If you're a real Reds fan you would pay attention no matter who is or not playing. That's usually what a "fan" means...

By the way, a real fan tunes in even on off days. :D So I will be tuning in tomorrow.

I'll be a broken record, this team doesn't have the pitching to get them through the second half in first place. These guys have been challenged for quality starters with Matt Fairel gone all year and Jordan Hotchkiss being MIA most all season with injury issues.

Ok, I will let you get back to nicknaming the mudcats during play by play. Have a good one.

On another note, hopefully Wood can get back in a groove tonight for the Bats. Still have high hopes for him in the Reds future plans.

It's their own nick names, what people call them. I don't make up stuff.

James Aducci has stolen 12 bases this year for Tennessee, nine of which have come against Carolina. Brutal... Smokies up 5-2 in the bottom of the second and still batting.

muddie
07-24-2011, 06:04 PM
Bottom of third, Tennessee up 6-2. McCulloch threw 50 pitches through the first two innings.

muddie
07-24-2011, 06:13 PM
At the end of three innings the Smokies are up 7-2. McCulloch has thrown 68 pitches. The Smokies have 10 hits to Carolina's two. Both Mudcat hits are solo homers.

I don't understand not starting Soto with tomorrow off.

muddie
07-24-2011, 06:21 PM
Clayton Shunick in for his seventh AA appearance as McCulloch's night is done. Headed to the bottom of the fourth.

muddie
07-24-2011, 06:27 PM
Smokies pick up another run in this half of the inning to lead 8-2. Headed to the fifth.

muddie
07-24-2011, 06:30 PM
Louisville down early 1-0. Denis Phipps gets his first start in Louisville. He's 0-1 in the #2 spot.

cinreds21
07-24-2011, 06:33 PM
Bats are a player short so I assume a move will be made after the game.

muddie
07-24-2011, 06:41 PM
Middle of five the score is unchanged in Tennessee. Smokies continue to lead, 8-2. This is the rubber game of a five game series of which the Mudcats won the first two. Tennessee won the first half of this division.

muddie

Middle of six, Smokies continue to lead, 8-2. Carolina has been out hit 12-3. Kevin Rhoderick pitched a solid sixth for Tennessee after getting rocked by Carolina earlier in this series.

Not really many choices other than Castro.

Been in AA for what seems like forever. Plays 3 spots. Seems like a good fit.

Tim Hamulack on to pitch for Carolina to start the bottom of the 7th.

You're probably right. I recall Jake in Chattanooga when we were out there earlier this year...he gave a kid a bat over the dugout and the kid was blown away. I don't belive the kid had a clue. Jake just picked him out of the crowd and called him down. He gave him the bat. After the game Jake called the kid down and then signed the bat for him. The kid was awestruck. Love to see guys like him get a call to AAA.

Through six innings the Bats are without a hit. Charlotte up 1-0 through six on three hits.

muddie
07-24-2011, 07:30 PM
Lastings Milledge homers for Charlotte to put the Knights up 2-0. Matt Maloney on for the Bats. Travis Wood threw 87 pitches.

muddie
07-24-2011, 07:35 PM
After Hamulack went one inning, Justin Freeman is on for the bottom of the 8th.

muddie
07-24-2011, 07:40 PM
James Adduci gets his fourth hit of the day and the Smokies 15th knock.

End of perfection with a walk to Hermida.

Mudcats lose to Tennessee 8-3. The teams played each other 26 times this season and the Smokies won 18 games to Carolina's eight wins. Carolina is off tomorrow night and will play a doubleheader on Tuesday against the Marlins' Jacksonville team. Pedro Villarreal will pitch the opener on Tuesday.

Felix Perez did manage to push his hit streak to 14 games.

muddie
07-24-2011, 08:02 PM
End of eight in Louisville. The Bats have manged two hits to spoil the no-no. Charlotte up 2-0.

muddie
07-24-2011, 08:08 PM
Travis Wood went five innings and struck out nine. He only gave up three hits...very good outing. Maloney works four innings of relief. Headed to the bottm of the ninth.

muddie
07-24-2011, 08:11 PM
Sappelt, Phipps, and Alonso up in the ninth.

muddie
07-24-2011, 08:12 PM
Sappelt pops out for one out.

muddie
07-24-2011, 08:13 PM

Alonso lines a single to right...first and second.

muddie
07-24-2011, 08:16 PM
Hermida singles to right. Knights 2-1.

muddie
07-24-2011, 08:19 PM
First and second, two out. Mez on first and Hermida on second. Dorn stands in with two away.

07-24-2011, 08:20 PM
Torreyes is 2-2 (.402) and Dayton leads 2-1 in the fourth. Kind of a bullpen day. Pearl started and went three nice innings. Now it's Chad "Sharky" Rogers.

muddie
07-24-2011, 08:22 PM
Bats win! Bats win! Holy Cow Steve, Bats win on Dorn's drive to the right field wall. Mez and Hermida score on a double by Danny Dorn.

Richburg has homered (9), but Bakersfield trails 3-2 after four. Blaze are looking for their ninth straight.

Ryan Wright has hit his first professional HR and the AZL Reds lead 2-1 in the second. Brandon Dailey was aboard with a leadoff single. Eliezer Beard pitching for the Reds.

Wright has added a triple. It's 4-4.

Scrap Irony
07-24-2011, 11:58 PM
Wright should be tearing up the AZL. He needs to be moved up ASAP, IMO. It's not like the Billings' 2B are anything to write home about.

Speaking of Billings, it's really, really odd to see the Rookie League team much older than the low A team, but that's what's happening right now. Look at the starting eight for Dayton and you see six guys (Duran, Rodriguez, Torreyes, Barnhart, Bowe, and Hamilton) 20 or under. That doesn't include Vidal who's only 21 at the hot corner.

Really nice core there-- and underrated by the national pundits. (Much like Cozart's group at AAA has been.)

In fact, the Reds could field a pretty solid list of prospects who won't be able to order a Bud Light, but you may want to keep an eye on over the next five years or so:

B. Hamilton SS
You know him already. Has proven he can play SS. Now he only needs the reps and consistency. Really coming on strong.
R. Torreyes 2B
All he does is hit. And field. And hit with power. As complete a player as there is in the low minors. And he's built like the hot girl's gay best friend.
Y. Rodriguez RF
Tools are there. Even in what many consider a down year (so far), has an OPS over 750
J. Duran LF
Showing signs of finding his power. Needs to keep watch the K's. Nice bounceback.
J. Silva DH
Why do I get visions of Moseby, Barfield, and Bell every time I see Silva?
T. Burnhart C
Love his D. Reminds me of Hanigan, but he has more offensive tools. Will be a major leaguer someday-- the only question is what he'll do when he gets there.
J. Perez 1B
Cheating here. He's played mostly at SS, but has played all over the IF in Arizona. Power is there, but it could be a desert mirage.
M. Mendez 3B
Neither Vidal nor Buckley are underage (both are 21). Henry Rodriguez and DiDi Gregorious are also just too old. So I went with the kid who's mashing in the low levels. Intriguing season, to be sure.
T. Bowe CF
One season, he's going to figure out his tools. When he does, he'll be a monster. If not, he'll be Denis Phipps. Scratch that.
D. Corcino SP
Or Eliezer Beard. Like them both.

You don't really have to cheat at 1B. Carlos Sanchez is no slouch.

Arias would certainly be in the mix at 3B.

Brandon Dailey and Humberto Valor would be on the roster as infielders.

Waldrop in the OF.

Julio Morillo is OPSing .894 as an 18-year-old catcher in AZ. And his platoon mate, Wagner Gomez (a switch-hitter), is at .830.

Your mention of Theo Bowe got me thinking . . . didn't realize he was that young. He might be a significantly underrated guy by most of us.

Scrap Irony
07-25-2011, 12:33 PM
You could definitely fill out a Top Ten list, mace, and it would be among the top two or three in baseball, IMO. Perhaps the best.

Cincinnati has shown an ability to move young prospects to high levels quickly. (H. Rodriguez being the latest in a line that includes top-end talents such as Bruce and Mesoraco and others like N. Soto and Sulburan.) The younger prospects are at the high levels, the more likely they become contributors early in their mlb careers. The Reds have also shown an abilitiy to pick older guys who move steadily until they too can contribute. (Cozart and Frazier say hi.)

Minor league development has been a blessing for at least five years.
