More on the Reds outfield

This article, about Ryan Freel, has more about the comments Narron made about the outfield yesterday.

Narron said Monday the Reds might consider keeping as many as six outfielders - including players like Freel and Jeff Conine, who can play the infield and outfield - on the Opening Day roster.

And the Dayton Daily News has this story: Final Reds outfield spots up for grabs

The candidates are many and the available spots are few in the Cincinnati Reds outfield.

Manager Jerry Narron says there are four for-sures, "And it is going to be interesting for the fifth spot."

The anointed four are Ken Griffey Jr., Adam Dunn, Ryan Freel and Jeff Conine. The fifth spot is to be determined among Josh Hamilton, Chris Denorfia, Norris Hopper, Bubba Crosby and anybody who walks in off the street swinging a potent bat and carrying a magnetized glove.

He also had this to say, about Freel:

Narron's answer to a question about Ryan Freel being a part-time starter and a plug-in player: "Ryan Freel is a starter. He just doesn't always start at the same spot. But this year he'll mostly start in center and right and won't be seen much in the infield."

The article also had a funny story about Adam Dunn being carded when he tried to buy two tickets for 23. The other ticket was for Griffey, but the cashier apparently thought it was for a child. Griffey thought it was hilarious.

And someone sent me this photo:

From someone who made it down to Sarasota for spring training, I guess. No, I don't know what kind of car that is. It reminds me of my old Ford Taurus, though, so I'd guess it's a Ford. My friend L. would probably know. She's a major car geek. One of those people who remembers movies by what cars were used in the car chases. And who'll rush off to the window in mid-conversation when she hears an unfamiliar engine passing by. Anyway, don't get too het up; it's probably just a rental anyway.

Bubba drives a BMW and if he takes it with him, it most likely won't be until he's in Cincinnati. Looks like that's a rental. Off the top of my head, I can't remember what color is car is. Sorry.
