Red Reposter: Feelings and Gleanings

What to do early in camp? Freak out over injuries, mostly.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

I'm a little nervous about Leake and Latos not yet pitching. That's not a link, just something that bothers me. It may be great to see Ludwick feeling good and Hannahan with two working wings, but I wanna see a couple more "L"s in the rotation. No links for that, just gut feeling.

If you missed Heisey's ST HR, it was a beaut. Also a beaut; Christo's new son Calen. I can't imagine Heisey shedding the "reliable, affable, 4th outfielder" role anytime soon, but it's nice to have him around for at least one more year, even if I could see him cut if Yorman/Lutz/Feilhauer press for time next year. Also, because Skip is on a two-year contract.

The Cardinal Way: ain't no more beautiful words in the English language than "Big Wall of Porn."

Everyone hates the Reds' black uniforms. Homer Bailey had some pretty choice quotes about 'em.

Neat warm-fuzzy article on Barnhart learning a lot. He just strikes me as a supremely confident bloke. Mesoraco's basically got two more years to prove himself, so I'm curious to see what happens if Barnhart ends up pressing for time.

-MBP wants to draw your attention to the Brewers' pet dog, Hank.

I want to draw your attention to the Astros' bullpen coach, Craig Bjornson.

D-More55's "What if every MLB team had a food-themed cap?" is pretty great. My top-5 is probably Astros, Rays, Dodgers, Padres, and Cardinals in 1-5 order. Dude botched the Royals, though. Who the fuck eats pork BBQ in KC?

Since the Oscars just passed, I wanted to mention this neat article on "Based on a True Story" and how it's kind of bullshit. If we're going to have true stories, why do we only have true stories that adhere as closely to movie plots as possible and cut off anything peculiar in the story? That's not cool.

St. Patrick's Day is coming up, and lord oh lord do I want to celebrate it with Gerry Adams of Sinn Feinn. Not because of drinking or carousing or whatever. He just seems fun. And yes, I did just link to Buzzfeed.

Finally, I want to mention that I am firmly #TeamLeopard in this particular endeavor.
