Zack Cozart seeks the gold, as in glove

CINCINNATI -- Zack Cozart nearly blushed when he said it almost apologetically, "Unfortunately, my father was a St. Louis Cardinals fan, so I was, too, and my favorite player was shortstop Ozzie Smith."

CINCINNATI -- When it is a week into the season and you haven't had a hit, haven't even been on base, you want to walk to the plate with a blindfold in place. You don't want to see the .000 on the scoreboard and the blindfold won't hinder your hitting because, well, you have this foreboding feeling that you might never get another hit.
