Nuxie had an incredible collection of memorabilia. John Kiesewetter did a story on it a few years ago. Top of the line stuff. I don't know what they're auctioning off, but they'll have a lot to select from.

Does that announcement include the Frick award winner?

at 3:49 PM Blogger John Fay said...

It does not. The Frick Award is announced in Feb., or at least it was last time Nux was up.

Arbitration season opened on Saturday. Any news on the Reds' eligibles--Belisle, Coffey and Phillips?

You wouldn't think they'd want to go to the table with Phillips.

John, are the Reds doing a winter caravan this year? If so, when will it be announced?

at 10:38 AM Blogger John Fay said...

Coffey signed a two-year deal last year. He makes $950,000 in '08, I believe. Haven't heard anything on Belisle. They've been talking with Phillips. I think it's pretty imperative that they lock him up.

The Caravan will happen. I'd expect an announcement any day. It will be at the end of the January.
