    Derrick Robinson

    Does anyone think Derrick Robinson has a chance, he has been pretty good this sprint (I know, means nothing). I think he will at least be the first call up for an injury. any thoughts?

    His minor league stats are really unimpressive and over a very long stretch of time. I have a hard time believing that these stats over just one spring training is enough to prove that suddenly he's a completely different player.

    Good insurance policy if Choo is hurt during the year. Choo has been injury prone the last few years and so far this spring that trend seems to be continuing. Although most of them have been minor injuries it seemed like he was always ailing while with Cleveland.

    He'll be AAA depth, because Xavier Paul is on the 40-man and did very well for us last year. However, he seems like a great guy to have waiting in the wings: he's a switch hitter who can switch hit, lead off if necessary, and get on base fairly reliably. He's got no power or real hit tool to speak of, but you take what you can get from a backup. I expect him to get a call up before Hamilton so as not to interrupt the latter's development.

    Even if they do call up Robinson, he isn't going to play. He will be used as a pinch runner and perhaps a late inning defensive replacement. Don't expect him to get at bats, because frankly, he isn't much of a hitter. That can be said for anyone they are likely to call up unless they go full boar and bring up Hamilton.

    .650ish minor league OPS most seasons. Probably will lead-off twice per week. Ewww! Casper Wells gets my vote. Deal Arredondo for him.

    Robinson gets the call I'm sure, but unfortunately it's going to be quite the loss of slugging on this team/bench. I think the only guy that could make up for that is Lutz, but I don't think there's any way they rush him when they're all about not rushing Hamilton.

    Re: Derrick Robinson

    What does Derrick Robinson add that Denis Phipps doesn't? Phipps all day, every day.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Can't say I disagree with this one bit. You've got to think that Phipps gives you more, even if you do sacrifice some speed.

    They said on the telecast that his family is at the game tonight. I hope he gets in

    Re: Derrick Robinson

    im going to try and said this withouy soumding like a jerk, but this is why baseball is so great. You never know when you're gonna get that call, unfortunately it was at Ryan's expense.

    I'm not saying Robinson will play a lot but his in the show, and who could ask for more. I wish Ludwick a speedy recover, but Derrick needs to make the most of it because it could be gone in a flash.

    That was my deep thought of the day.
