Reds - Signed Mackowiak

Cincinnati Reds - Signed OF Rob Mackowiak to a minor-league contract.

Mackowiak was thrown to the curb about 3 weeks ago after playing poorly in a limited role with the Nats.  Most likely, he’s with the Reds to provide depth for the Louisville Bats as they were thinly manned in the outfield.  He’s not a great candidate to see much time in Cincinnati with the Reds already carrying 4 LHB outfielders and Mackowiak’s past experience in centerfield mainly being a tryout for Circus of the Stars.

This seems like a perfect candidate for the podcast.

I'm still kind of hoping to weasel out of it!

Didn't you bring it up?

Didn't you bring it up?

Yup and I'm not sure if I regret it or not!

You gave us a taste of your sonorous tones. Don't be an ear-tease.

Do you know why this was a perfect candidate for the podcast? Well, when Mackowiak was on the Pirates, for some period of time he used Missy Elliot's "One Minute Man" as his at-bat music, which is up there as one of the most inexplicable and emasculating choices of at-bat music.

Anyway, that should be the intro music for this and any other TransOr podcasts.
