Red Reposter: 2/19/2009

Some news and note for you to chew on this morning while I try to get over my fear of what Twitter means in real-life.

Jay Bruce has less of a spotlight on him this Spring, but he's more important this year than last year.  I think he and Encarnacion are the key to 2009.  If they can bust out, there's a small chance at something special.

Hal tosses this in there quickly today, but Brandon Phillips will be penciled in as the cleanup hitter to start the season.  Sigh.

Don't pencil Chris Dickerson into left field just yet.  I can't tell if Dusty is making the young guy prove himself or if he has no interest in Dickerson ending up there.  It's probably the most interesting subplot of this year's camp.

Doug at Reds Minor Leagues is having fun with the new spray charts they have up at Minor League Splits.  Today he's looking at Chris Valaika and Devin Mesoraco.

In NL Central news:

Finally, Chad at Redleg Nation admits that his new favorite Red is Edwin Encarnacion.  I think he just likes being different than Marty.  Who is your favorite current Red?
