1-6 is a legit murderer's row, and last season that would have extended to Valaika as well. There's some serious talent in this squad.

Now 4-0 Billings after a 3-run shot by C Yovan Gonzalez.

There's a Lucas O'Rear sighting (from the back, of course). He started for the AZL Reds and has pitched a scoreless first.

Josh Smith was the starting pitcher in the All-Star game for the East team. Really, really nice for a guy who was taken after the 20th round a year ago.

I could be wrong, but I look for Lohman to hit very well with Billings.

Gerson will be interesting to watch. More of a pitch to contact guy, not a big prospect, but at some point they might consider flipping Gerson and Robles if Robles is not able to get it going.

Robert Maddox is another guy I think is interesting on the Billings club. Also, the catcher there, Yovan Gonzalez, is a guy I have heard is a very good defender. Lets see how he hits. If they can get the Tarheel signed eventually, he will probably go there too.

You could also be right about Lohman. He's 3 for 3 tonight with a HR. And Gonzalez had 5 RBIs. It's 11-0 Billings in the sixth, behind Gerson.

It's 17-1, Billings, and Junior Arias has one strange line: 5 AB, 3 R, 0 H, 0 BB, 1 RBI.

My man Carlos Sanchez hit a 3-run HR in the sixth and the AZL Reds scored 5 to pull even, 6-6.

Homer is still not right. If he goes back up and pitches like he has in his last 2 starts with Louisville, he's going to get shelled.

Brandon Dailey is 3 for 4 and the AZL Reds now lead 7-6 after seven.

Look at Leake's and Cueto's numbers down there.

I saw Cueto and Leake down here. What does that have to do with Homer not being right?

I saw two infield singles and two perfectly placed texas leaguer bloop hits and only one hard hit ball off of Homer Bailey last night. If he was walking guys and getting hit hard with extra base hits, then I'd be worried.

When Chapman comes back up, the Reds need to seriously can the whole 'Cuban Missile' and '105' scoreboard graphics crap. That makes the Reds look silly and I think can get in Chapman's head.

I watched him pitch.

Throwing strikes, getting swings and mises, not walking guys.

Hits were all bleeders except one.

He was fine, you are just looking at the box score which can be very deceiving.

He had 12 GB's to 1 FB.

Agreed. Rein in the marketing department.

Do you realize Pawtucket, who is one of the weaker hitting teams in the league, hit over .300 off Bailey? Homer has been way too hittable and when he is on his game, he is not that hittable.

Despite this, he's likely starting Sunday for Cincy.

And it sounds as if he had better defense behind him on the bloop hits and infield hits, everyone would be talking about how good he looked.
