Non-Griffey post

The Reds are hurting. Scott Hatteberg scratched from today's lineup with the Yankees with a tender groin muscle. Juan Castro is out with a sore arm. Paul Janish was brought up from the minor league camp to play short. Javy Valentin is playing first. Jeff Conine left camp to attend the funeral of his father-in-law. Bubba Crosby's still dealing with calf strain. Jerry Gil has a sore arm. And Norris Hopper has the bad heel.

On the good news front: Bill Bray said his shoulder was fine in a 1-2-3 inning that he threw in a minor league game yesterday. Gary Majewski was OK in his outing, but he's still looking at starting the year on the DL.

The Yankees brought Derek Jeter, Bobby Abreu, Alex Rodriguez, Jason Giambi, Jorge Posado and Robinson Cano. Not bad at all. It'll be a good test for Kyle Lohse. He faced the Rex Sox "A" lineup last time out.

Good news about Bray. As far as the injuries, lets just pack it up and go north while the troops mend. A very fine spring training.

So John, how about writing about your biggest surprises and disappointments this spring?

And by the way... keep the heat on with the guy who will tell Jerry when he's ready to play! If you saw PTI last night about OJ Mayo you can't help but draw some parallels. The only difference I see is that one is a Hope to Be and the other is a Has Been.

Starting to make me nervous. We may be tired of hearing about Griffey injury(ies), but at least it's expected.

Bubba's still not available to play? :-(
