Votto in LF tonight.

Keppinger 1B
Lopez SS
Votto LF
Bellhorn 2B
Wise RF
Bannon 3B
Gutierrez DH
Dickerson CF
Jorgesen C

Rick Sweet really confuses me. Last night he had Dickerson in RF and Wise in CF, and today he flips them. He bats Dickerson behind the likes of Bellhorn, Wise, and Gutierrez.

Dumatrait on the mound.

Dayton jumps out to a 1-0 lead after 1. Stubbs reaches on an error and scores on a base knock by Francisco.

Drew Anderson got picked off the pitch before on the full count he took off running a little to soon.

That triple is Bruce's 55th XBH of the year in only 324 atbats. That's an average of one XBH per 5.9 atbats. That, folks, is amazing.

Sarasota is playing a doubleheader tonight. Chris Valaika went 0-for-4 in game one which was his FSL debut. He's 1-for-2 with a RBI single so far in game two.

Daryl Thompson started earlier today and only pitched to five batters. Any news on that?

He actually started yesterday. The game was suspended with 1 out left in the second inning. It was started today from that point, so the rain stopped him.

At this rate Jay Bruce may be in AAA by the end of August, and who knows- he could even stick with the Reds in ST next year (especially if Dunn and/or Griff is traded)

I have thought about that, but the only way I see Jay in Cincinnati next April is if both Griffey and Dunn are traded. The Reds will likely go Freel/Hamilton/Griffey or Dunn depending on who is around still next season.

I think they see Freel as a utility guy from here on out. Just a guess, but I think his days as a starter are over. After the concussion, I think the Reds will opt for a role that may keep him healthier -- playing frequently in a reserve role but not every day.

Unless someone can identify a part of his game that needs work, I see no reason why Bruce should be held back. Move him up to AAA at some point this year. Perhaps for August. Then let him go to spring training as the presumptive left or right fielder.

Of course, if Dunn, Hamilton, Griffey are all still around this won't happen. But if one leaves, the logical thing to do is to get Bruce in the slot right away. I don't see them using trade bait or money to get an outfielder. I think putting Bruce in there, even a bit early, makes more sense.

Bruce walks in his second at bat.

Bruce has now walked in five consecutive games.

BearcatShane
07-05-2007, 09:29 PM
If Bruce Keeps hitting at this pace for the next 3-4 weeks, and I think he is definately capable of that I think he could be promoted to Louisville for the rest of the season and if he hits like .330 up there I think he'll be invited to spring training and if he hits well there I could see him making the team. I think they should start thinking about this possibility now and trade Dunn and if they are really serious about this, trade Griffey this offseason, sign a left fielder and put Bruce in right.

Dickerson is 2-4 today and has his average all the way up to .256. He did strikeout for the 99th time.

Also, I'd hate to think Freel blocks Bruce from getting to the majors. Freel has been nothing short of bad this year, and has proven once again he can't play everyday.

Aronchis
07-05-2007, 09:45 PM
It isn't likely to promote Bruce with only 2 months left in the minor league season. Unless it was up to the majors like Adam Dunn, might as well build him up in AA and have him full of confidence for next spring.

Nice stat-builder game for the Dragons' offense. I'll let reds44 do the rundown, because it's too hard to show who did what in that game.

Dragons ended up winning 20-3, and every single hitter had at least one hit (except Stubbs...though he had 3 walks, scored 4 runs, and had 2 stolen bases). Heisey with another HR late in the game along with another hit and 3 walks, and Cozart was on base with 1 hit and 3 walks.

Billings is winning 10-8 in the 5th inning. Brandon Waring is 2-for-2 with a single, homerun (#3), and a walk.

OnBaseMachine
07-05-2007, 11:38 PM
It's now 12-10 Billings after five innings. Waring is now 3-for-3 with a double, homerun, single, and walk. He only needs a triple for the cycle. Through 76 professional atbats, Waring is hitting .323/.421/.569 - .990 OPS. That Billings offense is tough, but will only get better when Blake Stouffer signs and is ready to play. I also look for Nefi Soto to finish the season in Billings.

Billings is tied 14-14 in the 9th. The box hasn't updated for a while.
