It’s all finally here baseball is back Meet the guy I’ll be routing for Dave Rollins
It’s really finally back. We can all take a big sigh of relieve if you are a baseball fan. I’m so ready for this. I’ve been ready the second that football was over. Now we get are first taste soon with the World baseball classic coming up really soon. There every year I have guys that I always go all in for to make the team. Most likely they don’t really have too much of a shot because the starters are there for a reason. Either money or they are just that damn good. This is my guy for spring training. His name is Dave Rollins. People still do chin strap beards?
Why I’m going all in on Dave is because he is a bullpen guy. The fun story with him is he has been called up and down, been designated for assignment 6 times before this season has already started. They were making way for all of the bullpen guys that they signed in the off season. Now he finally knows where he is going and that’s to the major league spring training with the Cubs.
“To me, it sucks,” Rollins said by phone. “At the end of the day, it’s a business. I get it. But I’m still a human. I keep thinking, ‘Teams like me enough to pick me up, but nobody wants to take a chance on me.’
The 6’1″ lefty will have a hard road to make the club but will be fun getting behind this kid.
