Re: Chris Dickerson hits for the Cycle in Bats win plus Votto and Dumatrait thoughts
For whatever it's worth:
I think there should be some relaxation of the "put this in the minor league folder" rule. I, for one, consider myself an uneducated (and disinterested) philistine when it comes to the lower bowels of the Reds' system, but I'm an enthusiastic learner when it comes to players who have made enough of a splash that I expect to see them at GABP someday. I even suspect I knew about and was excited about Cueto before a good number of people here, last year, though living in Dayton may have had something to do with that...
I see no reason to banish Votto or Bailey threads to the minor league area. I was also briefly confused (for all of 90 seconds, but still) when I started looking for Draft Updates earlier this month and couldn't find them in the Sun Deck or ORG. In short, I think that any discussion that an only-mildly-informed Reds' fan such as myself would be interested in should be fair game in the bigger/major league forums. Which is by no means a death blow against the minor league forums, as I know there are plenty of people out there who are Billings Wonks and who don't ever want to stop talking about that stuff, too...
PS: I did not say so explicitly, so: I enjoyed reading this, and being able to do so in my normal perusal of the Sun Deck. Thank you for the information.
