Hello Brad Salmon
Yesterday, after designating resident French Canadian Rheal Cormier, the Reds called up Brad Salmon from Louisville. He's been in the Reds system for seven years, so hopefully he pitches well enough to stick around. The author is not sure how excited he would be about returning to Kentucky. From the Reds team site, not that the author didn't already know this already, he features a mid-90s fastball, a slider, a two-seam sinker and a split-finger fastball. And apparently, when asked, he prefers not to give up late inning leads. That's a good sign. So, welcome Kippered Salmon. Enjoy your time in Cincinnati but the author would recommend avoiding the French Canadian restaurant and recreation area at Great American. Those guys hold a grudge.
