Does anyone know what is up with Don Gullet? I always thought he was very highly thought of as a pitching coach. If this is so, it would seem he would have landed somewhere. Weren't the Yankees always after him?

I thought I heard he was home in KY tending to the farm.

Yep, Chip. This was asked during the wonderful banana-phone-time last Friday. Marty said that Don is on the farm in KY.

I know Don very well and he is at home in Ky. He is doing alot of hunting and fishing. He has had a couple of offers to return to coaching but declined. He said that he would only return in the right situation. I know that he has many friends in baseball and that he stays in contact with them. I also know that he still follows the Reds closely and is very much enjoying himself.

I saw Don and Don Jr. recently. Don is "pretty damn happy" being on the farm. He looks good and seemed pretty much at peace.

I wouldn't be surprised if every so often his head involuntarily jerks to the right as if he's watching another ball fly out of the park.
