    Did his bags even touch the clubhouse floor??
    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...

    I'm always surprised by fan reaction to the FO micromanaging it's roster.... Sports talk radio was going nuts this week. As if Cueto's schedule in AA should be blown up so he could sit in the bullpen for a few days in case the reds needed a 5th inning can of water. Generally WAY to much is made of the AAAA shuttle and way too little thought is given to context.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

    I didn't even know Coffey had came up. It must have been for just a few minutes.

    Oh, but "way too little thought" is great radio.

    Re: Coffey sent back down...

    Once they send a guy back down, what is the rule on how long they have to wait before they can call him up again?

    For some reason, I was thinking it was ten days?? Does it matter if Louisville's season ends?

    In any event, I am sure we will see Coffey in September. I really hope that he can find whatever it is he lost from last year(movement on his pitches??). I had hopes that he could be a benefit in the bullpen....
