    Re: TJ Friedl: Ceiling, ETA, Fit

    I just love this guy.

    He's already got a Walk a Hit, 2 Runs Scored, 2 Stolen Bases, and it's only the 3rd inning.

    People pointing out the lack of offense in that league are correct. Friedl's numbers look pedestrian, and he had a horrid start, but his wRC+ is 121 (better than both Trammell and Siri) coming into today. Seeing how the other parts of his game - defense, baserunning - are pretty well developed, he seems the one guy who may have earned a mid-year promotion to AAA. The Reds have a ton of journeyman having career years in the AAA OF, but Refsnyder, OGrady and even Ervin, shouldn't standing in Friedl's way. Until the big league roster is sorted out when the Reds start selling, those guys should be pushed aside and the AAA outfield should primarily be the guys still young enough to possibly become something. For me that's Longhi in LF, Friedl in CF an Aquino in RF. Ervin can be the 4th OF and O'grady and Refsnyder can stick to 1B. Perhaps Refsnyder can get another look in the IF. Blake Trahan isn't a must play. We know he's the IF glove in case of emergency - Paul Janish for a new generation. Christain Colon has cooled way off and Sherman Johnson can be moved to make room. O'Grady at 1B, Blandino at 2B, Colon, Trahan et al at SS and Refsnyder at 3B. Refsnyder can play 2B on occasion with Blandino moving around.

    He finally got stopped today (Lookouts lost 1-0). Boy, that was some streak he was on. See if he can start a new one.

    Well, they gave him the day off the next game. Maybe it inspired Trammel, as Taylor earned his first MiPOD Award.

    Back to work, Friedl is ready to stay hot. A Walk, Stolen Base, and then a 2-run HR to give the Lookouts a lead in the 5th. One more Plate Appearance to go tonight.

    Even though Chatanooga only scored one run tonight, Friedl bettered his Avg, OBP, and OPS.
