Tony Cingrani will be the starting pitcher in the Reds' first spring training game of the year today.
I don't think it means anything. While some teams put their top relievers in first, so they get to face the other team's stars, it sounds like Dusty is putting prospects in because he thinks his big league guys aren't ready yet. (This is a record early start for spring training, due to WBC scheduling.)
But the fact that Cingrani has been ranked one of the Reds' top prospects might be a factor.
The game will not be televised, but there's audio via the Internet (Reds.com should have it).
