    I don’t even care if it’s pronounced differently. Dick Pole is a Beavis and Butthead Joke every time you say it.
    Okay, so how is his name pronounced? Is it not like it's spelled?

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    I recall hearing WGN announcers pronounce it like "pool" but I always just assumed they didn't want to get in trouble with the FCC.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    It can't be pronounced "pool," because then his parents would have named him "Peezin."

    Makes all the routine posts.

    You are very happy with our new pitching coach, aren't you?

    I haven't seen you this giddy since DanO's last press conference.

    When you say "long tenure" you mean to say "staying power", correct?

    Hmmm, I thought it meant he doesn't do the "little things".

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I think it's just the board blowing off steam. I'll personally build a beer can statue in my front yard of Mr. Pole if he can help our pitching situation. And I've heard a lot of good things about him. None of the kidding is personal in any way.

    Things have been pretty tense around here lately. Some very funny people have stepped up to lighten the mood. That makes me happy. So, in a way, Dick Pole is taking one for the team.... the RedsZone team.

    Thanks Dick.

    Leo Mazzone rocks back and forth on the bench, but apparently Dick Pole sits erect in the dugout.
