From the Enquirer, a little new Kearns information.
O’Brien would not say how long Kearns will be down, but getting his hitting stroke in order is only one part of the equation.
The Reds weren’t happy with the shape Kearns is in. He was playing at 255 pounds when optioned.
Asked if the club wanted Kearns to improve his conditioning, O’Brien said: “There’s certain elements to the overall program that I would just as soon not comment on. Let’s just say it is a diverse program, covering quite a few components.”
First I’d heard of this. Is it true or is it just a reason to leave him at Louisville?
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
