    Bubba Nelson DFA, LaCoss signed as instructor

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/transactions
    Cincinnati Reds Designated pitcher Bubba Nelson for assignment; named Mile LaCoss roving minor league pitching instructor.
    This makes room for Rick white on the 40 man roster. Hopefully Bubba Nelson clears waivers and we can send him to AAA.
    Does anyone know anything about Mile Lacoss?

    This also just in........ any and all underachieving Reds pitchers from the late 70's through early 80's are invited to teach this pitching staff and all minor leaugers how to pitch.

    Underachievers or overrated? Plus, a pitcher's physical abilities to pitch have little to nothing to do with being a good pitching coach, so maybe LaCoss can actually coach.

    Re: Bubba Nelson DFA, LaCoss signed as instructor

    I agree Traderumor....about a status of a player not being a bearing on his ability to coach. It just seems like they have a call out to all old Reds hurlers.
    I thought my sarcasm was telling.

    I liked Frank too....... but he just really disappointed after 1980.

    I do not think Paul or Frank would have fared too well in GAB.
    Frank would have let it get to his head and Paul always seemed to give up a HR on every start. I recall a lot of his starts against LA as tee time for DSodger hitters.

    In 78 the Reds had 2 guys with under 620 batters faced and more than 15 HR's allowed.

    Asking about Mike LaCoss usually involves some comment of Charlie Leibrandt as well.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Charlie underperformed in Cincy.....he even blamed Bench for not letting him pitch to his strenghts. He obviously showed up better in KC and ATL.

    Heck...the Reds had Jay Howell and Shane Rawley (traded for Dave Collins)

    Junk balling lefties generally do need extra time. See Chris Hammond and Jamie Moyer.

    The key is to acquire these guys at the right time. Bob Howsam did that to a T in the 70s by stealing Freddie Norman from the Padres.
