Finally, baseball is upon us. The Cincinnati Reds will be in town for an exhibition against the Bats tomorrow afternoon and rosters are finally starting to shake out. We’ll know more about who will be in Louisville to start the regular season next week, but the excitement of baseball at Louisville Slugger Field is more than enough for now.
The Reds are in Pensacola tonight for an exhibition game against the Blue Wahoos, but let’s catch up with how the players are feeling about their last week in Arizona for Spring Training and the beginning of a new season. Of course, they were talking about other things, too.
Here are your tweets of the week:
Tony Cingrani gets us started. He joins the rest of the world in being someone who wants that dog.

Brayan Pena visited fellow Cuban Aroldis Chapman in the hospital. Salvador Perez, who hit the ball that hit Chapman, was there as well. You may notice a familiar face (it’s Felix Perez) on the left side of the picture. Felix is also a native of Cuba.
