    His first MLB hit occurred in GABP, which iirc was an RBI single. Very humble guy whom I've had the chance to hang out with. I hope for him the best and a bright career.

    his first and only home run came against Cincinnati, too. that home run was one of the reasons people were iffy about putting Alonso in LF lol

    Campana can play a very passable CF plus the OF corners.

    He might be worth it as a late-inning PR/ defensive sub in September.

    Stash him in AAA until then?

    Campana still has two options left, which could come in hady. I'd love to have him, but who do you take off the roster to make it happen?

    I wish there was a spot for him. Unless he's willing to accept a minor league deal...

    No. Absolutely not. No more "hustlers", that play the game "like Pete Rose used to". I don't care that he is a local kid, I don't care that he went to UC. NO NO NO!!!!

    That wooden stick that he carries to the plate is made of termite infested balsa. The guy doesn't hit. He is the worst kind of guy to have on the team. The kind the unwashed masses love to see. The little guy, who gets his uniform dirty. Bad teams have lots of them.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    But he runs there, even on walks!!!!
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Re: Tony Campana DFA'd

    Huh?

    .262 career batting average in 184 games is bad? I'll agree he has no slugging ability, but the dude stole 54 bases in 59 attempts in his career. Yes, his OBP is only slightly better than Stubbs as he rarely takes a walk...........but.......

    He's only 26 years old. Change of scenery might do him some good.

    I'd take a minor league flyer on him.

    Cubs Designate Tony Campana For Assignment

    I always liked his speed and wonder if the Reds should take a look at a minor league deal for him and see what happens??

    The magical pull of the local player, many a symphony in Reds baseball history is focused on that one note.

    Paul is a much better player, IMO
