Todd Coffey broke the curse.

I like it. The thing is redmachine2003, the Reds havent really sent out any of their top prospects to the AFL in recent memory, so the odds of the guys making a leap forward after that was in trouble to begin with.

...although he said later that pitching in the AFL gave him a spell of tired/dead arm the following season, if I recall correctly.

One of the main functions of the AFL appears to be shining up players for trades, especially pitchers. Unless the pitcher had been injured or otherwise out for part or all of the regular season, it doesn't appear that most are helped by throwing in the AFL right after a full season of minor-league innings.

I think the AFL can have mixed results.

Every AFL game I've been to has been just crawling with Asst GM types and Scouts. Some have resembled a combine. Flaws are maginfied and amplified and in front of every team in baseball.

Last year Kevin Howard had a monster AFL campaign, yet everyone saw the hitch in his swing, and not a single team took a flier on him during the Rule V draft.

Yet Andre Ethier had a similiar coming out campaign and the Dodgers did whatever they could to net him. Now he's a solid starting OF for them.

Overall I think it's a mixed bag. Some will get injured (a la Jason Kubel & Wade Townsend) some will get dead arms, some will get found out, and some could have their coming out parties.

You never really know what you are going to get.

The coach we're supplying is Jamie Dismuke, who will be the Bench Coach. He currently is the Lookouts hitting coach.
