This past summer, Chris Dickerson wanted to do his part for the environment by taking better care of his little corner of the world -- a Triple-A clubhouse in Louisville, Ky. He did so by starting a bottle-recycling program that was embraced by his team.Marty Brennaman is torn. On the one hand, he's a rock-ribbed Republican, so he's probably not all that impressed with an eco-friendly outfielder. On the other hand, Marty's hatred of Adam Dunn burns with the intensity of a thousand suns, so he's likely going to love Dunn's replacement no matter who he is. My guess is that he'll be happier with Dickerson around, but he may be on a short leash.
Dickerson's career moved to a higher level in August when he reached the Major Leagues with the Reds. He's hoping his efforts to help the environment can do likewise next season.
"I'm just trying to make people conscious of how much plastic we use as a team on a daily basis," Dickerson said.
