Happy 4th of July !

AAA - Nice pitching matchup here. Matt Maloney (2.30) goes against Ian 'I don't need no stinkin' fielders' Snell (0.00) as Louisville visits Indianapolis at 6:00 EST.

AA - The Mudcats of Carolina will send Camilio Vazquez (5.91) to face the Tennessee Smokies at 7:15 EST. The visiting Smokies will counter with Andrew Cashner, who will be making his AA debut.

High A - Sarasota visits St. Lucie at 6:00 EST. Jeremy Horst (3.35) hopes to improve upon his 4-8 record. The homestanding Luccis will flip a coin to determine Horst's opposite number.

Low A - Dayton travels to West Michigan for a holiday tilt starting at 7:00 EST. Dayton is hoping Curtis Partch (5.67) can help stop a three-game slide. The Dragons hope to set off some fireworks against whomever it is that the Whitecaps trot out to the mound.

Rookie - Shea Snowden (7.88) hopes to hop back aboard the bobblehead express tonight as he faces A Smith (can't they be more specific? there are a bunch of Smiths playing minor league ball.) Missoula comes into Billings at 6:05EST for this holiday hoedown.

Rookie - The GCL Reds travel to GCL Red Sox and have probably already completed their Independence Day affair. It started at 10:00AM EST. As is the norm, information on Gulf Coast action seems to be disseminated on a 'need-to-know' basis. Obviously, they do not feel that anyone from Redszone needs to know at this time.

Rookie - DSL began at 10:30AM EST. The same rules that apply to the Gulf Coast League seem to apply here as well. Keep turning that brisket. Updates will eventually follow. The DSL Reds are visiting the DSL White Sox FWIW.
Computer speed + DSL = Good. Minor League updates + DSL - Bad.

Check out the numbers Brian Pearl has posted so far with Billings:

5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 11 K, 3.00 GO/FO

He was a 9th rounder but was considered a top three round talent.

IMO, yes. He should get a spring training invite with a chance at making the team.

07-04-2009, 09:53 PM
Snowden's final line: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 5 K, 8 GO/4 FO

That's what I'm talking about.

I'd ;ile to see frazier at 3B and Cozart at SS for Louisville in the next couple of weeks, hopefully, setting them up for a shot next spring.

Arias: 0-for-3 HBP
Felipe: 2-for-4 triple

Starlin Gerson: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 9 K

07-05-2009, 02:26 AM
The important cog is Cozart. If he is/will be ready to man SS for the Reds next season, then I think the Reds bite the bullet and deal w/ JHJ/Janish this year and wait for him til next year, vs going after an Escobar type guy.
