Tom Hume has taken over for Vern Rhule(get well Vern)until his return.Now I know that
our bullpen are not the "Nasty Boys" (well not in a good way :D )but Hume seemed to
work wonders with these guys.Should the Reds move him back and get an interim
pitching coach or does he handle both jobs?

Considering only your title, I'd say yes. He can't be much worse than Burns...

I vote for Mario Soto. :)

Define "work wonders"? ;)

This BP is downright terrible. They should be lined up along the BP wall and given a blindfold and cigarette. :lol:

:D Well work wonders is a bit much but they were a little better last year.

What I have realized during Tom's stint as interim pitching coach was that they've been ordering too many pizzas in the bullpen. Those frequent walks to the mound are good for him.
