    Re: Reds Radio Hot Stove League

    I caught the first five minutes in the car. The most interesting tidbit to me is that Latos is living in the Cincinnati area year-round. I hope that bodes well for an extension.

    Apparently Kelch is on by himself tonight. Not sure if I'll listen much longer or not. Latos will join him from 6:15 to 6:45 and Schumaker is supposed to be on after that.

    Latos says:

    --He "feels wanted" by the Reds organization and hopes to be here as long as possible. That's a big reason why he just moved to Cincinnati in the off-season. Said the Padres lied to him, but that's part of baseball "business."

    --he could have pitched with the bone chips in his arm, "but it wouldn't have been the smart thing."

    --He can straighten his arm out fully for the first time in 4-5 years.

    --Said his arm feels better than it has in a long time.

    More from Latos:

    --"Smart move" hiring Price. Said you can't afford to lose a guy like him.

    --Said he's talked to Pico on the phone, but he didn't want to comment on any members of the coaching staff until they are officially announced by the Reds.

    Re: Reds Radio Hot Stove League

    Latos says he likes it here. It is starting to feel like home, says never felt that with Padres.

    When asked what made him think it would be a good idea to make his home in Cincinnati year round, and he says alcohol....Then laughs.

    Says he had 4 bone chips removed from elbow a week after the season, says he feels great, and is ahead of schedule on rehab. Says it feels better than it has in years.

    Says he rehabs at Beacon, goes through the grind of getting it stretched, and worked out.

    He says he enjoys that more other players are here year round, names LeCure and Hoover.

    Marty calls in, and says he won't take much time-Latos tells Marty he is always trying to steal the spotlight.

    Marty wants to compliment the Latos' on their charity work, naming animal shelters.

    Latos asked about coaching changes, he says he liked Dusty, but thinks it was a smart move to hire Price. Thinks it will help with coaching decisions regarding pitching changes.

    Says he has heard from Pico, but says he can't comment about that further. From what he has heard from Price it will be a complete overhaul to the staff, but he can't go into detail until the Reds announce everything. He does say he is glad that Jenkins is returning because he was Price's right hand man, and helped out the staff a lot.

    I'm listening online. Not sure what happened, but they went to a break and came back with a basketball pregame show.

    Re: Reds Radio Hot Stove League

    Opening up for questions. Asked about Price as manager instead of pitching coach, he says he thinks it was a great move by the Reds to keep him, and he is looking forward to meeting Pico, also says that he will still go to Price with pitching questions, as well as Pico and Jenkins. He says it is a group effort.

    Asked by a kid what he played when he was younger, says he liked pitching and RF. He tells the kid he will stick to pitching since he thinks the Reds have one of the best RFers in baseball. He says he thought he was a good hitter until he got to pro ball. Says he takes his hitting more serious since he started seeing how Leake and other Reds pitchers approached it.

    I'm doing the same, they moved it to 1360 after the commercial break.

    Re: Reds Radio Hot Stove League

    Asked by a little girl if he thought a girl could play Major League Baseball. He says he don't know, but has seen the video of the teenage knuckleballer, and says she could strike him out.

    Says he thinks Price will be a little more fired up than Dusty was.

    Says Schumaker is not getting his number. Then says he would switch to 35 if Skip wanted it bad enough.

    Schumaker calls in and says, he is excited to be with the Reds, that Walt called as soon as free agency started, and it was a no brainer for him to come to the Reds. Looks forward to playing with Votto, Bruce, the picthing staff, and bullpen. Says he will play wherever the team wants him to, that he doesn't want to disrupt anything that the Reds have going.

    Talking with Dave Parker.

    Marty says he was the first major free agent signing in Reds history.

    Parker says he felt no extra pressure to perform in front of his home town crowd. That he was just excited to be home.

    Talking Ron Oester.

    Oester says he is speechless at the honor. Can only think wow.

    He says he was hunting when he got the call.

    Says it's hard to play for your home town team when you are not playing well.

    He is most proud of being a part of the 1990 team.

    Oester says the current team needs a kick in the(***)

    Was mad about the way the team approached the playoff game, and the end of the season.
