We're the best of friends.

Just to recap the roster moves before today's game:

OF Jim Edmonds put on the 15-day DL
RP Jordan Smith optioned to Louisville Bats (AAA)
SP (but will be used out of bullpen) Sam LeCure recalled from Louisville Bats (AAA)
2B (but will be used in a utility infielder role) Chris Valaika called up (contract purchased?) from Louisville Bats (AAA)

In short: Edmonds to DL, Smith down, LeCure and Valaika up

Valaika was already on the 40-man roster, so the Reds just recalled him from Louisville. They didn't have to purchase his contract.

Okay, wasn't sure how that worked. So he was already being payed the MLB minimum 400K, right?

Probably not. I would think he is on a split contract where he would be paid the minimum while in the major leagues but substantially less if he's in the minors.

Players without experience are usually paid $30,000 in their first year on the 40-man roster and then $65,000 after that. So Valaika was probably making $65k.

So is the catcher making noise on one side of the plate and jumping to the other side thing getting redundant?

I hadn't seen this until Yadier Molina started doing it a few years ago but now it seems like a lot of catchers utilize this technique almost every game.

On Torres' last single Ramon tapped his glove twice on the inside and then relocated to the outside. If a heady batter is in the box I think you risk advertising where the pitch is going. I know its knit picking but just thought i'd add my 2 cents
