Bailey's control was good for 1 batter. Then it looked like he was overthrowing and couldn't hit his spots with the FB.

Jay Bruce flew out to the left center warning track in his at bat.

Dayton plays in about 2 minutes on Channel 99 for those with Time Warner Cable in Cincinnati.

Bailey had some better control that inning, getting 2 outs to Jay Bruce in CF and a grounder to 2B.

Scott Carroll takes the mound for Dayton, Ramon Ramirez for Chattanooga and Jordan Smith is on the mound for Sarasota.

Two run homer for Todd Frazier.


Chattanooga by the time the Short-seaon leagues start (or soon after). Louisville by next Spring ande a competing for a corner OF spot by June next year if AD is not re-upped?

They need to find a defensive position for Frazier. After some LF starts, he's now at 3B for the second game in a row with Francisco out for whatever reason.

Mesoraco just gunned a guy out stealing... but Cozart lost the ball making the tag.

Mesoraco has a cannon, but I think he seems a little slow in catching then jumping up to make the throw. He will need to work on that. He does square up very well though.

Rosales has continued his strong month of May, he is 1-3 with a double in game 2. In May he is hitting .311/.415/.456 after a terrible April.

Went to the doubleheader in Louisville tonight, and left at the top of the 4th in the second game.

-Bailey lacked control, though the hits he gave up weren't crushed. He settled down in the 4th and 5th innings, which was nice because IIRC Brower was warming up in the bullpen in the 3rd or 4th inning. Glad to see him get out of those innings.

- Bruce and Dickerson mis-communicated on a fly ball in the first game of the DH, in which Bruce was in CF and Dickerson in RF. Thought either one of them should have got it.

- The first game ABs for Bruce weren't very good as he was terribly fooled on an off-speed pitch on his K.

- I definitely wanted to stay for some of the second game because Kei Igawa started for the Yankees. He struck out Dickerson and newly arrived Phillips on some nasty off speed pitches.

- Bruce's HR off Igawa was very nice because handled the pitch very well. I don't know if he was sitting on something or not, but he was ready for it.

- Mallett pitched well for the time that I was there. Consistently threw 91-93 while touching 89 and 90 at times. I think I only saw him throw one off-speed pitch at 83mph. Seemed like he was throwing straight fastballs the entire game.

Overall, the first game was blah because of Bailey's performance, but the second game was nice seeing Bruce and Rosales get 2 hits a piece while I was there. Igawa had his own personal translator with him while he was warming up.


Oh, btw, Jay Bruce's HR and single were both off of a lefty. He also added a stolen base and has scored twice.

Yeah, off Kei Igawa. Igawa was looking pretty nice with his off-speed stuff tonight.

Me too. I'm very confident he could handle AA pitching right now. I'd like to see him get plenty of atbats in AA this year and set it up to where he can begin next season in Louisville and possibly reach the majors in middle of the 2009 season.

Yeah he is the type of guy we need to push up "hard".

I seriously see him as a guy who, once he gets pushed up will continue to hit in AA moved to AAA continue hitting there, getting a September call up and either being the new LF in 2009 or 1b with Votto moving to LF, however they seem fit.

You should see how wild that cannon can get

A few weeks ago I was watching him during a catch and throw drill during BP that was being watched over by Donnie Scott and he threw 4-5 balls in a row into CF

And a couple throws later he couldn't even get the ball to 2nd
