Small World Part IV -- Deno sighting

I was riding up the escalator last night to the BART platform when I noticed the guy in the front of me was none other than Chris Denorfia.

Denorfia was traded from the Reds to A's, of course.

"I asked if I could come out for the series," he said.

Denorfia is coming back from Tommy John. He's been rehabbing in Cincinnati. "I'm almost ready to throw," he said. He's going to move to Phoenix next month to rehab at A's facility there.

I like Marcus McBeth and I think Norris Hopper gives about what Denorfia would. But, after watching the A's, I have little doubt that Denorfia will work out for them. Billy Beane knows how to put a club together.

Why was Gosling given #36 instead of the #48 that he had in Spring Training and that was listed in the 40 man Roster? Just curious.

That's good news about Deno, I am a big fan of his, saw him play some outstanding centerfield at Louisville, to me he is a better centerfielder than Hopper, Hopper does better on the corner outfield postions. I was sorry to see Deno go, he did everything the Reds asked of him when he was in the organization. I shall continue to root for him, he may be like Sean and get the chance to play in the "big dance" long before the Reds do.

Please tell Chris(if you see him at the game tonight)that we the fans wish him a speedy recovery and a long and successful career, and that although his stay here was not long, we appreciate his effort and talents. Just seemed like a great guy and potentially a great player. Please keep us posted on his progress.

The Chris Denorfias are dime a dozen in baseball and why Reds fans slobbered over this guy like he's the next DiMaggio (Joe, not Dom) is beyond me.
