    Wow Burns and Michalak gone?!

    I like Norris, but him being up here is just a bonus!

    Norris Hopper - that has to be one of the great baseball names of recent memory.

    Looks like he's had a decent year at Chattanooga and Louisville. Not much pop in the bat, but he hits for average.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    from Marc:

    Chris Michalak's grandmother passed away last night at age 102, so he's headed to the bereavement list for a minimum of three days. He's still expected to start Wednesday.

    In the meantime, the Reds have recalled the International League's leading hitter (.349), Norris Hopper, from Louisville. He should be here in time to play today. Mike Burns was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man.
    Chris my thoughts are with you and your family and friends

    Michalak's not gone- he's just deactivated.

    I can see Mike Burns becoming a Nashville Sound (MIL) very soon.

    This is Hopper's Year of En Fuego. But the best comparison is still an African-American version of famed journeyman fifth-outfielder Jason Tyner. He'd never become a prospect because his whole ability-to-hit-.300 thing bloomed a little later. 2006 is the first year he's made it to AAA, and he's done what he's done after getting demoted back to AA in April due to struggles of the lumber variety.

    Great. Want to see Hopper. Love his AAA performance.

    But he's probably here until Wednesday when the Reds will need a fifth starter. Trader Wayne will likely get one for cash or a player to be named.
