South Bend was leading the league in hitting and had scored 20 runs over the previous two games, and had won 10 straight until tonight.
    He probably heard Walt was there and wanted to impress.

    Passing up Wacha BC of Travieso will come back to haunt Jocketty and the Reds for the next decade. Imagine Wacha and Cingrani sitting in AAA waiting.

    If anyone wants to argue semantics, that's fine, but the only point I was trying to make was that I don't think you promote a guy to A+ who is 2 years removed from HS and has only 87 IP at low A.
    I think you give him at least 4 more starts. If he keeps pitching this well send him to the Cal league.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    I'll believe it once Ryan Wright, Brodie Greene, and Sean Buckley put up the "monster" seasons you predicted.

    So you think Travieso has no chance to succeed and you have Wacha dominating? You really think it is going to haunt them for a decade? It could, but I hope not.

    Remember how much better the Trevor Bauer pick looked over Gerritt Cole at times. Things change quickly, especially when pitchers advance.

    It is awfully early to think anything like this.

    Nope, knee jerk reactions are the standard around here these days. I'd give him credit for almost waiting a full year after the draft to state something like this. Of course it has taken early success from one of them to make this point.

    A lineup that had won 10 in a row to boot.

    I was at the game Sal Romano pitched and that liner that hit him in the foot was scalded. Not surprised he had to go to the DL.

    Re: Nick Travieso promoted to Dayton

    Seems a little early to compare a 22 year old college pitcher Mike Wacha to a 19 year old high school pitcher Travieso, less than a year into their pro careers.

    Wacha was much like Leake considered close to ready out of college and as a #3 at best rotation arm. Travieso's upside is higher but his floor could be lower, thats the risk you take with a high school arm vs college arm.

    Far to early to predict 3 years down the road let alone 10.

    Is Stephenson ready? I'm a firm believer that when a pitcher is ready to pitch in the majors, he's ready. (A hitter, not so much.) Could he be ready to pitch in Cincinnati if called upon?

    I've only seen him once, so I can't speak for his consistency at all, but that start would have played anywhere IMO. If he keeps throwing like this, we're gonna be waiting for him to build up his innings more than anything else.

    Anyone know when Travieso's first start is?

    Would it not had been more prudent though to take someone who could be ready quicker...since either Bailey or Latos .....unless they score big on a new TV contract...might not be resign-able?

    Well said. Talk about drafting players with low upside.

    Re: Nick Travieso promoted to Dayton

    Travieso's start tonight (at home against Lake County) is so eagerly and curiously awaited that I wondered what the expectation might be among the ranks here. I'll go with this:

    5 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K.
