    Hopefully in a few years, he's coaching a few Super Mario's.

    That's really good news. From what I was hearing he was making "HUGE" contributions to the staff. Good to see someone qualified and "active" at AAA.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    It's only temporarily, IIRC. He is replacing Lee Tunnel for a few days while he fills in for Verne Ruhle.

    I was really glad to see this. The major league guys really commented on how they have helped them this spring being around.
    And This One Belongs to the REDS!!!

    Re: Soto to Triple A

    Great news...I think he will be in Triple A a little longer than a few days. Today when Narron was interviewed on ESPN it sounded like Ruhle could be out for a month or more just at the beginning of the season. Not that Ruhle is in bad shape or anything, actually Narron said he was doing very well, but it sounded like he would be gone for quite a while this season.

    Re: Soto to Triple A

    This is GREAT news. i think he is better for us in the minors than the majors. to help our young pitchers as they come up. i think every minor league pitcher should get to work with him at sometime before they get to the bigs

    Awesome, if he can teach some of our kids that circle change that he had, it will pay off big time.

    not just that, but how to pitch. importance of changing speeds on every pitch, not just from fastball to change, etc etc.
