Couple quick thoughts:

1. Why isn't Stubbs OR Heisey leading off? That's just annoying.
2. Neftali Soto is starting to heat up.
3. Billy Hamilton is quickly becoming one of my favorite prospects. I wonder if he'll get to Billings this year.

While Duran had an 0'fer, it's good to see him and Y.R. both taking BB's. And Hamilton is def. going to be fun to watch growing in the system :thumbup:

Yep. The hits are falling in for Duran yet but he's showing some solid plate discipline for a 17-year old.

That's awfully kind for a guy with 6 Ks in 14 ABs.

Not that I don't think Duran will get it going.

Michael Konstanty has an early triple today. After missing the first couple months of the season (anybody know why?), he has had a very good start at Dayton. He also showed a little thump last year in Billings. Anybody have a sense of his upside?

I'd like to see Horst back in Carolina replacing Wood/Stewart when they go to Louisville. He turns 24 this year, so it's getting to the point where we need to see what he can do. Fairel should go to Sarasota to replace Horst in their rotation.

Francisco is back in the Mudcats' line up. He played last night too but I hadn't noticed.

I'm not sure if it has been mentioned but Denove is on the DL. The wily Brian Peterson is on the Carolina roster.

Carolina is down 2-0 in the 6th with Wood pitching

Billings is up 3-2 in the 3rd

The all star break is Jul 12-14. I think they should wait till then. (the fact they come to Jax the week before is purely coincidental)

It's not that he missed the first couple months--he was just in extended spring training since he didn't make the Dayton roster out of spring training.

Weird stat. He has 5 triples in his short career. So he's fast right? He has one steal on one attempt. This year so far, he has 3 triples and no doubles.

No, he's not fast. 'Fast for his size' is possible, but I'd infer that it has more to do with his power combined with opposing defenses and stadiums. In the MWL, even Javier Valentin managed to have five triples in just 383 at-bats.

Odd. You'd think that if he didn't make the Dayton roster out of spring training, they'd have placed him in Billings. Instead, they put him in Dayton anyway (after a few games with Sarasota), and he appears to be one of the Dragons' better hitters. I wonder if they thought he needed an adjustment that required the extended stay. If that's the case, the adjustment seems, at first blush, to have been successful.

Anyway, thanks.

I suppose this could be another factor: Coming out of spring training, the Reds seemed really geeked about Humberto Sosa. When the Dayton season started, he was hitting cleanup and playing a lot of first base (I believe). In that case, maybe they felt that Konstanty would be better served in extended spring than sitting on the Dayton bench. Now Sosa's back in Billings . . .
