    He's already got a great manager name. A manager should be named Corky and your pitching coach Lefty

    Chris Chambliss is also Charlotte's manager.

    Wont embarrass himself, are you kidding me the guy is awful! Look at his stats! The guys major league career BA isn't even 200 and his career BA in AAA is 250. There is no way this guy will ever get close to joining the reds and I still think this was a stupid trade. I dont care if Norris hopper isnt great he's WAY better than Miller and can be a serviceable major leaguer.

    Can we trade Chambliss for Jacoby? Just a thought.

    Someone in AAA had to go to make room for the younger guys. At least Norris will be able to go somewhere where he might be able to stick on a roster.

    whew, with Castillo on the DL I as worried about not having a quality 3rd catcher! I expect him to be added to the 25-man within the week. Got to give it up to walt, he knows how to go out and fill need!

    But seriously Miller isn't really any worse than Castillo offensively it was just gonna take the league more PA's to figure this out. And at least Corky can catch a little bit.

    Kinda happy for Hopper really. Yes, he has no power. Neither does Taveras. And I think it's debatable whether Patterson was that better overall for the money paid. With the Sox there's a better chance he'll actually be used. Good for him.

    as I said in the other thread

    Its amazing that a team could actually get such a bad return for Norris Hopper.

    This looks to me primarily like a favor to Hopper and to the Sox and a way to open up playing time for Chris Heisey. I've no problem with any of those, and I wish Hopper the best.
