    Reds name Dick Pole as pitching coach...

    CINCINNATI - Cincinnati Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky today announced that Dick Pole has joined the Major League staff as pitching coach.

    Pole, 56, previously was the pitching coach on the Major League staffs of the Chicago Cubs (1988-91), San Francisco Giants (1993-97), Anaheim Angels (1999), Cleveland Indians (2000-01) and Montreal Expos (2002). The 2007 season will be his 19th as a big league coach and his 15th as a professional pitching coach.

    For the last 4 seasons Pole worked for the Cubs as bench coach under manager Dusty Baker. His complete bio is attached.

    The hiring of Pole completes manager Jerry Narron’s staff, which includes hitting coach Brook Jacoby, bench coach Bucky Dent, first base coach Billy Hatcher, third base coach Mark Berry, bullpen coach Tom Hume and bullpen catcher Mike Stefanski.

    What about race car driver Dick Trickle? I'm not sure that one can be topped.

    As we are all using our cerebral resources to become amateur comedians, we are losing sight of an interesting trivial tidbit about Dick Pole. He had an infinite ERA in the 1975 World Series against the Reds. He walked Bench and Perez in the eighth inning of Game 5 (his only WS appearance), and he did not retire a batter. Bench scored on a sac fly by Concepcion.

    That means that Dick Pole's WHIP is infinite as well, does it not?

    Dick Pole, such a bad name.

    The 1993 Giants was a Pole team, a team alot like the Reds, only two horses and a cast of thousands. That was great team, fun season too.

    Hmmm, well there it is what does anybody who would know think of it? I would think a perusing of those teams he coached for in that capacity could tell us a thing or 2.
