The candidates are:

Sean Henry - .309/.381/.497
Daniel Dorn - .260/.354/.533
Drew Stubbs - .296/.397/.352

On pure merit, Henry probably deserves the promotion. Yet I'd be tempted to make it Stubbs. Why? Anything he does well will be a resume enhancer and if he struggles then the Reds can pass it off as conscious overpromotion (we were just getting him a taste of AAA, so he'd know what he's in for next year).

Henry is the most deserving, though I agree with you on Stubbs. Dorn wouldn't be a bad choice either.

Dorn, He has more power and a better defensive OF than Henry. Plus this is his
2nd stint in AA. The reason Stubbs was promoted was because Henry was not
a very good CF.

I like the Stubbs idea but Henry will probably get the call. I'd like to see Henry and Dorn both get some time in AAA this year.

Where did you get the idea that Dorn is better than Henry defensively? Dorn plays LF for a reason.

Yeah, I was also under the impression Henry was a better fielder and not by a little.

I would move up Dorn. Henry wouldn't be a bad idea though either.

Might they replace Dickerson by giving Richar a look in CF?

Cut loose Mackowiak and call up Dorn and Henry.

Heisey is past due on a promotion to Chattanooga as well, so he could take one of their places (with B.J. and Stubbs).

I would hate to think that a Rob Mackowiak would hold back a Dorn, Henry, or Heisey.

I have seen 13 games this year and Dorn is a much better OF. Dorn throws to the right bases and has not committed an error. He gets great jumps on balls and is very baseball smart.Henry tries to throw every guy out, which allows runners to move up. I will say this about Henry, he plays the game at 110%. Which has it +'s and -'s. I just think Dorn has more power and is more suited for Louisville at this point in their careers. Who knows, they just might send BJ back, you never know with the Reds.

Stubbs -- he'll field his position with no problem, and seeing better pitching can only help him (either when he returns to AA next season or as his AAA stay continues).

Plus, he has the chance to pull a "small sample size success" out of nowhere and really up his value.

Sounds like me in my Wednesday night softball league.

Stubbs wouldn't be a bad choice if your looking for a CF. Heisey could fill Stubbs
shoes in Chattanooga. Heisey is neck and neck with Stubbs defensively and is probably ahead of him offensively.

I just hope Todd Frazier is promoted to AA before the end of the season. He's more than holding his own in Sarasota and I imagine he would perform well in the final month or so with Chattanooga.

Nobody should be called up.

Dickerson should stay there until the end of the AAA season where he won't miss any at-bats.

The others should stay at AA until the rest of their season to continue their growth. There's plenty of playing time left in the Winter Leagues for the AA players and AAA will be waiting for all of them next season, including Cumberland. Stubbs should begin next season in AA, no matter what.

In September, Dickerson will be sharing playing time in the Outfield in the Majors.

Agree with Buckeye. Have to give priority to getting your prospects to the level they need to be--Henry and Dorn to Louisville. Mackowiak back to Chatt. if that's what's necessary to keep him around and you're committed to that. Personally I see no reason why we'd be committed to that, especially if we're going the youth direction.

IMO it's Henry easy. Although Dorn deserves a trip as well. BTW is Dickerson actually being called up?

I like to challenge but not overwhelm hitters.

I'm confident that Stubbs is being challenged in Chattanooga, and would be overwhelmed in AAA.

Yonder Alonso?

Henry should have been promoted some time ago

Move up all 3 and get rid of some of the career minor leaguers at Louisville

Think Dickerson's pissed for not being called up?

Dickerson gets ejected tonight after the 1st AB of the game, when he got called out on strikes.

I love the passion.

Dickerson should be starting in CF for the REDS in 2009, even if it's just for one year until Stubbs gets there.
