Reds send Cairo out for rehab assignment

 

Cincinnati Reds utility infielder Miguel Cairo, who is on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left hamstring, wasn’t activated when eligible on Tuesday, nor was he activated on Wednesday.

The plan is to have Cairo go on a Minor League rehab assignment before he can be activated. He’ll be heading to Dayton to play for the Single-A Dragons.

Cairo was on the field early Tuesday before the Cubs game and ran the bases with no trouble.

The Reds depart Friday for a six-game road trip through Pittsburgh and Milwaukee and Cairo could join the team. He is a valuable player off the bench as a pinch-hitter and can play third, short, second and first base.

Cairo, who has been with the Reds since 2010, has a career average of .267 with 40 homers, 1,016 hits and 381 RBI’s.

What had been rumored for the past three months, came true on Wednesday.

Butler University of Indianapolis, the benchmark school of the Horizon League, will be leaving to go to the Atlantic 10 Conference beginning in the 2013-14 season.

The announcement was made by Butler president James Danko during a news conference.

The move will reunite Butler with Dayton and Xavier, who used to be members of the predecessor of the Horizon League, the Midwestern Collegiate Conference.

Butler replaces Temple in basketball. Temple will join the Big East in all sports other than football in 2013-14. Temple’s football team will begin competition in the Big East this fall.

Thomas fired by Florida International University after three seasons

Florida International University is located in Miami, Florida.

The school is a Mid-major playing in the Sun Belt Conference of NCAA Division I. The enrollment is 47,966 students.

Three years ago the athletics department came up with the idea of bringing in a name basketball coach who could lure “big-time talent to the tropical paradise of South Florida. They felt they could win.

Entering the picture was former NBA star and coach Isiah Thomas to take a risk with an unknown program.

Thomas signed a five-year deal with the school to take the job, accepting nothing in base salary for his first season but agreeing to receive almost half of any gross revenues from ticket sales, commissions collected on food and beverage concessions and sponsorships.

Three years into the agreement, FIU did not see the fruits of his labor enough to reward the final two years of his contract.

The basketball program never was able to generate the enthusiasm that the school administration and Thomas had hoped. The Panthers averaged 1,071 fans at home this season.

One of the problems is that FIU tried to schedule games at home when the NBA’s Miami Heat were on the road and sometimes that didn’t work out because game dates and times have to be mutually agreed upon by both schools and the league it plays in.

Other factors that hurt FIU, is that the University of Miami draws huge crowds and has a winning team plus, Miami being a paradise city as mentioned before, there is the beach, surfing and volleyball for people to engage in.

The Panthers schedule was tough as well playing George Mason, Oral Roberts, Maryland, Dayton, Middle Tennessee State, South Alabama and Western Kentucky.

Thomas, the Basketball Hall of Fame player, was fired last Friday with a record of 26-55. His teams never won more than 11 games in a season.

FIU has never been a basketball power. The school’s last winning season was 1999-2000, and its winning percentage of .315 since that period of time is one of the worst in college basketball, 329th out of 344 Division I men’s programs, according to STATS LLC.
