    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.

    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.

    Hey, Joe Price was at RCast's press conference.

    But I think every ex-Red except Tracy Jones was invited.

    Another key to that was the Padres didn't want Norman to throw the screwball, the Reds encouraged it.

    Norman and Billingham to aquired pitchers with not much stuff were #1 and #2 in IP for the Reds in the 70's

    Any discussion of classic Reds hurlers is incomplete without mention of Bill Gullickson and Tim Birtsas.

    A Tim Birtsas fastball could not break a wet paper towel.

    More...Mo Sanford, who I always thought would be a star.

    Scott Scudder - even though I was very young when he pitched, I knew he sucked, even though I remember the commentators always talking about what a great pitcher he was going to be.

    Jack Armstrong - cut and paste the Scott Scudder description.

    I think Scott "Boom Boom" Sullivan has earned his way into "Classic" status.

    Mario Soto had one of the best changeups of all time. Definitely "classic" status.

    Ron Robinson makes anyone's classic team. Same for Ted Power.

    Ron Murphy!!!

    Hey, better them than the bunch we have pitching for us now. I'd kill for these guys to have those guys' ERAs.

    Speaking of Frank Pastore.... I think I remember from someone here is that he is a DJ/radio personality out west somewhere. Well oddly enough, this very day on a central bulletin board in our plant , I saw a flyer for what appeared to be a rock band. Turns out it was a band that did "biblical parodies" of rock songs, one of whose members was a coworkers's son - anyways, I don't know why really that I read some of the details on the flyer, but one of the small quotes about the band, tucked away near the bottom, was from Frank Pastore from such-and-such a radio station.

    ...now back to something interesting....
