View Full Version : Jay Bruce to start in Louisville?

It sure sounds that way.

Louisville looking Sweet: Louisville Bats manager Rick Sweet didn't hesitate to point out his club will have good pitching.

Bobby Livingston, who challenged Matt Belisle and Kirk Saarloos for the Reds' fifth-starter job, will be at the top of Sweet's rotation.

Homer Bailey, Cincinnati's first choice in the 2004 First-Year Player Draft, will be in the rotation along with Mike Gosling and Phil Dumatrait. The fifth starter at Louisville, like the Reds, is still undetermined.

"The Reds have another move to make," Sweet said. "If they trade a pitcher or two, then Tom Shearn will start."

Shearn is a graduate of Briggs High School in Columbus, Ohio.

"We are going to be solid defensively," Sweet said. "We will be strong up the middle. We have three outfielders who can play center field."

Bubba Crosby, Jay Bruce, the Reds' first draft choice in 2005, and Tyrell Godwin are the trio.

Krivsky is going to let him skip high A and AA? He must ALOT closer then we all expected.

Good luck to AAA pitchers getting Votto and Bruce out.

Jay Bruce LAUGHS at the minor league system.

This has to be an error. I'd be shocked.

same here, i think he should start in double a however.

I don't think so. Notice the comment about Bruce isn't a quote from Sweet, but from the author.

Has to be an error. Jay has been spending his spring with AAA surely, but he will be starting in Sarasota or Chattanooga. This is a quote from Terry Reynolds

“My guess is he probably would start in Sarasota, but don’t hold me to that,” Reds farm director Terry Reynolds said Wednesday. “He’s done everything a player can do here to earn a chance to start in Chattanooga.”

Actually I thought the interesting part of that article was the trade talk

I'm tempted to take a road trip to Louisville....

The "3rd centerfielder" is probably Dickerson.

03-31-2007, 05:53 PM
Dickerson is slated in Chattanooga, at least according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press article that they put out 2 days ago.

I'm thinking they meant Dewayne.
