Bill Bavasi speaks

Hal McCoy posted about a fundraising dinner where Bill Bavasi, former Mariners GM and current Special Assistant to Reds GM Walt Jocketty was the speaker. He took many questions from the Reds fans in the audience.

There was some consternation among Reds fans when the team signed veteran shortstop Edgar Renteria because many believing young Reds-grown prospect Paul Janish’s time has come.

“Janish will be our starting shortstop and whatever Paul can’t handle we have Renteria to step in. We’ll see where it goes, but Renteria is a real good safety net and we may ask him to play some second base as a backup.”

Interesting that that's the first highlight Hal lists. Aroldis Chapman to the bullpen? Yonder Alonso trade? Joey Votto contract? Never mind that, what about Janish? ;-)

I went to the "Red's Caravan" last night at Slugger Field in Louisville. They made a point of stating that Janish is their starter going into Spring Training..that the position is "his to lose".
