There's nothing official about it on the Reds' official site yet, but Brad Salmon and DeWayne Wise are no longer listed on the active roster there, and I'm seeing reports that they've been sent down and that Josh Hamilton and Todd Coffey have been called up from Louisville and will join the team in St. Louis tomorrow for the game against the Cardinals.
Those are the facts. Want an opinion? Hamilton coming back is a good thing. Coffey, I'm not so sure about.
This is an off day for the Reds, so there's no game thread and not much else to do except perform the cyber equivalent of standing in the front window waiting to exclaim “Mama's home!” when RHM returns to resume command of this particular corner of the World Wide Web. Until then, I'm going to go play with the two new radios I bought Saturday and hope that Homer Bailey doesn't live up to his name this coming weekend (Homer, what an ironic name for a pitcher to have) unless it's with a bat in his hands.
No Subsitute for the Real RHM
