I bet those day games in July in the DSL and the GCL are a real joy to participate in. I need a Gatorade just thinking about it.

Snowden was drafted by the Reds in the 16th round last year out of a high school in Mississippi. He's only 6'1" 150 so he'll need to add some weight but he's pitched very good since signing last June. Last year in the GCL he posted a 3.51 ERA in 25.2 innings with a 5 BB/30 K ratio and so far this year has a 0.90 ERA and 4 BB/16 K ratio in 20 innings. And he's a lefty which is always a plus.

I will be taking in the Chattanooga game via the internet. Been about a week since I have listened to Larry Ward. I am convinced that he is better than a lot of major league announcers.

Nice start so far for Jordan Smith against a tough lineup. I still think his future is as a power armed reliever in the major leagues.

The DSL Reds won 9-6.

Juan Duran went 0-for-3 with two walks and his 7th stolen base. He's in a 0-for-15 slump but is still drawing a great amount of walks for a 16-year old.

Thompson has thrown 109 pitches through six innings but hit for himself in the top of the 7th. Surely they won't bring him back out for the 7th.
