Minor League Philosophy Bill Lack 05/09/2005 1 The DDN has an article on the Reds minor league pitching philosophy. Share this:TweetPocket One Response celing 05/09/2005 This is off-topic… Has anyone seen the Mother’s Day article on Joe Valentine and his moms? It certainly made me like him a little bit more, because now he’s more a person to me than just a pitcher who has given up a bunch of runs…but the real story is he photograph from his days on Team USA. He’s got the exact same burned-in deer-in-the-headlights look that has been giving everyone nightmares from his Reds headshot. I was astonished – I thought his Reds photo just caught him at a bad moment. Does he look like that all the time?
