I was just about to go to bed and saw a highlight on ESPN of the Dominican League. Edwin Encarnacion went 5-5 with a HR and scored 2 runs. Niiiiice! I really think this kid is gonna be a great part of the Reds.

If his defense improves this season I'll be very happy with him.

His defense will improve this season so I'll be very happy with him when he gets to balls that no one can get to.

D10 - thought i'd help with your quote.

I hope he doesn't leave his bat in Winter Ball. We are going to need it this year.

Is he playing too much baseball??? I know he is young but wouldn't you want a player your counting on for a lot of production this year take a break in the offseason? Im not saying become lazy like Kearns did a few years back but to limit the amount of grind the body takes by playing in the winter league.

Is it really that much of a physical grind for a hitter? We obviously don't want Harang throwing 70 innings every off season, but if EdE wants to play, I don't see how it could hurt him.

I saw this morning about this. If he can improve his game playing winter ball then I'd wish more players would do that to improve.
