Dallas Buck begins the bottom of the 4th inning with a strikeout. The next batter doubles to break up the perfect game but Buck gets two ground outs to end the inning.

I'm gonna call him the Worm Burner.

It's a nickname my family has developed for a cornhole shot that is fast and designed to knock in other bags on the board in one shot.

Yeah, we're weird.

Hitting isn't a concern with him, its his defense and everything that comes with that. Those things I am not privy to. I would start him in Sarasota though without question based on his offense.

On a minor league roster, there is an active list (anywhere from 24-35 players, depending on the league) and a reserve list (the players who aren't on the active list which can total up to 35-38 players, depending on the league).

How has Richar looked so far?

Hopefully he is starting to settle into his surroundings he hasn't seemed to do much yet just yet but that's me peeking in at these minor league updates. This is the 1st game I have seen him do what I would deem good.

Seriously, Francisco's just irritating. The guys a power monster with a sub .300 OBP. We should hire Tom Shearn to throw him pitches all winter and never let him swing. Just feelin' a rant there...sorry.

How Danny Herrera remains in AAA is a complete mystery to me. Of course this is the same organization that called on Homer Bailey for eight starts before Matt Maloney got one, so who knows.

Mace Thurman had another good outing in Dayton tonight: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4. In his first outing with Dayton he was awful as he allowed four runs without recording a single out. Since then spanning two appearances he has thrown 7.1 innings of two hit ball while posting a 0 BB/11 K ratio. Thurman is beginning to look like another great find in the later rounds. IIRC he was signed over slot also so obviously the Reds like his arm.

I said something earlier this year that the Reds should really institute Dano's take the first pitch rule with this kid. I like your idea as well.

Aguido Gonzalez may have given up his first ER of the year but he showed some serious guts. With the tying run at third and the winning run at second and 5,000 fans screaming, he struck out the #4 hitter and the #5 hitter in the opposing lineup with 93 mph fastballs to end the game. That is what it is all about. Can you get it done when everything is on the line? He found a way to get it done. That's a guy you want. A lot of guys can go out there and pitch when there is no pressure, but when you've got the whole game on your shoulders and you reach back and find something extra, you go beyond your stats.

Wow. Umm...no. How does hitting from behind in the count help anything? What we should be doing is making sure he's working on his timing in the on-deck circle to get a feel for the pitcher (lots of hitters only use the on-deck circle to get loose instead of getting the pitcher's timing down too) and get him more work in the cage at pitches he has trouble handling. Automatically taking a pitch is bad in every case I can think of. What we need to do with players struggling with thier "eye" is to install an "umpire" (a coach or even having a catcher make the calls as they catch) during batting practice so they can get the calls on the pitches they're not sure about and have it be in a non-game situation. Batting practice has become more of a swing mechanic session than it is about the whole practice of hitting...which means laying off bad balls. Part of that also falls on the shoulders of the guy throwing batting practice. Throw some OUT of the zone too.

Taking the first pitch seemed to work for guys like Ted Williams and Ricky Henderson pretty well.
