Wednesday Quick Hits

  • Baseball America's blog has some interesting notes on changes that Drew Stubbs and Juan Francisco have made to their approach. Stubbs has been raking lately, and apparently he owes it to simply choking up on the bat.
  • Andy Van Slyke is not above the law.
  • This would really suck, but it's also not terribly surprising. There are certainly some women that would love a ballpark proposal, but I'm guessing they are a huge minority.
  • Frank Williams, the Reds reliever from the 80's, is apparently insane. Kind of sad, but also kind of hilarious.
  • Rick Sutcliffe might be just as big of a nut as Frank Williams.
  • Yes, I picked Juan Castro. That said, I am enjoying the way the Reds have been playing lately (I'm becoming a big Jeff Keppinger fan in spite of Marty drooling all over him), but I'm not sure I'm going to be an advocate of the way the Reds do things until it leads to a winning season. Which isn't terribly demanding I don't think, I'm not even demanding a playoff appearance. Just 82 wins.
  • Paul Daugherty:
    Is there anyone more worthy of a daily look-see than Keppinger? The 27-year-old is hitting .377 in 114 at-bats through Tuesday. Is he a late bloomer? Are 114 ABs too short a sample?

    Finding out means moving a more proven guy to the bench, probably Edwin Encarnacion, or even Dunn.

    I'm not going to let idiots like this ruin Jeff Keppinger for me. I'm just not. And I'm going to try not to let them ruin Adam Dunn for me anymore either. That's easier said than done, but it's worth a shot.
