I could've told you things were going to go wrong at some point, lol. :thumbup:

Sounds like Frazier is starting to turn a corner after good performances today and yesterday. Here's hoping his turnaround continues!

It sucks that we lost and that Logan got tagged, but for me, Todd's game was the most important fact. 2 dingers yesterday and 2 for 4 today. Considering how BADLY he's been struggling, this looks to be the beginning of him coming out of his shell. Seeing Frazier hitting in the 9 slot is beyond depressing.

Apparently, Alonso had a poor play in LF. I missed most of Ondrusek's inning and the video isn't up yet. I have a feeling it happened then.

Was anyone watching or listening in the 8th?

The winning pitcher today for the VSL Reds, with 2.2 hitless innings of closing relief in a 5-4 game, was a 16-year-old named Alejandro Chacin. The kid goes 6-foot, 200.

Zebulon, NC --- The Cincinnati Reds have made one player transaction impacting their Double-A affiliate Carolina Mudcats prior to Monday night's series finale against Chattanooga.

LHP Joe Krebs has been promoted to Triple-A Louisville, with no other corresponding move occurring. The Mudcats will play with a 23-man roster tonight.

A revised roster is attached.

DELETE: LHP Krebs, Joe (To Louisville)

Good. I'm a big Joe Krebs fan. He had a horrible start this year, but lately has been nails.

Dallas Buck has confirmed tonight what has been obvious for a while, he's garbage. He has given up four earned runs in 0.2 innings before being pulled tonight. He's been garbage for a while now. May need to look at moving him.

Sean Henry 2-2 with a BB. BA at .323 with an OPS of .861. I'd like to see him at CF in AAA with the journeyman Burke taking a lesser role.

Henry is still just 24 and has a shot to be a useful player IMO.

Turning the tables for a change, Carolina has wiped out a big deficit (5-0) to take a 9-6 lead into the ninth. Sappelt, leading off, has two doubles, a triple and a stolen base. He's now hitting .378. Homers for Costanzo (the new guy), Eymann and Kahaulelio. Now somebody has to get Chattanooga out in the bottom of the ninth.

Looks like it'll be Jordan Smith, back for his second inning . . . And he gives up a leadoff home run.

Smith leaves the tying runs on and Carolina wins 9-7.

Something that has gone fairly unnoticed (an least, unremarked upon) is the steady improvement of Jerry Gil as a pitcher. He still walks way, way too many, but in general he's no longer a disaster, by any stretch. After three innings of one-run ball tonight, his ERA is down to 4.38.

How's Cozart looking at shortstop?

If you mean releasing him. Yep. It's time. Put Smith back in the rotation and move Serrano and Harang up to AA.

Only 3 Errors in 45 games. Much closer to the way he fielded in Dayton.

Walk rate is right where it should be. Showing better baserunning. Having a very solid over all May even though he has struggled the last 10 games or so. Should be the MLB SS going into 2011 if Cabrera's numbers set the bar...

You aren't going to release Buck. Put him in the bullpen? Maybe. You don't let a guy with a good arm and a track record of success go though. Not yet.

Cozart is solid at SS. Janish is a little better but I wouldn't hesitate for a second to have Cozart's glove at SS in Cincy. His bat could use a little more seasoning but I think it'll be fine.

I agree with dougdirt--it's premature to release Buck. For crying out loud, he has an OPS of .857!

Buck's arm is probably shot.

Buck's arm is probably shot.

Stuff wise, he still has it. Still throwing in the low 90's, good slider.

70 baserunners in 40 innings with a .339 BA against does not indicate he's got good stuff.

Well that is good to hear. I thought for sure he was throwin in the mid 80's the way he has been getting hit. Maybe he just needs a little more time.. Also, I am assuming he was lifted last night because of ineffectiveness, but he only threw 30 pitches, so can anyone confirm that he is not injured?

Doesn't indicate anything about his stuff whatsoever. Says something perhaps about his control, and his pitching knowledge.

If this was some teenager they just signed out of the Dominican, you might be right. But Buck is a known quantity, at least to some of us. An advanced guy who knows how to pitch, while the aforementioned .339 BA against indicates that the problem is not walks.

I stand by what I said -- his stuff can't be good right now.

GOYA
05-25-2010, 02:34 PM
For me, even if a guy is known to be an advanced pitcher, if he has extensive time away from the game, he deserves significant time to get his stuff back together. How much time is the question.

I'm not saying he should be relegated to the pen or released. Just that I think some kind of arm surgery is a likely outcome here, if he wants to get back to being good. In 2009 they thought he was all the way back from his elbow problems/surgery, and he ended up with both elbow and shoulder problems during the season, if I recall correctly. No surgery in the offseason that I'm aware of. Now in 2010 he's having a real hard time getting outs. This guy was a real good pitcher when he was healthy, so I can't imagine his arm is fit at the moment.

Liriano in 2009 was brutal. Sometimes it takes a while for it to come back. Its an extreme example true, and I am certainly not comparing them, just sayin' is all.
