Listening to the game, Wood is going to throw an inning tonight. Henry Blanco is also down there, he just got thrown out trying for an extra base. No score in the 2nd.

Johnny just continues to impress. His line so far in AA this year:

Harang, Arroyo, Bailey, and Cueto could be a formidable starting 4 down the road. How we lookin? :beerme:

Dickerson is 2-3 and has his average all the way up to .260. He's been fantastic since his first bad month in AAA.

Considering he is on the 40 man, if he continues playing well he's going to be a September callup.

I actually was at the Peoria game on Tuesday with some friends (Cubs fans) when Wood pitched. He looked decent. Topped out at 94, bur was really only throwing 91-92. Only threw 1 offspeed pitch also.

I have pics and vidoes, but I'm too lazy to post them now. I'll do it later if anyone wants to see them.

I've never been very high on Kerry Wood. When he's really on it is as good as it gets, but he's so brittle and inconsistent, he's not on it very often.

Peoria got a run in the 3rd, 1-0. Alexander Smit, the recent waiver claim, is the Dragons pitcher tonight.

i wish they would just bring Votto up...as many have posted he has nothing else to prove...hopefully after the deadline he will get his chance...if they continue to let him sit at AAA after the deadline what next?

Should have made him a reliever years ago.

He lost A TON of weight, but he still has the same old throwing motion. Throws across his body like no other.

Valaika is 3-4 with a double. Hopefully he's figuring out High A now. Jukich with another solid performance. After 3 really bad starts, he has a 1.80 ERA in his last 5 starts. And Cueto has an abysmal performance tonight

Hopefully its Bray and Dumatrait up, Saarloos down, Stanton out, Belisle to pen, Dumatrait to #5.

I'd prefer a second half rotation of...

Harang
Arroyo
Bailey/Dumatrait/Livingston

Not sure who should be 3-4-5, but whats it gonna hurt?

Yep. He strikes out a ton.

Also walks a ton and plays GREAT defense though.

Congrats on hitting for the cycle.

Well, it was not Dayton's night tonight. They got an RBI groundout by Carson Kainer in the 9th to avoid the shutout, but still lost 4-1.

Stubbs 0-4, 3K
Turner 1-3, 2B, BB
Francisco 0-4, 3K
Phipps 0-3, R, BB, K
Heisey 0-4, K
Parker 0-3, BB
Kainer 1-4, RBI, K
Rodriguez 1-4, 2K
Cozart 0-3, K

Smit 4IP, 4R, 1ER, 3BB, 1K
Donaldson 4IP, 3H, 1K

Kerry Wood struck out two and gave up one hit in one inning for those interested.

If Dickerson sticks in the majors, it'll most likely be as a 4th outfielder patrolling CF as an injury replacement or late-inning defensive substitution. In that case, I'm more worried about his defense and ability to take a quality AB in a pinch hitting role than I am his power numbers.

Though, if he can take his .750-.800 OPS north with him, he might have a shot of making it somewhere as an everyday CF.

I think his numbers are bad enough to start switching roles. He needs to be ,ved to the pen IMO. Hopefully you would see a Pelland like improvement.

Speaking of pitchers named Wood, what's the latest on Travis Wood?

Had his arm checked which showed no structrual damage just tendanitis. Believes he came back to fast the first time and will probably come back around the first of Augest.

Cooper
07-27-2007, 09:02 AM
I've seen Dickerson hit --my guess is about 50 times....I've never seen a guy more overmatched. He looked like he had no business in AA let alone AAA. Maybe i saw him at a bad time, but i was shocked he even made it out of AA.

As for Alex Smith. It's clear he has arm troubles. All you have to do is look at his overall stats. He needs to either be shut down for the rest of the year or put in the bullpen. You can't go from 14-16 K per 9 to what his current ratio is now without having some type of really bad arm problem (an adjustment to a new league would not skew his stats that much).

Patrick Bateman
07-27-2007, 11:24 AM
One advantage with Dickerson is that he actually offers the ability to play an above average CF making him a useful back-up as he can help in late inning situations.

He has hit well in AAA this season, so if he can keep his OPS in the .740-.750 range, he can be a valuable 4th OF'der, and I don't think that's really unlikely. He probably wouldn't do this right away, but given a couple years, he would be a way more useful player than guys like Hopper, Wise, Taylor, etc.

I'm a little uncomfortable with Dumatrait as a starter in the bigs because he doesn't miss bats and has unreliable control. I really think he's pretty fringe as a starter unless he can get some more velocity or become best friends with Bobby Livingston.

I'd actually initially place him as a reliever replacement for the (hopefully soon-departed) Mike Stanton and push Jon Coutlangus forward in the Unofficial Bullpen Pecking Order.
