Frisco RoughRiders Media Day
Much talk has been made about the 30-year-old reliever with the troubled past and his journey to make it back to the big leagues. Bush did everything he needed to do during Spring Training for the Rangers to keep him around. I suspect he won’t spend too much time in Frisco before he’s either moved to Round Rock or, with the way the first three games of the year have gone, up to Arlington.
Bush spent about 10 minutes with the media answering various questions about his baseball journey. Asking questions, in no particular order: Collin Young of Baseball Prospectus, Asher Feltman of 27 Outs Baseball, Kevin Carter and Tepid P of Lonestar Ball, Adam (can’t remember his last name, sorry) of the Dallas Morning News, Steve Hunt of Fox Sports and myself.
Rangers #2 prospect Lewis Brinson was, at least, to me, a surprise RoughRiders assignee and was very generous with his time and gracious with his answers. Brinson answered a wide variety of questions including who his favorite NBA team and player is. Hint: Mavericks fans will hate his answers – HATE. The same folks were asking the questions.
Finally, second year ‘Riders manager Joe Mikulik graced the media with his presence. Mik talks about Brinson, Ryan Cordell, and the talent that he will have on this year’s team. Among the talking points were Cordell not having a set position this year and Brinson being worked out in the corner outfield spots.
Get out to Frisco as soon as you can. I don’t expect Bush and Brinson to be there very long.
