I readily admit that I’m prejudiced for our Spotlight players…but can someone explain to me why in the world the Reds would not ask Matt Klinker to appear at Redsfest this weekend?

He’s a local kid, went to Lakota West High School in the Cincinnati area…
He’s smart, well-spoken, and friendly…. And he went from High A to AAA last season (putting up better numbers at every level)…

It’s not like it would cost them a plane ticket or anything…he lives 30 minutes from GABP…

I just don’t understand it.
