    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Not in the near future. The other teams will see his numbers and Reds will get next to nothing in return. Not a big, projectable pitcher, didn't do well at AAA. He's a throw in right now in a deal.

    Best idea for Corcino is to make him as useful as possible, which is the bullpen, and see where it goes.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day (2014)

    Tuesday, May 27: Jesse Winker, Bakersfield . . . 2-3, 2 2B, 3 BB, R, 2 RBI. It's the second MiLPOD prize in five days for the lefty slugger, during which time he's 12-18 with 6 walks. Ridiculous. Winker's now batting .324 with a .425 OBP.

    Also notable . . .

    Pitchers

    Robert Stephenson (Pen): 6.1 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K. That's four good starts in a row for the org's top pitching prospect, whose ERA sits at 3.26.

    Elvin Ramirez (Pen): 1.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K.

    Brooks Pinckard (Pen): 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 0 K. Outstanding athlete is cobbling together his best season, by far.

    Jacob Johnson (Bake): 3 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K. Becoming a fixture here. Has given up 1 earned run in last 20.1 IP.

    Nick Routt (Day): 5.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 3 K. Lefty's seasonal debut.

    Dan Langfield (Day): 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Has 15 K in 9.2 IP.

    Josh Smith (Lou): 6 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 4 K.

    Kris Negron (Lou): 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K. The IF-OF was the only one of five Bats pitchers not scored upon. Hmm.

    Hitters

    Ryan Wright (Bake): 4-6, 2B, R, 2 RBI. The second baseman's second 4-hit game within a week.

    Seth Mejias-Brean (Bake): 2-3, 3 BB, R, RBI. The hyphenated god of walks.

    Beau Amaral (Bake): 3-6, 2 2B, 3 R, RBI. The CF is putting himself on the map.

    Juan Silva (Bake): 3-7, R, 2 RBI, SB (22).

    Zach Vincej (Bake): 2-5, 2B.

    Rey Navarro (Pen): 2-4, 2 2B. Did you know that the 24-year-old 2B (a switch-hitter) has been an all-star in three different minor leagues?

    Carlton Daal (Day): 2-3, BB, R. Out of his brief slump.

    Phil Ervin (Day): 1-3, BB, SB (17).

    Sebastian Elizalde (Day): 1-3, BB, R, RBI.

    Sean Buckley (Day): HR (2), BB, 2 RBI.

    Ryan LaMarre (Lou): 1-2, 2B, BB.

    Jason Bourgeois (Lou): 1-3, 2 BB, 2 R. Playing well.

    Tucker Barnhart (Lou): 1-3, BB, 2 RBI.

    . . .

    And yet, our boys were swept. Contributing to that was . . .

    The absurd stat of the day: This wouldn't be so troubling if it weren't a case of the apple falling so close to the tree. But Bakersfield left 19 men on base in nine innings. Think of that. If you leave the bases loaded six times, that's only 18. Good heavens.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day (2014)

    Minor League Player of the Day Wednesday May 28

    The "I Can't Believe It's Not Ben Lively" Edition

    On a day where there wasn't a whole lot to get excited about on the old back forty, Seth Mejias-Brean (RZ prospect #9) had what is quickly becoming a typical night for himself. Big Hyphen was 2-3 with a double, 2 runs, and 2 free passes. The 23 year old out of U of Arizona gets on base, something this organization has a great need for at the higher levels. On the season, SMB's OBP is a pleasant .396. He also has 37 walks to 36 Ks in 246 PAs this year. Count me amongst the bunch anxiously waiting to see what he can do in Pensacola, where Juan Silverio (who could easily take over for Chris Nelson in AAA) stands in the way.

    The Rest

    Tim "All You Can Eat" Crabbe: (RZ #44) 6IP, 7H, 0R, 2BB, 7K Crabbe was a very close second after turning in one of his best starts of the year. His ERA now stands at 4.71. I just prefer the guy that gets on base 4 out of 5 trips, nothing personal.

    Hernan Iribarren: 3-4, 2B, RBI, CS

    Ruben Gotay: 2-4, 2B, R, RBI

    Felix Perez: 2-4, RBI

    Bryan Anderson: 2-4

    Krristopher "Kris" Negron: 2-4 2R, 3B, 2 RBI, SB

    Brodie Greene: 3-4, 2R, 2B

    Drew Hayes: (RZ #63) 2IP, BB, 2K

    Timothy Adelman: 3.2 IP, 2H, R, 3K

    Marquez Smith: 2-5, R, 2B

    David Vidal: 1-3, 3R, 2B, RBI, 2BB

    Jon Tolisano: 1-1, 2BB

    Beau Amaral: 2-4, 2B, 2RBI

    Sean Lucas: 2IP, 2K

    Carlos Gonzalez: 1IP, K Save #11 The 23 year old from Cal St Northridge should make next years prospect list after a head turning start to 2014--still unscored upon in 24.1 innings.

    Jeff Gelalich: (RZ #53) 2-4, RBI, SB

    Sebastian Elizalde: (RZ #55) 2-3, 2B, BB, CS Slash line .326/.456/.556

    Sammy Diaz: 2-3


    Redszone Top Ten
    3. Phil Ervin: 0-4, K
    5. Yorman Rodriguez: 1-3, 3B, RBI
    10. Ben Lively: 6IP, 7H, 4ER, 4BB, 6K He only surrendered one extra base hit (double), so maybe this was a fluke...not terrible either way.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    I must admit, Beau Amaral is getting my attention rather quickly.

    Anybody got a decent report on him? How does he project?
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner

    Better than calling him 'Krusty' (no offense, Krusty).

    Elizalde's numbers are at Dayton, in a hitting neutral league. Next step Bakersfield and a big hitter's league. Oh boy...
    No - I am not from State Farm!

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day (2014)

    Thursday, May 29: Wandy Peralta, Bakersfield . . . 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K. The 22-year-old lefthander, unranked and unvoted for in the Redszone prospect polls, continues his pattern of periodic brilliance. This was his third start of similar dominance. The rest have been, to be charitable, lackluster. Peralta's big effort Thursday night came against the club chasing the Blaze in their Cal League division.

    Also notable . . .

    Hitters

    Felix Perez (Lou): 2-2, HR (6), 2 BB, 3 R, 2 RBI. It was the outfielder's fourth 2-hit game in the last six. Look, I've never been a big fan of Perez. But, two years removed from batting .301 in Louisville, it has reached the point of "What's a fella got to do around here to get a call?"

    Chris Nelson (Lou): 2-4, 2 2B, RBI.

    Kris Negron (Lou): 2-4, 2B.

    David Vidal (Bake): 3-4, RBI. The newly christened catcher is batting .441 in his small sample.

    Kyle Waldrop (Bake): 2-4, 2B, R, SB (9).

    Beau Amaral (Bake): 1-3, R, 2 RBI. Having one of the better seasons among the farmhands.

    Seth Mejias-Brean (Bake): 1-3, BB, RBI. OBP is up to .398.

    Jesse Winker (Bake): HR (6).

    Avain Rachal (Day): 2-3, 2B, BB, SB.

    Phil Ervin (Day): 1-3, 2B, BB.

    Joe Hudson (Day): 1-3, HR (2), BB, 2 RBI.

    Pitchers

    Ismael Guillon (Day): 7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 7 K. Righted himself impressively after a shaky start. Brought ERA down to 2.87.

    Chien-Ming Wang (Lou): 6.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 1 K. The tall veteran has lately shown some value. Threw six scoreless before weakening.

    Ben Klimesh (Bake): 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K. Completed Bakersfield's shutout.

    . . . .

    Pensacola was postponed.

    Record for the day: 2-1.

    Record for the year: 110-103.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day (2014)

    Winker second in BA's Hot Sheet for this week and got some very serious praise in their prospect chat. Elizalde also with good mention.

    These guys are the type of hitter you wish the Reds currently had. Hope they both move up soon, with a few others. Also hope the Reds get some more solid approach hitters in the draft this coming week.

    Re: Minor-League Player of the Day (2014)

    Friday, May 30: David Vidal, Bakersfield . . . 3-4, 2B, HR (3), BB, 2 RBI. It was a tight call between Vidal and Amir Garrett (6 shutout innings), but Vidal's body of work tips the balance. The nascent catcher, formerly a third baseman, has made only 48 plate appearances this year, but they've been dandies. Check out this slash line: .474 (BA)/.583/.947/1.531. Astonishing. They say his defense is rapidly improving. I'm not declaring him the next Mike Piazza, but hey, they both attended Miami Dade.

    Also notable . . .

    Pitchers

    Amir Garrett (Day): 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K. His best outing of the season, by far. Basketball schmasketball.

    Pedro Diaz (Day): 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K. That's 9 shutout innings between the two of them. Unfortunately, the Dragons never scored and lost in 11.

    Mat Latos (Lou): 4.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K. Does this hasten Tony Cingrani to the bullpen?

    Fabian Williamson (Pen): 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K. Sad to say, that was the Blue Wahoos' highlight in a pair of punchless defeats.

    Curtis Partch (Lou): 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K.

    Jimmy Moran (Bake): 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.

    Hitters

    Thomas Neal (Lou): 3-5, 2B, R. Had expected more of this from him.

    Chris Nelson (Lou): 2-5, 2B, HR (3), 2 R, 2 RBI.

    Hernan Iribarren (Lou): 2-3, BB, R.

    Jason Bourgeois (Lou): 2-5, 2B, RBI.

    Felix Perez (Lou): 2-5, R. We'll say nothing more today, since Bernadina had a good game last night.

    Juan Perez (Bake): 3-5, 2 R, RBI.

    Kyle Waldrop (Bake): 2-3, R, SB (10).

    Beau Amaral (Bake): 2-5, 2B, R, 2 RBI, SB (4, 14). Looks like a nice 7th-round pick from 2012. And to think that his outfield teammate at UCLA (Jeff Gelalich, round one) was much more heralded.

    Sammy Diaz (Day): 2-3, BB.

    Rey Navarro (Pen): 2-3 (game two).

    Steve Selsky (Pen): 1-2 (game one).

    Devin Lohman (Pen): 1-1 (game one).

    Michael Lorenzen (Pen): 1-1, 2B (game one). Yes, he pitched. And no, he didn't make that list. Not at all.

    . . . .

    Note: Daniel Wright, promoted from Dayton, made his first start for Bakersfield. He gave up 6 runs in 5 innings. Even so, the Blaze led until High Desert scored 3 in the bottom of the 8th.

    Early on, and for what it's worth, it looked as though the organization had decisively turned around its losing ways of the last couple years. Lately, not so much.

    Record for the day: 1-4.

    Record for the season: 111-107.
