    Hugs, smiling, and interactive Twitter accounts, don't mean winning baseball. Until this community understands that we are cursed to relive the madness.

    Ventura was assigned to Dayton, btw.

    In the Braves organization he played mostly RF. He does not seem to have the bat to stay on a corner. Thus, Reds are starting him in CF today.

    I've read that some scouts expect Ventura's body to fill out a little bit, which would probably cost him some speed. As far as I can tell, the best case scenario is Ender Inciarte with less defensive ability. I won't be holding my breath for it though.

    I'll be seeing him in person at some point in the next couple of days, but watching some video of him from his time in Rome, it seems that's already happened some. Video lies sometimes, so I'll update this in the next few days.

    Look who got a 'Helium Watch' note in the latest edition of the BA Prospect Hot Sheet

    Randy Ventura, OF, Reds (19)
    Low Class A Dayton (Midwest)

    Ventura was a speedy outfielder who was a little buried in low Class A Rome because he was on the same roster with defensive wiz/speedster Cristian Pache. After being traded to the Reds for international signing bonus space, he's playing at low Class A Dayton where he's a little buried because he's on the same roster as defensive wiz/speedster Jose Siri. But Ventura has a clear path to the big leagues himself as a top-of-the-scale runner. He can bunt and he can play center or left field, giving him a potential big league backup projection. He hit .367/.394/.667 this week with four doubles, a triple and a home run.

    Odd (encouraging) stat: Ventura in 22 games has already matched his extra base hit total that he had with Rome this year in 95 games

    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.
