Three Questions.

1. Why is Devin Mesoraco not playing? Isn't this like his 2nd or 3rd day off in a row.

2. I noticed Votto is off tonight as well, just a rest day?

3. Justin Turner singles on a ground ball to right fielder Michael Campbell. Drew Stubbs out at 2nd, right fielder Michael Campbell to second baseman Tom King.

How does #3 happen to a guy with speed? If it was a bloob, wouln't it say something other than "Ground Ball"?

Maybe he was going to third and got caught in a run down?

Dragons trail 3-1. Base running is not very good tonight. Stubbs rounded 2nd and they threw behind him. Heisey was just thrown out at home on a bases loaded passed ball with 2 outs. The passed ball made the count on Valaika 3-0. Turner had just walked on four straight balls.

It would be nice if Wood could start producing more consistantly over the course of the rest of the season. IMO going into the season he was our 3rd rated pitching prospect but has since been passed by the likes of the Watson's, Fisher's, and even LeCure's.

Wood had a muscle inflammation injury that has set him back. It has only been the last couple starts he has started acting like his old self.

Fisher struggling again. I think the league has caught up to him. Chance for Cueto,Lecure and Wood to repass him.

I had him the #2 guy coming into the season. The only guy to pass him up in my mind is Cueto and I have him at #3. There is something to be said about a 20 year old lefty who is still young for his level that possesses the best change up in the minor leagues already. How many 20 year old pitchers have had the ability to say they have the best 'insert any pitch' in the minor leagues? Watson has been fantastic, but he is also 22 years old and still at the same level as Travis is. Fisher is closing in and to be honest, Fisher and Watson are neck and neck right now in my mind. Lecure is next in line behind them.

i hope votto not playing tonight means he is on his way to cincinnati. having hatteberg and connine on the bench as pinch hitters would make for a deeper bench.

no score in the 6th. keppinger is 3-3 and is hitting a cool .371 this season. i think its time to bring him up and cut catro as well.

Wow, Fisher has completely collapsed. 11 hits in 5 innings make's Matt Belisle grimace.

Im thinking they need to shut him down for 2 weeks. About 3 weeks ago he was quoted as saying he had a tired arm but knew that he had to pitch through it. I think maybe the Reds need to give him some time off and let him come back strong.

I saw you make a very positive post about the farm system in the ORG last night. I'm not going to lie, it startled me a bit. ;)

I haven't seen anything about it online, and considering Dickerson isn't playing either I think it's just a day off for both. Both of them are listed on the Bats bench.

Juan Francisco is 3-for-3 tonight with a double (#15) and two singles.

Well, FCB said the system was totally barren, I told him he was wrong. That doesn't mean it is humming at full strength. To many pitchers recently have been underperforming. Lecure,Wood and now Fisher have to be on that list. Though at least Wood has a decent excuse as muscle imflammation bothers command and stamina but keeps stuff intact. Only 44 innings so far this year isn't a lot and hopefully he regains his health. Lecure has been up,down and injured.

Only Cueto has been making a move lately, Watson's push has also been stalled. Thompson is still trying to adapt to high A. The low A guys are not overly impressive and Gonzo is looking more like a bullpen conversion guy each start. Ugly work by those guys.

I have a theory, it goes like this:

Chris Valaika and Justin Turner are still in Dayton because the Reds don't want to hurt Drew Stubbs' feelings.

Thoughts?

They should both be is Sarasota. If you look at the stats of the guy's in front of them, it should be a no brainer. They are 50+ points higher in average. Valaika is 3rd in the MWL in RBI's and Turner is 4th in hits. They were both MWL all-stars. I don't know what they could waiting for.

In the bottom of 8th Jay Bruce drills a 2 run home run to straight away center. Chattanooga losing 10-5 going to top of 9 . Homer was Jay's 4th in 11 games with the Lookouts and 2 rbi's give him 12 in those 11 games , is 1-3 the homer and a walk tonight.

Big nights for some of the guys in Dayton. Drew Stubbs is 3-for-5 with three singles and a walk. Justin Turner is 2-for-3 with two singles and two walks. Chris Valaika is 1-for-3 with his 10th homerun and two walks. Juan Francisco is 4-for-5 with a double and three singles.

I would do what they did for Arroyo, push him back some days not weeks, he's got to be tested. He wont get 3 weeks at the big league level.

I try to be positive about Stubbs, but...

...he still struck out twice, got picked off 1st base, and got nailed at 2nd when he took too big of a turn.
