I spent the weekend out of town and away from the television, but I DVR’d the Arizona Fall League futures game. I’ve only watched an inning thus far (saw Chris Heisey hit a homer and Yonder Alonso get gunned down trying to stretch a single into a double), so I haven’t seen 2009 first-round draft choice Mike Leake take the mound yet.
However, OMGReds warns me that I’m going to love this kid: he’s rockin’ the stirrups. I knew, from watching Leake in the College World Series, that he wore his pants like that at Arizona State. Good to see him continue that while wearing a Reds uniform.
Redleg Nation isn’t going to rest until every Red is wearing stirrups again.
