School of Roch: Final thoughts on 14-9 victory
Buck on Reimold's demotion: "I didn't get to see the guy (last season) that I saw this spring, and I can see why he's so well thought of. He's probably in the best physical shape that he's been in in a while, running probably better than he ever has. And I thought other than early on, getting used to spring training, he showed that he could play defense. Right-handed power. I'm glad that he's ours. Not only for depth this year, but I think the future bodes well for him. I like where he is right now." Not gonna lie, I clipped this just so you guys could make "best shape of his life!" jokes.
