Infielder Jose Castro has been promoted from Double-A Carolina to Triple-A Louisville to fill the spot vacated by recently-promoted infielder Paul Janish.

Outfielder Felix Perez has been placed on Carolina's temporary inactive list.

Infielder Didi Gregorious and outfielder Josh Fellhauer have been promoted from High-A Bakersfield to Double-A Carolina.

What kind of injury does Cody Puckett have, and how long is he expected to be out? (It's been a month already.)

Any word on the reason for the Perez thing?

Am surprised that Gregorius was the one promoted and not Brodie Greene. Guess they were looking for more of a pure SS. Is Rojas a long way from coming back?

Puck and Jas should both be back in a little over a week. Puck is still rehabbing from a broken wrist while Jas is coming back from a shoulder injury.
Perez could be back in a few days.

Jas? Puck?

Is it too much to write their names, 21? The nickname thing is so tired.

(I fully realize this is coming from an older generation, but nicknames only work when everyone is in on it. It takes much longer to figure out who you're talking about and I feel like I'm reading a Facebook page. And get off my lawn. And i would have gotten away with it to, if not for you pesky kids. And all that.)

All that aside, having Puckett back is good news, though Henry Rodriguez has done very well at 2B. As a 21-year-old, he's done very, very well well below the radar.

It's a pet peeve from way back in Journalism 101. You tell the name, then give the nickname later in the same article. If it's a good, descriptive, colorful nickname. If it sucks as a nickname, come up with one yourself, steal one from another reporter, or just use his real name.

And plays on first and last names combined are extremely dated. Other than a case like YRod, where many different prospects own the Rodriguez surname, it should probably be ignored. (Personally, I like Stormin' Yorman better anyway.)

Now that I have that off my chest, I think I'm going to go back to my Ovaltine, afaghan, and All My Children.

I understand and appreciate how close you are to these players but it makes it difficult for the more casual followers of minor league baseball (myself included) to understand the point that you are trying to get across.

Of course I know you give the full name first and then go on with the last name for the rest of the article. If I was writing an article (or even a blog post) I would use that. However, since all I'm doing is trying to give quick insight to you guys I thought it wasn't that big of a deal, and would be informative, giving you guys an inside look that you would not usually have. That's something I thought people would love to have instead of using "Cody Puckett. Dave Sappelt." However, if you guys don't want that I'll be more than happy to refrain and not post anymore lol.
And is it a Nautical themed, Pashmina afaghan?

I just don't want to have to wade through nicknames to get to the information. (Which is why I'm here. I don't give a crap what they call each other.)

And it's an octagonal pattern in repeating colors of red, orange, pink, and yellow. Plus black as a border.

+1. The biggest problem is that many of us aren't close enough to the situation, or know the players well enough to have any sense of familarity w/ the nicknames of many players. Jas? = Rojas?

I appreciate the info, I honestly do but I get lost on the nicknames

cinreds21
07-25-2011, 12:59 PM
They honestly are not rocket science. lol. The only one that is off the wall is Henry Rodriguez's. But whatever I'll be out of here come September anyway. I'm sure Jamie Ramsey will suffice.

That's fine, but the rest of us don't deal directly with these players, so calling them by their actual names would be much more helpful to us layfolks.

There's no need to take things so personally. It was a simple request that numerous people, including myself, have made and if you're so bothered by it that you want to take your ball and go home, that's your prerogative. We’d love to have you continue to post here, but not with this chip on your shoulder when people offer constructive feedback.

Well Bog and mFo and P Did and me have no clue, yo.

So us lazy folks (you know, the guy who created the site, a moderator, and two guys with around 5,000 posts on Red-related information) need some more information.

Yo.

It's not too much to ask, really. In fact, it's less work and more informative.

I could care less what your post count is, if you created this site, or if you invented the internet. The way you went about attacking someone's posting style on a message board was childish. Maybe a simple polite request to clarify would have had more success. I'm sure you knew what he was saying anyway, just trying to stir things up. Be happy with the info you are receiving, it wasn't available a couple years ago.

I've seen at least one simple polite request or I wouldn't have chimed in.

I doubt you can find one person that reads his posts that is unappreciative of the information he provides, but must that information include nicknames that are completely irrelevant to everyone else? I don't think it's unrealistic, ungrateful or rude to ask someone to refrain from using them so the posts are much clearer to the people that read them.

Pretty much... I'd much rather have good information readily available that takes me a second to decipher than no information, or information that I have to search 5-6 sites to find...

I agree 100%. Honestly, cinreds21 could come in here and post in Japaense for all I care. He's providing information that no one else is, and if you're too lazy to 'decipher' it (speaking of which, I've never had a single problem figuring out who he's talking about; not only that, but I enjoy hearing the nicknames), then why don't you just do without the information and move on?

This thread brings back fond memories of the Keymastur thread of years old. Not that I expect anyone to stumble threads created by cinreds21 on a weight lifting board bragging about how he can get around professional baseball's steriod testing and only the idiots get caught.

Oh what I would have paid to have been a fly in the louisville's locker room when he got back in after the game to check back on that thread. Must have taken a bottle of clorox to get his skivies cleaned that night.

anyhoo back to point. cinreds21, I appreciate your post and the information you pass along, but point in case when you listed the lineups the other day, the first name listed was "Q" I had no idea who Q was. I don't follow the High A or AA teams all that close, so it was completely lost on me. It would have helped to have the player's name. Post as you like, call me lazy if you wish, hope you don't consider me ungrateful, perhaps I'll even take the time to pay more attention to the guys in AA and their corresonding nick names one day, but I start getting nick names of player's I don't know, I tend to just skim past it. I don't follow the minor league closely day to day, just trying to capture the highlights as I swing by.

anyhoo, that's enough from me on the topic at hand.

21, pretty sure everyone on this board is grateful for all the info you have provided and continue to provide. Not sure if the trade deadline is getting to you or what, but take a deep breath and enjoy the minor league threads. No need to snap at every poster :beerme:

Back to the topic..... like to see what Didi does at Carolina, hope he can keep swinging a nice bat.
