Chad Mottloa just smashed down the door to the 1000 Minor League RBI club. And to think, we could have (should have) had Jeter instead. :-)

You know you have sunk to new depths when writers dismiss you as a big league club - especially when it is your club which originally drafted the player.
Crash Davis would be proud.

You know, Mottola's had a good baseball career. It may not have been a major league career, but it's been a quality baseball career despite that. He may have been the best player in AAA in 1999 and 2000. And he played some dynamite baseball back in 1993 with Winston-Salem when he made Reds fans everywhere dream of a prototype RF coming up through the system (a role since reprised by Austin Kearns).
