Francisco crushed a breaking ball. Damn Bulls announcer says it had to be 450 feet.

2-0 Bats

Hellickson's FB looks straight as an arrow. It probably isn't.

Ronald Torreyes with still another multi-hit game for the VSL Reds. He goes 3 for 4 with a walk and is hitting a crisp .403.

I'd post his slash line but nobody would believe it anyway. =)

I have noticed him playing 2b-3b-SS-LF.

Oh yeah, in roughly 150 PA he has struck out 7 times.

He has a bit of Farney him, unfortunately. He has 9 SB and 11 CS.

Cochran is the best starter that Carolina has by far. This guy is rock solid and should have more wins and would if the pen wasn't a train wreck and the guys could put a few more runs on the board for him.

When I say this, I consider Klinker a AAA pitcher already to be honest. I should say Cochran is second to Matt.

Federico Baez one out away from a Mudcats win in relief.

Cochran and Baez combine on a two hitter to beat the Suns 6-0. I wish this could be a preview of the second half.

I'm ready to pronounce Mesoraco as having passed the AA test. I view the Grandal signing with less concern each day.

Devin Mesoraco continues to impress - 2-for-4 tonight with his 16th HR (6th in 75 AB with AA Carolina) and also threw out two base stealers. As bad as I want the Reds to add a top of rotation starter, it's getting to the point where it would be very difficult to part with Mesoraco in a trade. After tonight, he's now hitting .280 with an .887 OPS in Double-A, this coming after he posted a 1.035 OPS in High-A.

muddie
06-30-2010, 11:14 PM
I'm lost on this infatuation to trade prospects. Mesoraco is a totally undefined talent at this point. Trade talk is irresponsible involving him...and others in this orgainzation.

As impressive as his hitting has been this season, his control of the running game has also been great (especially since minor league pitchers often struggle to hold on runners). Does anyone know what % of basestealers he is throwing out?

I thought I read somewhere a couple days ago that he was throwing out 49% of base stealers, and that number will go up after tonight.

Wood and Volquez are available. Why give away young talent at this point? I'm not interested in a rental at this point.

After tonight he is throwing out 51% of attempted base runners. He also has a few pick offs on the season, but those aren't an official stat that is kept track of outside of box scores.

I wouldn't call it an infatuation or irresponsible at all. The Reds have a legitimate chance this year to contend for a playoff spot. Prospects are nice and all, but the goal is to win at The Show and the easiest way to do that for a small market team (like the Reds) is via trading prospects. Speculation has circled the Reds are trying to make a trade for Cliff Lee. Alonso and Wood seem to be the names that have popped up most.

In the case of Mesoraco, I would really prefer the Reds do not include him in any trade.

Donald Lutz, who has had a nice start to his season, hit a 3-run homer in the seventh to lift Billings to a 4-3 win. Jonathan Kaskow (I wonder if that's pronounced like "cash cow" or "Eddie Kasko") was 3 for 3. Patrick Doyle and Porfirio Martinez struck out 8 in 5 innings of very good relief.

Incidentally, Lutz and Kaskow are both first basemen. It's nice to see the system getting a little production out of that position. With the general exception of Alonso, it's been kind of a black hole in recent seasons.

Another nice night for Billy Hamilton too as he went 2-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base. That's his third consecutive multi-hit game.

When is Hanigan slated to get a start behind the plate? I know he still has slight discomfort, but I imagine it has to be in the next 1 or 2 days.

Burton is being given every opportunity to get back to the Majors, but he keeps sabotaging his own chances. He seems healthy. I wonder why he's struggling. He just had 7 straight appearances, I believe where he hadn't given up a run.

Not looking for perfection from him, but the REDS are certainly looking for better than what he's doing.

Based on last year, I'd just say that his stuff has faded. His slider isn't breaking as sharp as it used to.
