    Rick Asadoorian?

    from BP.com

    Meanwhile, something interesting happened on July 5th. Outfielder Rick Asadoorian, a 1999 first-round pick who has turned into a journeyman, was put on the mound in an emergency stint. All he did was strike out five over two scoreless innings and touch 95 mph. It's worth another try, no?

    Hell yeah it's worth another try. Quite a few have made the transition from position player to pitcher and reach the majors: Trevor Hoffman, Brian Shackelford, Felix Rodriguez, Yhency Brazoban to name the easy ones. If his goal is to reach the majors then he should make the switch, Lord knows his bat will never get him to the bigs.

    Ok, I'm making the assumption here that he's a Redleg farmhand?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    all that he knows about pitching is that he can't hit it

    then he doesn't have to unlearn anything the reds have taught him.

    They should remind him that the opponents will not be waiting for strike 1 before they can swing.

    It takes a big man to admit his mistakes.

    Speaking of 99 draftees, Mike MacDougal returned from the DL to pitch a 1-2-3 9th inning on Sunday for a save in Detroit.

    I'll ask tonight if they plan to pitch him again.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Re: Rick Asadoorian?

    Here's a quick story kinda related to what happened in Chattanooga:

    A good friend of mine pitched in the Pirates' minor league system. A teammate of his was a light-hitting first baseman named Tim Wakefield. Wakefield had been screwing around with a knuckleball...and one day his team was getting pounded (my buddy said, "Probably I game that I (he) started)...and the manager says, "Hey Timmy, wanna throw some?" So Wakefield goes into the game in a mop-up role and lo-and-behold, nobody could hit his knuckler. And the rest is history.

    My buddy's got some amazing stories from the minor leagues and the Cape Cod league. It's fun to talk with him about it.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.
