Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
Paul Janish had a nice nice play a week or so ago. No, it wasn't on defense. He worked a walk, then helped a run score with a nice takeout slide. His manager, Fredi Gonzalez, went out of the way to give him credit after the game.
Since then, Janish has gotten more playing time. Always as a LIDR...until tonight. Starting third baseman was ejected for arguing balls and strikes, and Janish, the only backup infielder on the roster, is in at third.
He's made some some great plays at third base so far. Holy cow, with Janish at third and Andrelton Simmons at shortstop, the left side of the infield is downright impenetrable.
Meanwhile, Tony Cingrani started for the Reds. He pitched well, but didn't get much run support. He gave up three runs, two unearned. Reds third baseman Jack Hannahan has three errors in the game. The contrast between him and Janish is stunning.
