Fun fact for tonight:

Bats catcher Craig Tatum has put up nice numbers over his last 10 games.

.323/.581/.451 - 1.032 OPS

Unfortunately, your aunt Laverne could steal on his arm.

Interesting to hear this about his arm, GOYA, b/c the read on his defense has always been that he's pretty good.

My Aunt Laverne is a 60 runner on the scouting scale and has a book on everybody's move to first.;)

Maybe with Hernandez playing so much at 1B, and he and to a lesser extent, Hanigan showing a little fatugue, its time to give Tatum a cup of coffee until Votto or EdE return. He's on the 40 man roster and lord knows Castillo isn't the answer to anything. Tatum's hot and has a good defensive rep. Call him up for a couple weeks, get him 3 or 4 starts over that time frame and it may just work wonders for Hernandez and Hanigan (and maybe Tatum draws a little trade interest if he hits a bit).

He has been a pretty good receiver but both he and Castillo have a very poor rate of throwing out runners. Castillo might be a little better but he's not as good of a receiver.

Unfortunately, I don't have stats to back that up. Does anyone know of a free site that tracks defensive stats on catchers? The Baseball Cube doesn't have anything.

Tatum has thrown out only 18% this year, but last year, he caught 38%.

That HR was good timing for Heisey. His batting average had dropped below the Cobb line. Now it's back to a respectable .367.

Rick Sweet is on the Bats radio pre-game show singing the praises of Bailey's determination to improve and succeed.

He says Valaika should be back on Thursday, the 18th, in the DH role. Daryl Thompson is about ready to throw from the mound. It shouldn't be much later than Valaika for his return.

Good to hear about Thompson. More depth to faciltate a pitching deal for a bat. He needs to be a reliever.

Is Sutton a real prospect?

Benihana
06-13-2009, 08:30 PM
If he's going to remain in Louisville, I'd like to see Stubbs get some reps in the leadoff spot, as I'd imagine that's the role envisioned for him in Cincinnati. Normally it wouldn't be an issue, but I do recall him having problems with hitting out of that spot earlier in his minor league career. I'd rather see him work out those kinks, demons, or whatever you want to call them before the big league nerves set in.

GOYA
06-13-2009, 08:35 PM
Sutton is a good queston. His glove is too shaky for a MI guy and his power may not be good enough for third.

Stubbs has been in the leadoff spot. He didn't do too well. I think he should get another shot at it.

GOYA
06-13-2009, 08:39 PM
West Tenn gets 3 in the top of the 5th. Mudcats down 4-2

I thinkhe probably has a bit more pop than Kepp. Like Kepp though he can be useful if given a reserve role, just don't fall in love with him or expect him to be more than he is.

Yeah, I am not too concerned at all. Walking at a high clip, which happens to be the same clip in which he is striking out? Yeah, there is no reason to worry at all.

No.

Now if he's still at the Mendoza line by the ASB, I'll start to get concerned. As of now it hasn't even been a month. Alonso will hit, and my guess is he'll start to hit soon.

More pop and a better fielder.

He could be a very good utility player.
