It is good news to see Buck back on the hill. Given the strides other pitchers in the minors have made in the last six weeks, it would be icing on the cake if buck can pitch healthy and with command from here to the end of the season.

Lecure with 2Ks in the first. 0-0 after 1.

Lecure has a nice K/BB in Louisville, but the home runs have been a thorn in his side. If he can cut down on the homers he may develop into a solid back-end starter. He may also end up in the bullpen. I saw him come out of the bullpen in a ST game against the Phillies throwing absolute gas. He had to be throwing 94/95.

Agree that Lecure can possibly contribute at the major league level. He had some great stretches at AA ball and hopefully is getting on track at AAA now. He's another name to add to the stable of possible major league starters at AAA and AA, a pretty good group.

LeCure gives up his league leading 13th HR

3-0 Clippers

I understand Lecure's positives as described by OBM and KC, but its not adding up to good results for him. He's giving up a lot of HR and turned 25 in May. While 25 isn't old, for a RH pitcher its getting past prospect time. With 40 man roster spots somewhat being scarce at this point, I think he's in danger of an outright assignment and exposure to waivers at some point. If the Reds decide not to punt on Lincoln, there is only a Bray trip to the 60 day DL standing between Lecure and the 40 man bubble IMO. Since the Reds are likely to add someone from outside the organization (through a trade) or within (Stubbs, Frazier, etc) at some point, Lecure's time with the organization may just be dwindlng.

Ok just like Alonso, Heisey has now proved long enough that he deserves the promotion. Of course they dont have a place for him up there really though.

I don't see why he should be blocked. The reds simply need to decide who they prefer between Darnell McDonald and Norris Hopper and let the other player catch on somewhere where they might have a better shot at making a major league roster.

GOYA
06-14-2009, 08:21 PM
I don't think ANYONE will be sent up from Carolina until the first half of the Southern League season is over. Or if Carolina is eliminated, the call ups could begin. Either way, it won't be long.

And now he steals third base. He's 22-for-26 in the SB department. He started the season out 0-for-2 but is 22 for his last 24.

Glad they're letting him run a lot more. His speed is a weapon that should help increase his productivity when he makes the majors.

Stubbs has proven me completely wrong -- I thought he'd have a tough time sustaining a high OBP with his strikeouts and low power numbers, but he's managed to continue walking at a decent clip (averaging 1 BB per 8 PAs) and maintain his BA at ~.300.

I think he's just about ready to take the next step.

Pedro Viola has allowed 10 runs in 25.1 innings this season (3.55 ERA). Eight of those 10 runs came in one inning spanning two appearances. He's allowed just two runs in those other 24.1 innings. He's very hard to hit (15 hits, 30 K's in 25.1 IP), he just needs to cut down on the walks (17). If/when he does, he has the stuff to be a dominant lefty out of the bullpen.

Stubbs is ready.

He is, and so is Dickerson and one of them should be manning CF in the big leagues. I would rather Stubbs continue to get regular at bats in Triple A for a few more weeks while Dickerson mans CF on the parent club. If Dickerson should raise he trade value he should then be shopped and Stubbs callued up with Heisey replacing him in AAA.
We are deep with outfield talent and need to turn that into pitching and addressing the left side of the infield.

A not-so-common ending in the Carolina win over West Tennessee today. Heading into the bottom of the ninth with a two-run lead, Ramon Geronimo loads the bases with one out on a single, a double and an intentional walk. He then walks the next batter as well, cutting the Mudcats' lead in half. The following West Tennessee batsman proceeds to lift a fly ball to left field. Frazier hauls it in and then guns down a runner at the plate. A 7-2 double play preserves the victory. Nice.

06-15-2009, 09:42 AM
Just was looking at the stats. Wood pitched another great game 6 innings 6 K's ERA now 1.38. Ondrusek still hasn't given up a run in Carolina. Manuel was great again in Louisville.

Coddington is now batting .295 at Dayton and Bour is at .283 in Sarasota. Knowing Hernandez contract is up at the end of this year and the Reds probably won't want him at 8+ million next shouldn't they be pushing these kids.

Yeah, Lecure for Zimmerman. That's one of the things Walt "should do." (Only slightly less realistic trades are proposed over on the ORG all the time, mostly involving all kinds of talents and/or prospects to be gotten for Arroyo).

No way you're getting Guzman for Lecure. I assumed GOYA was being ironic in earlier post. As for Zimmerman, Cueto would, IMHO, be the only one on our club that Washington would even be interested in discussing for him.

Guzman is definitely a big ticket item. I was thinking a package of pitching. We can shed some real talent and still have some left over. I'd seriously think about including Roenicke. I think Manuel and Viola will top out above him.

But NOT Cueto.

Guzman's $8 mil salary is not too bad either.
