Our intrepid manager on Adam Rosales, who’s tearing the cover off the ball recently in AAA:

Adam Rosales is hitting .387 with four home runs at Louisville. The Reds are struggling as a team as far as hitting. Is it time to consider calling up Rosales?

“Where would he play?” Baker said. “Plus, he’s down there to improve his game. Hitting is only one part. . . He’s doing what we think is best for him.

“He’ll be here. I told him to slow down the game. I don’t want him to slow but slow down the game.”
