Hey, lefties are hitting back-to-back at 3-4. That's not supposed to happen.

Back-to-back lefties in the middle of a big 1st inning, chasing the RH starter. I wonder if a lesson could be learned from this?

Bankston was a pretty good pickup. He's a former top prospect in the Rays system. He's still only 25 years old.

Bankston walks. Taveras 5u.

I know it's only spring training, but the Phillies seem to always crush Bronson. At least Burrell is finally gone though.

Phils' 2nd: Ozuna F7. Chavez F8. Marson F7.

Reds' 2nd: Hairston K. Votto homers. Francisco L6. Gomes K.

It looks like Francisco hit another ball hard to the opposite field.

First inning: The Reds beat up on Phillies starter Andrew Carpenter, who faced six batters without recording an out. After walks by leadoff batter Willy Taveras and Jerry Hairston Jr., Joey Votto hit a rolling RBI single through the middle. Juan Francisco smoked a RBI double to left field and Jonny Gomes ripped a two-run double to thw wall in left-center field. Lefty pitcher Antonio Bastardo took over for Carpenter from there but Cincinnati sent 10 men to the plate in the inning.

Bronson Arroyo didn't have a smooth top of the first inning -- giving up two doubles and a walk. Raul Ibanez's double drove in the game's first run.

Second inning: Arroyo appeared to throwing easy and just trying to locate in the first inning. But in the second inning, he seemed to throw a little harder with some movement. The side was retired in order and Matt Maloney took over in the third. In the bottom of the second, Joey Votto lifted a solo homer the opposite way to the left field corner.

Reds' 3rd: Dickerson walks. Dickerson caught stealing. Keppinger 6-3. Hernandez 6-3.

Arroyo on his outing: "That first inning you always feel like an alien. You don't know where the ball is going to go. The second inning felt better. I felt like I was in the pocket more. But it's good to have a first inning like that. You want some pounding on your arm. I'll be sore tomorrow, which is good."

Phils' 4th: Ozuna homers. Chavez 4-3. Marson 6-3. Nice play by Hairston and nice scoop by Votto. Victorino doubles. Donald F9.

Maybe the outfielders should spend less time learning how to field bunts and more time doing things that may realistically pay dividends ... like ... learning how to avoid getting picked off first base.

To be fair, from the sounds of things, Romero has a great pickoff move. And Votto's never struck me as a poor (non-smart) baserunner.

That happened back in early December, I believe. Here are a few other AAAA players signed this off season:
Kevin Barker (re-signed)
Darnell McDonald
Humberto Cota
Wes Bankston
Jacque Jones
Laynce Nix
Daryle Ward
Luis Bolivar (re-signed)
Norris Hopper (re-signed)
Adam Pettyjohn (re-signed)
Ben Davis (but will report to GCL as a pitcher)
Aaron Fultz
Jeff Kennard
David Shafer

The Reds sure are stocked on fringe outfielders. We wouldn't want the top outfield prospects getting playing time, would we? Thanks, Walt!

Barker, Rosales, Castillo for the Reds bottom half of the 7th.

Throwing error, Barker to third, Rosales to second. (I missed how Barker got on)
Castillo k's
McDonald intentionally walked (the announcers are laughing at the IBB on McDonald)
Bolivar line drive double right at thirdbaseman & eats him up. Barker & Rosales score. 8-3 Reds
Hanigan singles to left. 10-3 Reds as McDonald & Bolivar score.

Pitching change. Man, I should do play by play more often. :O)

Ward K's
Hopper grounds out to Giles.

10-3 Redlegs after 7.

Are there particular outfield prospects that you think will sit (or not move up) because they gave minor league deals to some of these folks? Just because they're getting a look see doesn't mean they'll get playing time over prospects.

Good point. And not to mention the fact of the longer spring and the players leaving for the WBC. I've got no problem with the extra signees

Is this offense going to be so all or nothing all season?! They couldn't do anything yesterday and are very much wide awake today. That's going to make for some heart stopping games, LOL :laugh:
