Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
I was in attendance at last night's Rockies-Diamondbacks game. I was also in attendance at the afternoon Rockies-Reds game, so I had a long day of baseball.
Reds fans were a bit disgruntled at the lineup the Rockies put out there against the Reds. They were hoping to see former Reds Paul Janish and Drew Stubbs, but neither was used in the day game.
I stuck around for the night game (had to buy another ticket, but didn't have to pay for parking again). And I wasn't disappointed. Janish started at 2B and had a great night. A nice defensive play, and 2 for 3 with a home run.
Crushed to left...
Home run trot...
Drew Stubbs also had a fine night. He's been struggling a bit, but went 2 for 3 with a walk last night.
Stubbs will probably make the team no matter how he does in spring training, because of his $4 million guaranteed contract.
Janish is certainly making his case for a spot on the 25-man roster. He is out of options, and reportedly has an opt-out clause in his contract, so the Rockies can't stash him in the minors for insurance unless he agrees to it.
To be honest, I kind of thought he was a long shot to make the Rockies roster, just because of the other players they had and his contract situation, but he's playing so well that I'm starting to like his chances.
