Spring Training think tank
We’re three days from Reds pitchers and catchers reporting and I’m two days away from heading to Sarasota….
Spring Training always has interesting storylines and subplots — some we know already while others develop after a few weeks. What are some of the potential Reds stories at camp that will interest you?
Is it position battles — left field, fifth starter, bench spots? Is it Alex Gonzalez and whether he is healthy enough to play shortstop regularly? Is it the plan to try to win with speed, pitching and defense over the power/home run approach that hasn’t worked? Or the core of younger players that will be expected to carry the team?
I have a few thoughts of my own but I’d love to take a few of your ideas to Florida. It could be a suggestion of a player profile or something broader. Go ahead and chime in here please.
