All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Looks like Paul Janish has a new nickname. Red Reporter summarizes Monday's Bats game:

Paul "Bunyan" Janish went 2-3 with 2 doubles, 2 runs, an RBI, and a big blue ox.

Of course, it wasn't long before someone shortened the name to "Bunjanish."

Janish actually went 2 for 3 with 2 doubles and a walk. He’s batting .344 / .417 / .578.

And those doubles were crushed. Into the teeth of a 30mph wind blowing in. On any other day, they’d have been home runs. And I’m not the only one who thought so.

Had the wind not been so stiff, Janish may have homered twice. Instead, the Bats shortstop settled for two doubles. His second came in the seventh and caromed off the wall in left. It brought in Neftali Soto, who had singled ahead of Mike Costanzo’s single, and staked Louisville to a 4-1 advantage.

And the Bats blog entry for today includes this blurb:

STATING HIS CASE: Through 19 games, IF Paul Janish currently leads the Bats in several offensive categories. His .344avg, 11r, 22h, 7 2b, 37tb, .578slg and .995ops are all tops on the team.
