Hal McCoy of the Dayton Daily News was in the Reds’ clubhouse when news of Adam Wainwright‘s injury broke this morning and described the scene, which included outfielder Jonny Gomes celebrating with a song:Jonny Gomes walked into the Cincinnati Reds spring training clubhouse early Wednesday morning singing at the top of his warbly voice. The melody was not recognizable, but the words were plaintive: “Wainwright’s gone, Wainwright’s gone, Wainwright’s gone,” he sang joyously.Wow.It’s tough to tell the mood or tone of something based strictly on a written report, but McCoy’s article seemingly also paints Reds manager Dusty Baker’s reaction as … well, let’s just say something Cardinals fans would probably be upset by (although admittedly that likely wouldn’t take much given the bad blood between the two teams stemming from last season’s brawl).If nothing else, Gomes has probably earned himself a few extra hit by pitches this season.
McCoy is just another blogger these days. He no longer is a staffer for the DDN. Given the tone of his post, I can understand why the paper retired him. Hall of Fame writer and all.
Repeat from another thread. Sorry folks. Dumb and dumber. Bad sportsmanship.
Sean Marshall quote on Wainwright
"That's the first I've heard of it," Cubs pitcher Sean Marshall said. "He's a friend of mine, and I hope he's well. That's our rival team so you also look at it from that angle."
Sorry bud, My brother and his wife were at the game in Cincy last year when the brawl broke out.
People kept bumping her on the way out (Not him cuz he's a big S O B)...I lost all respect for cincy
Bring it on
