Nuxhall book

Shameless plug:

The Enquirer has produced a tribute to Joe Nuxhall in the form of a 128-page hardbound book that chronicles Nuxhall’s playing and broadcasting careers and celebrates his life as a humanitarian and integral part of the Greater Cincinnati community. “Joe Nuxhall: The Life, Legacy and Words of a Cincinnati Icon” includes hundreds of photos from The Enquirer archives and the Nuxhall family, Enquirer articles from over the years, cartoons from Pulitzer Prize-winning artist Jim Borgman and a special DVD featuring personal interviews with Joe, provided by CET Cincinnati Public Television. The book is available now for the presale price of $24.95. It will retail for $34.95 starting April 3. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Joe Nuxhall Character Education Fund. You can order online at www.nuxhallbook.com.

John --

Looking forward to the Nuxie Book. No doubt a must read for all Reds fans.

I know this doesn't pertain to this blog entry but could you possibly rank the "stuff" of the young pitchers you've now seen and that the rest of us not in sunny Florida haven't. Specifically for the starting prospects. And if you could relate that to current starters Harang and Arroyo it would probably help to give the rest of us a reference point.

If I had to guess from the descriptions in other blog entries it sounds as if it might look like this:


Also if it were solely up to you and economics played no part in it who would be in your starting rotation for the Reds?

There's a long way to go. But Cueto would be in it.
