  1. Tom, what are the customary ‘next steps’ for the players after their League’s season ends? I know of Winter League and I know there are Central and South American Leagues. How much say do the players have in where they go in the ‘off season’?

  2. Two games and the minor leagus move to preparation for next year. Reds’ fans havea a lot to be excited about in the minor league system. Next year we should see that excitement growing in the upper minor league levels.
