    Great step for David. Interested in seeing who the Reds will name as Louisville's manager.
    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 would imagine Delino would go to AA before AAA. Just a guess.

    The coaching carousel is about to begin. The mix of who works cheapest versus getting results. I'll be very interested in seeing what the Reds do on all levels this year.

    Scott Rolen!
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That would be great. I'd love to see Rolen mentoring the young guys.

    I had put the story up in the Minor League forum since I figured he was the AAA manager and hence, will be a topic of discussion viz a viz our minor leagues.

    As woy said in another thread (in so many words), he's being sent to baseball purgatory in order to learn how to suffer.

    The Reds could still hire him as the manager if they wanted to. Teams hire coaches from other organizations all the time.

    Understood. But given the Cubs lack of success at the major league level recently, I have a feeling Bell could get a "call up" before Dusty's current contract plays out. Oh well, I suppose that ship has sailed anyway.

    I doubt Dave Sveum is on the hot seat just yet with Chicago, but it may get him a better look for another team in 2014.
