:rolleyes: How many times can he rehash this same story? The horse is dead Marc...move one! How does he even find time to cover the Dragons when he's busy writing article after article about how he knows how to run a minor league system better than every other team in major league baseball?

That's great! I thought it was actually Marc Katz at first even after you said that.

Wow I knew he'd do it again but so soon is mind boggling. Like a serial killer he is striking more often now, which means he is getting more angry. Quick someone call the BAU and put a stop to this. :D

He's like a 6 year old who thinks the Dragons are in the big leagues. Then one day he will learn that they're only little boys, and it will break his heart. I hope Gapper can make it better.

Can someone explain to me how Marc Katz has a job and C Trent Rosecrans does not?

Because C Trent doesn't have the balls to stand up to the big bad farm director. It takes a special breed of sports writer to do that.

To be fair, Katz covers a low A minor league team in a small town newspaper. He does not cover the Reds. His job is to provide info and commentary for Dayton Dragon fans, not Reds fans. Imagine if the Dayton Dragons were part of the Yankee organization, and the Reds or Indians did not exist. I think we all would be mad at the Yankees for giving us bad players to watch.

The fact that he keeps writing the same article suggest to me that the readers of the DDN agree with him, and would probably like to see him keep it up.

It's only fair if it's a legitimate complaint and as far as I am concerned it's a pretty foolish notion for him to continue to harp on. It is what it is a minor league team whose job it is to develop players for their parent organization. In a few years or sooner he most likely won't have to complain as from top to bottom we should be stacked. Katz and his readers just need to be patient like everyone else and the trickle down will take effect. Just look at how the Bats have transformed over the past few years.

What's funny is he will complain now and then when they are stacked he'll have to start writing stories about players not getting deserved promotions because there is nowhere for them to go. Those stories too will be pointed at the same people with an evil eye. Katz is just a negative nelly, that is his style and it's wearing on a lot of people.

It's always something. If they don't place the top prospects there, he complains. If the top prospects go there, and get promoted follwoing good performance, he complains. The only suitable solution, per Katz, would be to have the top prospects there all year. Like a baby wants his bottle.

I could explain it but I will just leave it alone for now. Lets just say that C Trent really should have a job with that paper but doesn't because of someone pulling something they probably shouldn't have (not C Trent).

Commentary: If the Reds care about the Dragons, they’ll draft better
By Marc Katz, Staff Writer
8:48 PM Sunday, August 2, 2009

DAYTON — It’s tough to figure out if the parent Reds are trying to help or hurt the Dayton Dragons. Or better yet, if the Reds care about the Dragons.

Well, they better. In about four years, what you see here is what you’ll get there, whether it’s good or bad.

In the last three days, four pitchers have been promoted by the Reds from Dayton to Sarasota, and a real good case could be made for only one of them, Matt Fairel, who had a 2.93 ERA with the Dragons. Curtis Partch, Lance Janke and Aguido Gonzalez each had ERAs north of 4.00, and obviously weren’t mastering the Class A Midwest League, but they’ve been promoted as well.

And how about catcher Jordan Wideman with his .178 batting average going to Sarasota instead of Kevin Coddington with his .294?

“The players know what’s going on,” Dragons manager Todd Benzinger said. “I don’t think anything has to be said to them.”

Coddington’s here because he’s having a terrific season, and maybe the Reds do want the Dragons to be a little successful. It was probably a factor in why Kevyn Feiner was promoted ahead of second baseman Cody Puckett or shortstop Miguel Rojas.

At least some of the starters are able to stay in Dayton and play every day instead of moving up and having to sit out half the games.

What the Reds need to do to really help the Dragons is draft better players, augmenting those they already have.

wow. that's complete drivel. Its not even well written drivel.

They should draft better and the players should not suck. oh, and if they don't suck they should stay and not move up. and if they move up its because the Reds hate Dayton.

tool.

if the Reds sent all their rehabbing players to Dayton Katz would find a reason to complain about it.

My late grandmother had a saying about guys like this, "They'd kick if their legs were cut off."
