Reds lose a good one

Mike Vassallo, the Reds assistant media relations director and favorite target of Marty Brennaman's abuse, is moving on.

The Milwaukee Brewers announced today that Vassallo has been named the club's Media Relations Director.

Prior to joining the Reds six seasons ago, Vassallo had spent three seasons in the New York Yankees Media Relations department.

A native of Long Island, N.Y., Vassallo is a 1997 graduate of the State University of New York College at Oswego. He will officially begin work with the Brewers on March 29.

After six seasons as an understudy to Rob Butcher, the best media relations director in the business, Vassallo is well-equipped to succeed in his new position.

Best of luck, Mike.
