Hopefully in a few years, he's coaching a few Super Mario's.

That's really good news. From what I was hearing he was making "HUGE" contributions to the staff. Good to see someone qualified and "active" at AAA.

It's only temporarily, IIRC. He is replacing Lee Tunnel for a few days while he fills in for Verne Ruhle.

I was really glad to see this. The major league guys really commented on how they have helped them this spring being around.

Great news...I think he will be in Triple A a little longer than a few days. Today when Narron was interviewed on ESPN it sounded like Ruhle could be out for a month or more just at the beginning of the season. Not that Ruhle is in bad shape or anything, actually Narron said he was doing very well, but it sounded like he would be gone for quite a while this season.

This is GREAT news. i think he is better for us in the minors than the majors. to help our young pitchers as they come up. i think every minor league pitcher should get to work with him at sometime before they get to the bigs

Awesome, if he can teach some of our kids that circle change that he had, it will pay off big time.

not just that, but how to pitch. importance of changing speeds on every pitch, not just from fastball to change, etc etc.
