A Flores arrangement
Every media outlet is trying for any possible angle, any possible interview, at this time of year. That, of course, includes the Spanish-language reporters, who have a slightly more limited pool of athletes than those of us who write and report in English.
So here’s to Cardinals reliever Randy Flores, who obliged a request from ESPN Deportes Radio, even though he doesn’t speak Spanish. A Southern California native, Flores does understand Spanish. So he stood in the dugout, listening to the questions asked in Spanish, and replied in English. The interview lasted a few minutes, and apparently it was a success — though your intrepid correspondent understood only Flores’ half of the conversation. – Matthew Leach / MLB.com
