"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."

    Joey Votto. And I'm not kidding.

    What about that guy from the commercial that 'invented' the perfect swing trainer? I can't remember the name of the product, but it was basically a ball on a skinny stick that clicks when you make a perfect swing.

    I'm sure your cat would make an excellent hitting coach, but can the Reds afford him?

    Speaking of cats, better keep 'em out of the clubhouse if Kevin Mitchell is going to be on the staff.

    Jason Giambi said last year he wouldn't retire to be a hitting coach... only a manager. By now, he might have realized that coaching hitters - which he knows a lot about - may be his quickest route to a managing gig.

    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    As hitting coach, he would be within his rights to unleash a torrent of f-bombs when teammates strike out.
