Since things are a might slow in the old Hot Stove League at the moment, and anticipation of the Winter Meetings continues to stoke the fire, may I offer a Baseball America Reds update, via our friend John Fay?
Maybe Daryl Thompson really does have a shot at making it in the Reds bullpen. The club appears pleased with the former Expo/Nat after his performance in the AFL. Also, Juan Francisco is tearing up the Dominican Winter League, again, which is terrific but not necessarily an indicator of MLB success.
As an added bonus, Mr. Fay notes that the Reds have yet to announce their minor league field staff assignments, except for Louisville.
