The VSL Reds did a double-header today. Both games had 3-2 outcomes with one for both the VSL Reds and VSL Phillies. Here are the box scores.
Luis Gonzalez pitched another gem, but three errors in the fifth inning cost the VSL Reds the game.

In order to make things fair, the VSL had made him bat with his bat upside down. Blind Folded. Left Handed. LOL.

I wish we had more scouting information on the VSL and DSL guys, because they--especially the VSL Reds--have some very provocative pitching prospects, including all three who threw so well today. Gonzalez, for instance, is left-handed and only turned 17 in late March. He's fourth in the league in ERA. Chacin turned 17 in late June, and opponents are hitting .167 against him.

They have some good talent in the DSL as well.

Between the VSL and the DSL you'll probably see:

VSL:

Torreyes 3B/SS/LF
Valor SS/2B
Y. Lopez 1B/C
Morillo C
Gonzalez SP
Chachin RP
Mieres SP

DSL:

Sanchez 1B
Arias COF
Bueno 2B/SS
Beard SP
Caceras SP
De Los Santos SP
Ramos RP

Yeah, I heard about that. He actually managed to reach on an error, but the game summary didn't really tell the whole story. Fortunately, I have friends down there, so I'll relay what they told me.

When Torreyes stepped into the batters box, it was clear that the umpire was out to get him; he was forced to start the at-bat with an 0-2 count. Not to be intimidated, he calmly requested a time out, put on a blind fold, flipped around his bat--a toothpick mailed to him by Dusty Baker himself--switched to the other side of the batters box, and did ten head-spins as if he were about to hit a piņata.

The first pitch was a ball, but while waiting for the pitch, Torreyes managed to use his time productively by curing several types of cancer and lifting many third world nations out of poverty. It was the least he could do.

The next pitch didn't even make it to home plate on account of the ball somehow developing excessive fear. I had never heard of that, but apparently it's not uncommon for Torreyes to bring inanimate objects to life. I'll try to get more information on that at a later date.

Anyway, after the umpire gave the pitcher a new ball, Torreyes hit it so hard that it began to circle the globe. On the ball's journey, it struck a fan, killing the fan instantly. Not only did it kill the fan, it eliminated his immediate family, his extended family, and anyone who had ever met him.

But because the ball was on its way back to the field, the umpire ultimately ruled it as fan interference. This normally would result in an out, but because the ball was on fire at the time, the umpire ruled there's no way the fielder would have fielded it cleanly. Therefore, Torreyes was awarded first base. Following the game, Torreyes brought his victims back to life. Just another day at the office for Ronald Torreyes.

I hate to break it to you guys but just because hes hot on a rehab doesnt mean hes going to be some vastly improved player. Just because you really dislike Drew Stubbs it doesnt make Dickerson better. He's striking out a lot still, hes just getting a ton of hits.

Hes still the same guy.

Id be pretty worried if he wasnt tearing up AAA pitching as a 28 year old with a couple seasons of MLB playing time.

That post was supposed to be in a game thread, but yea I mean expectations of Dickerson is getting a little outrageous. if he can have a .340 OBP once his BABIP stops being near .375 he will be an asset.

that is basically only against RH pitching and a pretty improbable BABIP. I doubt he puts up that line if hes given more playing time. I think he has better LD% so hes likely going to out produce Stubbs but its probably splitting some hairs.

I don't think it is. If you platoon Dickerson in CF I could see him posting a .365/.370 OBP.

I don't think it is. If you platoon Dickerson in CF I could see him posting a .365/.370 OBP.

I would be amazed if he continued to produce at that level. I think with regular playing time he is probably more along the lines of a

.250/.340/.400 type of guy strictly playing against RH pitching. Give or take a few points in any direction. Thats probably what he is at best in my mind. I dont know if he would be much worse but thats probably the tops for him given more consistent playing time. Of course I simply dont believe he can continue to have get on base that often when he puts a ball in play. Hes fast and it helps because hes a lefty but still hes been getting a ton of what some of us call lucky behavior.

He doesn't have to be vastly improved. If he puts up what we expected of him going into the season he's still better than Nix as a left handed bat that gets some starts against righties.

Was at the game tonight and Chapman did hit 103 a few times.

The gun may have been fast, but it was consistently in the high 80's for LeCure, which I guess is about right. First ball hit off him to RF was actually hit pretty hard. Lot's of ooohs and ahhhs on every pitch. 101.....103...99....101....103....you get the picture. Pretty cool to be witness too in a stadium that had about 500-1000 left at the end.

Fisher was hitting 93-94, pretty consistently.

I was 3 rows behind the Bats dugout on the on-deck circle side and three incredibly smoking hot women came down and sat just to the right of us towards the end. I'm not kidding when I say that almost every Bat was checking them out when they came off the field after the game. It was hilarious. Not even subtle either. Even Balentian just stood there and mouthed "I'll see you after the game" and just stared at them for 5 seconds. It was kind of funny, but it surprised me a bit too. It was like they were teenagers looking at a hot girl for the first time. I don't know maybe they knew them, but it didn't seem like the young ladies were even paying attention to them.

Great night. And my 9-year old got his first foul ball thanks to a kind gentleman in our row.

One more funny story. I like this Rick Sweet guy. He was actually catching in the bullpen for Fisher or Burton and there was a controversial call at 2B on a SAC bunt attempt. I think it was when Wilken Castillo (3B) tried to get the lead runner at 2nd. Anyway, he looked out to me, but the ump calls the runner safe and then all of a sudden Sweet comes charging from the bullpen with his shin guards on and runs to 2nd base to argue. It was awesome. A few times during rally's he'd step towards the dugout from the 3B coaching box and look in the dugout and yell "C'mon" like a fired up football coach. Great stuff. I think his players really like him and get a kick out his tenacity.

Fun game. A little bit of everything.

At the moment, he looks very good. But before he got really hot, he was awful. An almost immediate difference of night and day. How that switch got turned on, I don't know. If he stays like he is now then yes, he could help the Reds. But there's something about that abrupt change that I don't trust.

Wagner Gomez, a switch-hitting catcher, hit his first homer of the year. Luis Lora gave up one run over three no-hit innings. His control has been really bad. Carlos Sanchez stayed hot by adding a couple hits.

Tim Crabbe allowed just one run through the first four innings, but then the wheels fell off. Jamie Walczak couldn't stop the bleeding and allowed seven runs (three earned) in 1.2 IP. DiDi Gregorius was the only hitless dragon. Ryan LaMarre homered (#3). Who was the poster that had a man-crush on Justin Tordi? I'd like to hear his opinion on Kevyn Feiner who homered for the seventh time in his six-year career.

Carolina managed only four hits in their 10-2 loss. Sappelt knocked in Negron both times. Lee Tabor put in another terrible performance. He had been dominant all season, but he has allowed 13 runs (10 earned) over his last five appearances spanning 9.1 innings. The Mudcats defense didn't help much today.

Billy Hamilton stole the show as well as three bases for Billings. Both he and Devin Lohman reached base three times. The Mustangs' bullpen was phenomenal, pitching four no-hit innings. Porfirio Martinez has made huge strides since last year, but sadly, he did not advance in the Minors Moniker Madness tournament. However, Didi Gregorius still has a shot.

Anyone know how hard Burton is throwing now?

Last night he was throwing low-to-mid 90s with a cutter/slider in the mid-to-high 80s. Looked very, very impressive in his two innings...

The Reds will have a very deep pen when the rosters expand.

My under-rated prospect of the day (first and last of a series) is Samuel Diaz, a 2B-SS for the AZL Reds. He's a 19-year-old switch-hitter who was promoted to Arizona after starting the season with the VSL Reds and hitting .344 with a .434 OBP. On the mainland, he's at .365 and .382. Obviously, two walks are not enough, but the kid can apparently hit. I have no idea about his defense, but it's encouraging that he has lately played more SS than before. He has 14 steals.

The DSL Reds' game was suspended in the eighth inning, tied 2-2. But not before Carlos Sanchez added two hits (including a 2B) to raise his average to .365 and his OBP to .457.

And another good start for the inscrutable Eliezer Beard: 6.2 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K. His ERA is now 1.32. He's 19, 6-foot-4, 202 pounds. And he doesn't strike out very many.

Edit: Whoops. Should have put this in the Wednesday thread.
