Me either. He was pitching well as a starter. Unless they're trying to limit his innings, I would keep him starting until he proves he can't handle it.

Mesoraco entered the game as a pinch-hitter and walked.

I think it is. They're starting to limit Leake now. Chapman is in the pen now. This is about the time Stewart went to the pen in 08.

That would explain a lot. I'm hoping it is just because I didnt see any reason to why the move would happen. He was pitching pretty darn well.

Dayton won 15-10. Four hits for Henry Rodriguez, three for Thomas Nurre. Home runs for Cameron Satterwhite and Frank Pfister. Two doubles for Alexis Oliveras. Two hits with a triple for Mark Fleury. We won't discuss the pitchers.

Pedro Villarreal also seems to be in the pen now. He finished the game tonight after taking the loss in extra innings a few nights ago.

I frankly think it's a pretty good strategy. Not only does it save arms, but it gives these guys some versatility and another chance to distinguish themselves.

Honestly, how long do you guys think it will be before Dusty is in Walt's office advocating that Heisey really needs to go to AAA to get at bats everyday? Saying the Reds could use a veteran outfielder in his role.

Think about this, right now I absolutly believe the Reds are one outfielder injury away from GMJ getting significant playing time.

See, this is the problem with signing guys like GMJ. Once he gets promoted, and if he hits at AAA (which a MLB veteran can even though he can no longer hit MLB pitching) he will, then Dusty will not use him as a 5 outfielder. I have every belief that if Walt promotes him Dusty will give him significant playing time in the leadoff role.

Matthews 3 for 5 again with a HR.

Well shoot, maybe the guy is going to do great, and make us all look wrong. Fine with me as long as he does very well...........I wonder how Stubbs will do as a pinch runner?

GMJ has had one good year in his career when he had an OBP of 371..other than that he is absolute trash.

He has NEVER and I repeat NEVER had over 80 rbi in his career and people talk about him like he's an all star.

I understand your concerns.

The thing to be worried about, is that Matthews might do well in AAA, get called up, look decent against bad teams in August - September, and then end up being the starting CF next year and do lousy, while they will wait half a season or more with him leading off and in CF while we as fans have to suffer through it.

Not my place or for me to say anything, but, you might want to be careful with labeling anyone or player “trash” on this board, admins. Often don’t appreciate that.

Ismael Guillon has thrown four scoreless innings of relief for the ASL Reds, who trail 3-2. Kyle Lotzkar didn't have a particularly good start--except that, at this point, you might say that every start for Lotzkar is a good one.

With a single and double so far tonight, Dominic D'Anna is batting .583. He's a left-handed-hitting first baseman who was drafted in the 31st round out of Cal State-Northridge.

Not sure who, but someone on here keeps ripping on the guy.

Everytime I look, he is killing the ball.

If you're referring to the thread when someone compared Satterwhite to Jay Bruce, then the ripping was justified. Satterwhite can hit, but to compare him to Bruce is way off.

My opinion of Satterwhite will be jaded until I see him in person again. On Father's Day, he hit a very high pop fly to right field. The right fielder dropped it, and Satterwhite ended up on 1st base...which was totally inexcusable. The next batter ripped a base hit to right, and Satterwhite was thrown out trying to go 1st to 3rd. Maybe it was a momentary lapse, but I'm reserving judgment until I see another Dragons' game soon.

Well, I for one am rooting for him. He's with the Reds now, if he plays well he could help the club. I know he's stunk it up in the past, but he does have some tools to work with. I just can't wish ill will on a Reds player.

I went to the last two Bats-Tides games and maybe it was the heat (temps around 100) and they just wanted out of there, but the Bats were hacktastic. If they were a football player, they'd be Hacksaw Reynolds. If they were a band, they'd be the Hackensaw Boys. You get the point.

Frazier had a couple big bombs, which was nice to see.

Francisco looked awful. I might be wrong, but I could swear he swung at the first pitch in every single at-bat.

Delgado did a nice job last night and Fisher pitched 2 strong innings of relief, with no hits, no walks, and 3 Ks.

I was hoping to see Chapman and/or Volquez while the Bats were in Norfolk but alas, it was not to be.

You're probably talking about me; I never said he stunk, though. I simply said he'll have to make big adjustments if he's ever going to advance through the organization because his plate approach won't translate well in the upper leagues. I compared him to a less-skilled Juan Francisco.
