I still fail to understand the logic of Negron batting leadoff, even though there aren't many better options.

I fail to understand why Negron is still even around.

Dragons won 3-2. Hayes with his 20th save, and Hamilton with steal number 82.

Here's your typical Hamilton inning:

# Billy Hamilton walks.
# With Ronald Torreyes batting, Billy Hamilton steals (82) 2nd base.
# With Ronald Torreyes batting, throwing error by Pete Budkevics on the pickoff attempt, Billy Hamilton to 3rd.
# Ronald Torreyes grounds out, second baseman Casio Grider to first baseman Chris Jacobs. Billy Hamilton scores.

And taking up a space on the 40-man roster, I believe.

You are correct.

In the Dayton game, Hamilton also had 2 fantastic plays from deep in the hole to throw out the runner. Best I've seen all year from him.

That's also a good example of why I love Torreyes. Runner on third, he gets the ball to the right side of the field. It's like clockwork, and something sorely missing from the big club.

After two hitless innings with 5 K in Bakersfield's 6-4 victory last night, Chris Manno now has this ridiculous line since acquired in the Gomes trade: 11.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 5 BB, 23 K. Including his work for Hagerstown, his season looks like this: 54.2 IP, 22 H, 9 R, 5 ER, 20 BB, 92 K, 0.82 ERA.

As desperate for relief pitching as Carolina is . . .

Strange yet provocative stat of the day: Kyle Waldrop, Billings' 6-foot-3, 19-year-old outfielder, is tied for third in the Pioneer League in both doubles and triples.

With 6 home runs, Steve Selsky is tied for third in the AZL. He has 52 at-bats. The two guys ahead of him, with 9 and 8 HR, have 148 and 150 AB. Of the other guys with 6 HR, all have over 100 AB.

Mitch Clarke's latest good start for Dayton last night ought not to go unnoticed. Clarke is a lefty from Canada who won't be 21 until later this month. His numbers in the Midwest League: 30.1 IP, 24 H, 6 ER, 11 BB, 20 K, 1.78 ERA.

Clarke pitched very well last year in the AZL, but worked only 39 innings.

Another guy who's having a great season for Dayton with little attention is right-handed reliever Daniel Wolford: 60.2 IP, 51 H, 9 ER, 20 BB, 70 K, 1.34 ERA.

Just saw in my paper this morning that the Reds released Phillip Valiquette...hadn't seen that mentioned here.

That opens up a 40-man spot, correct?

I wonder if he will get moved up before the season is over. Thoughts?

Doubtful. There are only about two weeks left in the season and he only has about two weeks at the High A level. With neither Bakersfield or Carolina fighting for a playoff spot, there isn't a need to promote him.

I get a feeling that this move is either in anticipation of Burton coming off the 60-day DL or moving Mesoraco onto the 40-man.

It has nothing to do with either of those things.

If that were the case, the Reds simply would have dropped him from the 40 man. Instead, they cut him.

Hm, never mind then. I'm not very good with the details of these transactions... any ideas as to why?
